Pokémon GO’s April Community Day Features Abra and Counter

Catch a lot of Abra during this month’s Community Day event, and get Alakazam that know Counter.

Pokémon GO's April Community Day will feature the Psychic-type Pokémon Abra. This event starring the elusive Psi Pokémon will take place Saturday, April 25, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in your local time zone—three hours longer than a usual Community Day!

Abra will show up in the wild much more frequently during the Community Day hours, and there's a better chance that Abra you encounter will be Shiny. Plus, if you evolve Abra into Alakazam during the event or up to two hours afterward, the Alakazam will know Counter, an attack that it normally can't learn.

If you have a Buddy Pokémon that has a Buddy Level of Great Buddy or higher, it'll bring you helpful items throughout the event, such as Poké Balls. And if you want to stock up on more supplies, there'll be a special April Community Day bundle in the in-game shop featuring an Elite Charged TM, 30 Ultra Balls, three Super Incubators, and three Incense for 1,280 PokéCoins. This bundle will be a one-time purchase only.

Additionally, Incense activated during the event will last three hours, and you'll receive three times the usual Catch Stardust.

This month, there's also a new twist to the Community Day experience. A Community Day–exclusive Special Research story titled Investigating Illusions can be unlocked in your game for US$1 (or the equivalent in your local currency). Complete it to earn 13,000 Stardust, a Poffin, a Rocket Radar, and other rewards. Stay tuned for when tickets go live!

Have fun looking for Abra on Community Day, Trainers!
