Egg Hatching Distance Chart

Note: As Observed in Mareep Community Day, Any egg put in an incubator before the event starts will NOT receive the bonus!

Make sure you start the incubation after the event starts.


The Reduction in Egg hatching is nice and it’s worth taking advantage of. If you’re looking to hatch a lot of eggs then certainly go for running nine incubators. However, take note the hatching animation will cut into your catching time.

IV Chart

In addition to the above chart, we think this Squirtle CP is Helpful which shows the perfect IV Squirle for each level.

Best Squirtle Search Trick

Caught too many Squirtles? Now finding the best IV Squirtle in the inventory to evolve would be too difficult and time-consuming, instead, we can use a search string to find the best. Generate a search string of Minimum 90% IV and paste it in the search bar to filter out the best Larvitar for you.

You can even use the keyboard search replacement trick to make it easier, or either you can generate search strings of your need and store it in some Google Keep or Note and use it find the best ones.

Note: This trick won’t work if you power up your Pokemon

Here’s a search string you can use to find Perfect IV Larvitar in your Pokémon storage:

Example: Using Eevee Perfect IV Search String

Catching Tips

As observed in the Previous community days the base capture rate is changed during community days and made easy to catch, using a Razz Berry and the Great ball would be sufficient to catch in a single throw.

Many trainers noticed that Go-tcha Auto Catch and Pokemon Go Plus are much helpful during community day in the 3 hours of timeframe!

Hydro Cannon Move Stats

Hydro Cannon is a Water-type charged move

Damage starts500ms
Damage end1600ms
Energy Delta-50

Hydro Cannon will be a 2 charge bar and deal 47.37 DPS!

This is the FASTEST active charged attack in the game now.

For reference, Stone Edge held the title before, at 700 ms. Hydro Pump hits at 900 ms. Hydro Cannon will be hard to dodge. This is GOOD.

General Tips and Notes 

Burn Through That Incense!

Image result for Incense Pokemon go

Community Day is the perfect time to dust off those incense and use them! Incense spawns will be mostly Larvitar (based on the last community day).

Stock Up

Keep a healthy supply of Poke Balls and berries so you don’t have to worry about running out.

Get your Medal

If you haven’t gotten your Water medal yet, this is a good opportunity to earn it.

Field Research Task (?)

Look out for a possible Field Research Task related to catching Squirtle

Watch the Time 

Set a timer for 15 Minutes before the event ends so you can sort out and evolve for the Exclusive Move (Make sure you use the above search string to search faster)

Community Bundle

Look out for a Bundle in the in-game shop for items that will contain helpful items for Community Day.
