The two-day Pokemon GO Community Day extravaganza has begun, bringing back not only all the Pokemon from this year’s Community Days but last year’s as well, giving you the best opportunity yet to snag an absolute ton of creatures with their special moves. And, as has become the custom this year, we’ve also got a $.99 special research in the shop, and it’s a good one.

I haven’t had time to make it through all the steps yet due to having just woken up, but as usual our international community members—and dataminers—have helped shed some light on the situation. So with credit to Leekduck and the Silph Road subreddit, here are the steps and rewards with some valuable elite TMs in there:

Step 1:

  • Catch 15 Piplup: 10 Pokeballs
  • Catch 15 Rhyhorn: 10 Razzberries
  • Catch 15 Abra: 1500 XP
  • Step Rewards: 10 Pinap berries, 1 Sinnoh Stone, 200 Stardust

Step 2:

  • Catch 15 Seedot: 10 Ultra Balls
  • Catch 15 Weedle: 1500 XP
  • Catch 15 Gastly: 1500 Stardust


Step Rewards: 1 Incense, 1 Poffin, 2000 Stardust

Step 3:

  • Catch 15 Magikarp: 10 Pinap Berries
  • Catch 15 Porygon: 1 Sinnoh Stone
  • Catch 15 Charmander: 1 Elite Fast TM
  • Step rewards: 1 Upgrade, 1 Rocket Radar, 200 Stardust

Step 4:

  • Catch 15 Electabuzz: 1 Sinnoh Stone
  • Catch 15 Magmar: 1 Sinnoh Stone
  • Catch 15 Pokemon: 1 Elite Charged TM
  • Step Rewards: 3 Rare Candy, 1500 XP, 200 Stardust

A pretty good haul! The $.99 is usually worth it for the regular premium rewards like a Rocket Radar, a Poffin and some Rare Candy, but it’s those Elite TMs that really put it over the top. These are typically difficult to acquire at regular times, and players will buy them even in much more expensive bundles. If you’re the type that’s trying to put together some superpowered Pokemon with rare moves, this is a mission that you’re definitely going to want to buy, particularly since you’ve got plenty of time to get this one done over the course of two days.

It’s a fun one, the December Community Day, and a particularly strange one here in 2020. Reflect back on a wild year, just one day after the FD formally approved the first COVID-19 vaccine. May next year be less awful.
