Pokemon Go December 2019 Community Day Guide: Featured Pokemon, Start Times, And More

Uncategorized Admin 0

2019 may be winding down, but Pokemon Go developer Niantic is closing out the year with one final Community Day event. Just like last year, this month’s Community Day will actually be spread across two days–December 14 and 15–and will give players another chance to catch rare Pokemon, learn exclusive moves, and earn some extra bonuses.

There’s a lot happening during this month’s big Pokemon Go event, so to help get you prepared, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about December 2019’s Community Day weekend below, from what Pokemon you’ll be able to find again to all the different bonuses and special moves that will be available.

What Is December’s Featured Pokemon?

While each Pokemon Go Community Day typically stars only one “featured” Pokemon, this month’s event brings back every previous featured Pokemon, giving you another chance to catch them. On December 14 and 15, all of the featured Pokemon from each of 2019’s Community Days will appear more often again in the wild. The full list includes:

  • Totodile
  • Swinub
  • Treecko
  • Torchic
  • Mudkip
  • Ralts
  • Slakoth
  • Trapinch
  • Bagon
  • Turtwig
  • Chimchar

On top of that, you’ll have another chance to encounter the featured Pokemon from 2018’s Community Days as well. During both days of the event, the following Pokemon will appear in Gyms as Raid bosses:

  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Squirtle
  • Pikachu
  • Eevee
  • Dratini
  • Chikorita
  • Cyndaquil
  • Mareep
  • Larvitar
  • Beldum

You will also be more likely to hatch the following Pokemon from eggs on each day of the event:

December 14

  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Pikachu
  • Dratini
  • Totodile
  • Mareep
  • Swinub
  • Larvitar

  • Bagon

December 15

  • Squirtle
  • Eevee
  • Chikorita
  • Cyndaquil
  • Mudkip
  • Ralts
  • Trapinch
  • Beldum
  • Turtwig

What Is December’s Special Community Day Move?

All of them! In addition to bringing back every previous featured Pokemon, you’ll have another chance to get each monster’s special Community Day move, which they normally cannot learn in Pokemon Go through other means. To get these attacks, you’ll need to evolve the Pokemon all the way into their final forms before the event ends on December 15 (although any Pikachu or Eevee you catch during the event should already know their Community Day moves). As a refresher, here is each Pokemon’s Community Day move:

Featured Pokemon Community Day Move
Bulbasaur Frenzy Plant
Charmander Blast Burn
Squirtle Hydro Cannon
Pikachu Surf
Eevee Last Resort
Dratini Draco Meteor
Chikorita Frenzy Plant
Cyndaquil Blast Burn
Totodile Hydro Cannon
Mareep Dragon Pulse
Swinub Ancient Power
Larvitar Smack Down
Beldum Meteor Mash
Treecko Frenzy Plant
Torchic Blast Burn
Mudkip Hydro Cannon
Ralts Synchronoise
Slakoth Body Slam
Trapinch Earth Power
Bagon Outrage
Turtwig Frenzy Plant
Chimchar Blast Burn

What Time Does December’s Community Day Start?

While Community Days typically only run for three hours, December’s big event will take place over two 12-hour periods, running from 9 AM to 9 PM local time on December 14 and 15. You’ll be able to encounter all of the aforementioned Pokemon throughout that time, although certain monsters will be more common each day during a three-hour window. Here are the monsters you’re more likely to see from 11 AM to 2 PM local time each day:

December 14

  • Totodile
  • Swinub
  • Treecko
  • Torchic
  • Slakoth
  • Bagon

December 15

What Other Bonuses Are Available?

On top of bringing back every previous featured Pokemon, Niantic is offering a handful of other bonuses during December’s Community Day weekend. From 11 AM to 2 PM local time each day, you’ll earn twice the normal amount of Stardust and XP for catching Pokemon. Eggs will also hatch at half the distance they normally require during that window of time.
