Written by on | OpenCritic

We now know when the next Community Day in Pokemon GO will take place. 

Developer Niantic has announced that Pokemon GO's next Community Day will take place on May 24th. The event will run from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. local time. Seedot will be the focus of this Community Day, and will appear more frequently in the wild, with there being a chance of spotting a shiny one. Evolving Seedot into a Nuzleaf during the event will allow players to get a Shiftry that will know move Bullet Seed. Players can take snapshots during the event in order to receive a special surprise. For $1, gamers will be able to access a Community Day Special Research story entitled Seeing Double. In this Special Research, players will follow Professor Willow as he researches Seedot and its evolved forms, and learns how much the Pokemon and its evolved forms love messing with Trainers and Pokemon. Completing this Research line will reward gamers with three Incense, five Golden Razz Berries, and more. 

There will also be a special May Community Day bundle on sale, which comes with an Elite Fast TM, 30 Ultra Balls, three Incense, and three Lucky Eggs. 

Other bonuses that will be available during the Community Day will include 3x Catch XP and increased Incense times. Buddy Pokemon with a Buddy level of Great Buddy or higher will bring their Trainers helpful items, which includes Poke Balls, throughout the event.  

Community Day is not the only event going on in Pokemon GO this month. This Sunday, May 17th, will be an Incense Day featuring Water and Dark- Type Pokemon, specifically Carvanha. The event will run from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. The type of Pokemon attracted by the Incense will change every hour during the event. You can see the schedule for the Incense Day here. During the hours that will feature Water-Type Pokemon, gamers may encounter Horsea, Tympole, and if they are lucky, Alomomola. When Dark-Types are attracted to the Incense, players may run into Murkrow, Sableye, and if they are lucky, Scraggy. 

Pokemon GO is available now for Android and iOS mobile devices.
