This past weekend Trainers around the world celebrated the second Pokémon GO Community Day with Dratini as the main attraction. Niantic already announced the next event, as well as the release of a special Pikachu to celebrate Pokémon GO Day.

March Pokémon GO Community Day

  • Date: Sunday, 25 March 2018
  • Time: 11 am to 2 pm South African time
  • Featured Pokémon: Bulbasaur (grass-type Pokémon)
  • Exclusive move: TBA
  • Bonus 1: Triple the amount of XP earned

The Pokémon GO Company also released the global stats for the first two Community Day events. In January Team Mystic took first place, with Team Valor a close second, especially for Trainers in Asia. The February event placed Team Mystic as the clear winner, with only Australian Trainers focusing on Team Valor.


Today is Pokémon GO Day, and to celebrate Niantic is again releasing the festive Pikachu with its party hat.

Pokémon GO Day

  • Period: Catch the special Pikachu until February 28
  • Special Move: Present
  • Bonus: Earn triple the amount of Stardust for each special Pikachu you catch

In other Pokémon GO news; don't forget that you can catch Legendary Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon alongside Rayquaza in Raid battles until March 5. We also want to remind South African Trainers to join The Silph League Community before the March event. It will make it easier for you to connect with fellow Trainers in your city.
