Pokemon Go May 2023 Community Day Details

Pokemon Go Fennekin May 2023 Community Day

The May 2023 Pokemon Go Community Day is finally upon us. While the temperatures are rising in the Northern Hemisphere, a little fox friend is set to ignite May’s community day. Although many trainers are still angry about the increase in remote raid passes, some have vowed to only play on the community days. Last month, trainers had the chance to catch Togetic and Swinub for the April 2023 Pokemon Go Community Days. At the moment, only one community day has been announced for May, but it has a lot of trainers excited. The May 2023 Pokemon Go Community Day Pokemon is Fennekin, the Firefox Pokemon.

The Fennekin Community Day will take place on May 21st, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. During this time, the spawn rate of Fennekin will drastically increase; this also includes the spawn rate of Shiny Fennekin that will be available.

Below are the event’s details

  • Evolve Braixen (Fennekin’s Evolution) during the event or up to five hours afterward to get a Delphox that knows the Charged Attack Blast Burn.
  • While Braixen evolved into Delphox during the event will know Blast Burn, starting at the beginning of the event, Delphox will be able to learn the Charged Attack Mystical Fire. Delphox will still be able to learn Mystical Fire after the conclusion of the event.

Event Bonuses

  • 3× Stardust for catching Pokémon.
  • 2× Candy for catching Pokémon.
  • 2× chance for Trainers level 31 and up to receive Candy XL from catching Pokémon.
  • Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours.
  • Incense (excluding Daily Adventure Incense) activated during the event will last for three hours.
  • Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise!
  • Trades made during the event will require 50% less Stardust.*
  • One additional Special Trade can be made for a maximum of two for the day.

These bonuses will be active from 2 PM local time to 10 PM local time.  From 5 PM to 10 PM local time, Bonus Raid Battles will appear; once these four-star raids are defeated more Fennekin will spawn around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes! Only regular or premium raid passes can be used on the 4-star Braxien raid.
