Everything you need to know for Community Day featuring Electabuzz

November is celebrating two separate Community Days this month. The first will feature Electabuzz, the electric Pokemon on Nov. 15

The Pokemon franchise is having an eventful year in making history for its general audience. For the first time in Pokemon Go history, Community Day will be celebrated twice in the month of November. Events that are sure to be celebrated, this will be more than enough for trainers to take advantage of if they only one or the other. The first Community Day event will spawn more Electabuzz this coming Sunday for trainers to catch. The timing will be essential for trainers, especially if they are on the shiny hunt to catch a shiny Electabuzz and possibly a shiny Electivire!

What makes this Community Day different than the events prior is that most Community Days featured the basic or first evolutionary stage of a Pokemon during the hours of the event. This time around, this is the first time during Community Day that the spawned Pokemon will be in their second evolutionary form. Electabuzz evolved from Elekid, the baby, and the first form of the Pokemon evolutionary line. It is not a strange difference that Elekid is not the featured spawned Pokemon for Community Day. However, it is not ruled out that Elekid will not be featured for the event. During the hours of Community Day, Elekid will be hatching from 2 km eggs. Noted, that this will decrease the chances of acquiring a shiny Elekid rather than catching a shiny Elekid in the wild when there are more chances of the Pokemon spawning more frequently.

The Electabuzz Community Day event is set to take place on Nov 15, 2020, from the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to wherever the trainer plays locally for Pokemon Go. In order to participate in Electabuzz Community Day, trainers must pay US $1 or whatever is the equivalent amount to wherever the trainer’s home country currency is. To purchase the ticket, trainers can open the “Shop” option in Pokemon Go, find the ticket for Electabuzz Community Day, and the ordering process will from iOS or Google Play Store to whatever the trainer’s phone service provider uses. Niantic has been using this method for trainers to participate during Community Day for the majority of 2020, most likely to still keep the process for remote access for trainers to keep their players safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.

When a trainer purchases a ticket for Community Day, they also have the option to purchase more in-game purchases for Community Day. There will be a special promotional Community Day Box that will cost 1,280 PokeCoins which will contain an Elite Fast TM, three Super Egg Incubators, three Incense, and 30 Ultra Balls. There is an additional promotion for a set of 30 Ultra Balls for any trainer to acquire for free. So if a trainer plans on being pretty proactive during Community Day, they have the option to have 60 Ultra Balls at their disposal. A nice strategy to have if the trainer plans on hunting for that shiny Electabuzz. Tickets are nonrefundable, be sure to be ready to participate during the hours of Community Day if you commit to purchase the ticket, trainers.

There will also be special research for the trainer to complete in tasks during the hours of Community Day. The Field Research will focus on tasks necessary that will center on Electabuzz. If the trainer completes said special tasks for Professor Willow, they will be rewarded with a few Sinnoh Stones. This guarantees the trainer to evolve their Electabuzz into an Electivire during the hours of Community Day. If the trainer chooses to do so, their Electivire will have the charged move Flamethrower, a benefit move to have as an Electric-type Pokemon when facing Pokemon that are either Grass or Bug-type.

The surprises do not stop there for trainers! Just like any special event or promotion lately, if the trainer takes a snapshot of a newly caught Electabuzz on their camera, they will definitely have a surprise waiting for them. Normally this contains an exclusive Pokemon that is valued to be really strong or rare; sometimes both! This is always a fun feature to take advantage of during Community Day, especially when trainers want to flex their shiny catches of the day. Be sure to tag Pokemon Go and use the hashtag #PokemonGOCommunityDay when sharing your photos of Electabuzz on social media sites, trainers. Your Electabuzz might be featured on the Pokemon Go official social media account!

The significance of this Community Day featuring Electabuzz and its evolutionary line will be parallel come the following week when the next Pokemon to be featured will be Magmar. The events will most likely be the same when featuring the Spitfire Pokemon and will be the opposite when evolving their pokemon into Magmortar; which doing so will have their Pokemon learn Thunderbolt for a charged move. This event will be taking place the following Saturday on Nov. 21. An exciting time for trainers to take advantage of both events.

Two Community Days for trainers to participate in will be exciting for trainers to take advantage of. With the new feature of Pokemon Go being able to transfer to Pokemon Home, trainers will most likely want to send their Electabuzz to either Pokemon Sword or Shield or their adventure in Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee. Community Day featuring Electabuzz will be a fun event to celebrate trainers, happy hunting!
