Niantic has announced when October’s Pokémon GO Community Day will take place and that Duskull will be the featured Pokémon.
The Community Days are monthly events that feature a special Pokémon that will appear frequently around the world for a few short hours. And, if caught during the event, the Pokémon will know an exclusive move.
Those that evolve Duskull into Dusclops and then Dusknoir “during the event or up to two hours afterward,” will be rewarded with a Dusknoir that knows the Charged Attack, Shadow Ball. As with previous Community Days, Shiny Duskull are more likely to spawn.
The Community Day will take place on Saturday 9th October 2021 from 11am – 5pm local time, with Niantic sharing further details below:
- Duskull will be appearing more frequently in the wild! If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny one!
- Evolve Dusclops (Duskull’s Evolution) during the event or up to two hours afterward to get a Dusknoir that knows the Charged Attack Shadow Ball.
- To help you evolve your Dusclops into Dusknoir, you’ll be able to earn up to four Sinnoh Stones by completing free Timed Research during Duskull Community Day.
- 30 Ultra Balls will be available in the shop at no cost. Be sure to pick them up during the event!
- Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise!
- There’ll be a special one-time-purchase Community Day Box available for 1,280 PokéCoins, featuring 50 Ultra Balls, four Incense, four Star Pieces, and an Elite Charged TM.
