Pokemon Go May 2024 Community Day: Shiny Bounsweet, Bonuses, And More

Pokemon Go‘s May Community Day has arrived. The event takes place today and gives players more chances to catch the adorable grass-type Pokemon Bounsweet. On top of that, a few other in-game bonuses will also be available for the duration of the event, including decreased egg hatching time and extra Candy for catching Pokemon.

To help you prepare, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about Pokemon Go’s May 2024 Community Day event below.

May 2024 Community Day Start Time

Pokemon Go’s May Community Day takes place Sunday, May 19. The event proper runs from 2 to 5 PM local time, with additional four-star raids occurring afterward from 5 to 10 PM local time.

May’s Featured Pokemon: Bounsweet

The star of this month’s Community Day is Bounsweet, a grass-type fruit Pokemon originally introduced in Pokemon Sun and Moon. During the event hours, Bounsweet will spawn in the wild more frequently, giving you more opportunities to catch them and earn Bounsweet Candy.

On top of that, you’ll have a higher chance of encountering a Shiny Bounsweet during the event. This special variant has a purple stem and yellow bottom. You’ll increase your chances of finding a Shiny Bounsweet by using Incense and placing Lure Modules in PokeStops.

May’s Featured Attack: High Jump Kick

Bounsweet’s final form, Tsareena, will be able to learn a special attack during May’s Community Day. Each Steenee you evolve between 2 and 10 PM local time on the day of the event will learn High Jump Kick upon evolving into Tsareena.

High Jump Kick is a high-risk, high-reward fighting-type charged attack. In PvP battles, it boasts 110 power, but has a chance of greatly lowering your own defense stat. The move has 90 power in Gym and Raid Battles.


In addition to increased Bounsweet spawns, numerous other in-game bonuses will be active throughout May’s Community Day. You’ll earn double the usual amount of Candy each time you catch a Pokemon during the event, and players who are level 31 or higher will be twice as likely to receive Candy XL.

Additionally, any Pokemon eggs placed inside an incubator during the event will hatch at a quarter of the walking distance they typically require. Lure Modules and Incense will also last for three hours, while trades will cost half as much Stardust as usual.

Research Tasks

On top of the aforementioned bonuses, a variety of Community Day-themed Field Research tasks will be available during the event. As you catch Bounsweet and complete these tasks, you’ll earn various rewards including Stardust, Great Balls, and extra Bounsweet encounters.

Pokemon Go will also be selling a paid Special Research story during the event that offers additional tasks to complete and rewards to earn. You can purchase a ticket to access this Special Research for $1 USD through the in-game item shop.

Extra Raids

As mentioned, Pokemon Go will continue hosting special bonus raids immediately following May’s Community Day. From 5 to 10 PM local time, Bounsweet’s evolved form Steenee will appear in Gyms as a four-star raid boss. You can only participate in these Raids in-person using regular or Premium Raid Passes. You can read more about the event on the official Pokemon Go website.

Community Day isn’t the only event happening in Pokemon Go this week. The mobile game is also holding a Catching Wonders event until May 19, which includes a free Masterwork Research that will reward you with a Master Ball and other prizes upon completion. Later this month, Pokemon Go will cap off its current season with an Ultra Space Wonders event, which introduces two new Ultra Beasts to the game and marks your first chance to evolve Poipole into Naganadel.
