How to prepare for Pokemon Go Chespin Community Day

If you’re going to take part in a Community Day, there are a few things you can do to prepare and get the most out of the event:

  • Purchase an Incense to use on the day as they will last longer than usual.
  • Save any Lure Modules you have as they will last for three hours during the event.
  • Stock up on lots of Ultra Balls so you can catch plenty of the headline Pokemon.
  • Transfer any unwanted Pokemon so you’ll have space for all the catching you’ll do.
  • Check the bonuses that run during the event so you can take advantage of them.

There will also be a ticket for the February Community Day Special Research story, Abundant Noise, available to purchase from the in-game Shop closer to the event date.

Alongside all of these Community Days, there have been a few Community Day Classics that bring back old headliners. The next one is scheduled for February 21, although the star hasn’t been announced yet.
