Pokemon Go Community Day: April May Give Us a Chance at Shiny Bagon
Here's your opportunity to stock up on Bagon Candy.
Mark your calendars, trainers! April’s Pokemon Go Community Day is coming soon, and, if you’re like us, it’s an event you won’t want to miss.
On April 13 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. local time, the Dragon-type Pokemon Bagon will appear more frequently than normal in the wild.
Bagon is a Generation III Pokemon that was first seen in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, which were released on Game Boy Advance in 2003 in North America. Bagon has two evolutions: Shelgon and Salamence.
In Pokemon Go, players can evolve Bagon into Shelgon using 25 Bagon Candy, and evolve Shelgon into Salamence using 100 Bagon Candy. We know that an exclusive battle move will be available during April’s Community Day event (likely for Salamence), but that move hasn’t been revealed just yet.
During this Community Day event, Lure Modules will remain active for three hours, rather than the standard 30 minutes, when activated during this event window. Players will also earn three times the normal amount of experience points for capturing Pokemon during this event.
This will be a great time to activate any Lucky Eggs you may have in your in-game backpack, since they double the amount of experience points you earn for all in-game actions for 30 minutes. Combine the Lucky Egg with the 3x experience point boost and you can earn a ton of experience points in a short amount of time.
Finally, while it’s never a guarantee beforehand, it’s routine for a Shiny version of the starring Pokemon to start appearing during each Community Day event, and we expect Bagon to be no exception.
Depending on where you live, Bagon is typically a pretty rare Pokemon. If you’ve yet to add Bagon or its two evolutions to your Pokedex, make sure you don’t miss out on this exciting event on April 13.
