Porygon Community Day is happening this Sunday, September 20th from 11 AM to 5 PM local time. With this guide, Pokémon GO trainers can optimize on this event, catch a ton of Shiny Porygon, and rake in the XP.
First, a few details of Porygon Community Day that cannot be forgotten. Before getting out there and catching all of the wild Porygon you can, take care of this:
Now, as far as catching wild Porygon, here’s what you’re going to want to do. Before the event starts, clear your storage of items you’re not going to be using: Razz Berries, Nanab Berries, and the less effective potions. Take advantage of this time before Porygon spawns flood in to spin as many stops as possible and stack up on Balls, with a major focus on Ultra Balls. If you’re playing the event at home, it’s important to stock up like this because Niantic no longer has your Buddy bringing you Pokéballs during Community Day.
Trainers playing from home on Incense will have no problem getting enough Shiny Porygon to clog their storage. However, if you’re a hardcore trainer looking to hunt down the best IVs, the best way to catch as many Pokémon as possibe during Porygon Community Day will be in a place with many concentrated Pokéstops and Gyms. Just remember to mask up and be safe.
Lastly, be sure to evolve Porygon up to Porygon2 and, ultimately, Porygon-Z before the event ends. Every Porygon-Z evolved during the event hours, and up to two hours after, will have the special move Tri Attack that has a 50% chance to lower the opponent’s Attack and Defense during PVP battles. Our tip here is to set an alarm to do this evolution, as there’s nothing worse than realizing you’re just a few minutes too late.
Happy hunting, fellow trainers. This may be the most hype for a Community Day since 2019, so get out there and have fun.
