Here’s all about the Bounsweet Community Day in Pokemon Go, including the start date and time, bonuses, shiny chances, featured move, and more.

Community Day is a fan-favorite Pokemon Go event that hosts boosted spawns of a certain Pokemon with increased shiny rates and a new exclusive move to boot. The May 2024 Community Day features the Fruit Pokemon: Bounsweet.

So, here’s all you need to know about the Bounsweet Community Day, including the event’s date and time, featured move, shiny chances, and more.

Pokemon Go Bounsweet Community Day date & time

The Pokemon Go Bounsweet Community Day event occurs on Sunday, May 19, 2024, from 2 PM to 5 PM (local time).

Can Bounsweet be shiny on Pokemon Go Community Day?

Yes, shiny Bounsweet will be available in Pokemon Go during its Community Day.

The odds of encountering shiny Pokemon during the event will be boosted to 1 in 25 or a 4% chance.

Pokemon Go players that evolve Steenee (Bounsweet’s Evolution) during the May 2024 Community Day or up to five hours afterward will get a Tsareena that knows the Charged Attack High Jump Kick.

This Fighting-type attack boasts 110 power in Trainer battles with a chance to greatly decrease the user’s Defense. In Gyms and Raids, it has 90 power.

Pokemon Go Bounsweet Community Day bonus Raids

After the May 2024 Community Day event ends, Pokemon Go players can take on special four-star Raid Battles featuring Steenee. Winning one of these Raids will cause more Bounsweet to appear around the Gym that hosted the Raid for the next 30 minutes. Shiny spawns will also be boosted in this case.

It’s worth noting that trainers can only join the Steenee 4-Star Raids using Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used in this case.

Pokemon Go Bounsweet Community Day Research

The Bounsweet Community Day event features different Field Research tasks for Pokemon Go players to get additional Stardust, Great Balls, encounters with Bounsweet, and more.

On the other hand, trainers can purchase a Special Research story for US$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency). We’ll make sure to update this section once the Bounsweet Community Day-exclusive Special Research tasks and rewards are officially revealed.

You should keep in mind that tickets are non-refundable and that this Special Research will not include an in-game medal.

How to prepare for Bounsweet Community Day in Pokemon Go

Here are some useful tips to help you prepare for the Bounsweet Community Day in Pokemon Go:

  • You’ll need a lot of Poke Balls to catch as many of the featured Pokemon as you can.
  • Berries are useful to catch Pokemon more effectively or increase the number of Candy obtained.
  • Make sure you have enough space in your Pokemon Storage Box.
  • Save Lure Modules and Incense for the Community Day since they usually last longer during the event.
  • You can also use the PokeCoins you’ve earned during the week to spend on other useful items, like Lucky Eggs for more XP or Star Pieces for bonus Stardust.

Keep in mind that the bonuses for the event and the effects of these items stack, so be sure to take advantage of that. And that’s all you need to know about Bounsweet Community Day in Pokemon Go.
