Pokémon GO February Community Day – Triple Catch Stardust, Double Catch Candy, and Shiny Noibat debut

by Ana Lopez

Niantic has released details about Pokémon GO’s Community Day event in February. This time, the Pokémon that gets the Spotlight is the elusive Noibat. This Pokémon is extremely hard to find in the wild unless players are out after the sun goes down. This Community Day is already well received by fans due to Noibat’s popularity in the game.

Noibat, the Sound Wave Pokémon, will be the featured Pokémon for Community Day in February. Noibat’s glossy form is one of the most sought after in the series due to its distinct color change. The glossy variant takes Noibat’s purple color and goes to a greenish-blue palette. The image above shows players what to look out for and what to look forward to during this Community Day.

As players evolve into a Noibat Nevern during the event, and for up to five hours afterward, the Pokémon learns the Movement of normal Boomburst type. This move is powerful, granting 150 Power in Trainer Battles and 140 Power in Gyms and Raids.

Event Bonuses

There are a few different event bonuses that players can take advantage of during this event. The full list can be found below.

  • Triple Stardust for catching Pokémon.
  • Double Candy for catching Pokémon.
  • Double the chance to get XL Candy.
  • Incense started during the event lasts for three hours.
  • Lure modules launched during the event last three hours.
  • Transactions during the hours of the event (and up to five hours after) cost 50% less Stardust.
  • An additional Special Trade can be created for the event.

Other Community Day Features

This Community Day, like most recently, will feature a post-event Raid celebration. Blue Raid eggs can be found in most gyms, and players can compete against additional Noibat in battles to try and get even more shinies.

Players can also purchase an event ticket for $1.00 USD (or the equivalent in their local currency). The Ticket grants access to some Special Research Tasks and additional Noibat encounters. This has become standard for most Community Day events and is only really worth it if players want additional encounters with the featured Pokémon.
