A Double-Day Bonanza – December Community Day 2019

We knew two things going into December’s Community Day – it would involve the previous 11 Pokemon featured this year, and that it would be on December 14th and 15th.

Today, Niantic formally announced the double-day Community Day in their latest blog post, giving us the following Pokemon and their Community Day signature moves they obtain upon evolving:

  • Totodile – Hydro Cannon
  • Swinub – Ancient Power
  • Treecko – Frenzy Plant
  • Bagon – Outrage
  • Torchic – Blast Burn
  • Slakoth – Body Slam
  • Mudkip – Hydro Cannon
  • Ralts – Synchronoise
  • Turtwig – Frenzy Plant
  • Trapinch – Earth Power
  • Chimchar – Blast Burn

These Pokemon will be spawning in increased rates in the wild from 9am until 9pm local time on December 14th and 15th. As a bonus, between 11am and 2pm local time, we also see these benefits:

  • 2x catch Stardust
  • 2x catch XP
  • 1/2 Egg hatch distance

Also referenced by Serebii, all of the 2018 Community Day Pokemon will be available in raids, as well as their signature moves. If you need a reminder, they are the following:

  • Pikachu – Surf
  • Dratini – Draco Meteor
  • Bulbasaur – Frenzy Plant
  • Mareep – Dragon Pulse
  • Charmander – Blast Burn
  • Larvitar – Smack Down
  • Squirtle – Hydro Cannon
  • Eevee – Last Resort
  • Chikorita – Frenzy Plant
  • Beldum – Meteor Mash
  • Cyndaquil – Blast Burn

There is also potential that all of these Pokemon will rotate in Eggs, so make use of that sweet reduced egg distance!

My Opinion

I like how just like last December, this one is available all day so that you can make the most of the time that you have, and you’re not limited to a small time frame.

On the other hand, apart from Bagon and Torchic, I’m not particularly looking forward to the rest of the Pokemon featured. I already accrued a 96% shiny Swampert, and Slakoth was disgusting in Europe (we know the drill, barely any spawns, and then the make-up weekend took over the Go Fest event spawns). It would be nice, however, to get a good shiny of anything else, really.

I didn’t get to participate much in Swinub Community Day, because I was laid up in bed with an injury, therefore the first one I sort-of missed.

There’s only one thing to say – bring it on!
