Pokemon Go October 2021 Community Day: Watch Out for Shiny Duskull

Thursday, September 9th, 2021 2:12 pm

Just in time for Halloween!

As spotted by CNET, Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, announced the featured Pokemon for Pokemon Go’s October 2021 Community Day event.

Pokemon Go Community Day for October 2021 will take place on October 9 from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. local time. During this event, Duskull will appear more frequently than normal in the wild, and you’ll have the chance to encounter Shiny Duskull. Plus, you’ll receive three times the normal amount of Stardust for each pocket monster you capture during this time, and Lure Modules and Incense will remain active for three hours when activated during this event.

Duskull is a Ghost-type Pokemon from the third generation of the Pokemon universe. In Pokemon Go, you can evolve Duskull into Dusclops using 25 Duskull Candy, and then evolve Dusclops into Dusknoir using 100 Duskull Candy and a Sinnoh Stone.

Each time you evolve Dusclops into Dusknoir during this event or during the two hours immediately following it, Dusknoir will learn the Charged Attack “Shadow Ball.”

Players will be able to earn up to four Sinnoh Stones for free during October’s Community Day event by completing a series of Timed Research tasks. In addition, players will be able to take Snapshots of Pokemon during Community Day to earn bonus encounters with Duskull, as well as collect a box of 30 free Ultra Balls from the game’s shop.

Finally, there will be two optional ways to spend real money during this event.

First, players will have the option to spend 1,280 PokeCoins on a box in the in-game shop containing 50 Ultra Balls, four Incense, four Star Pieces, and an Elite Charged TM.

Next, players will have the option to spend $1 on a ticket that will give them access to a Special Research storyline on Community Day called “Nothin’ Dull About Duskull.”

Remember, players aren’t required to spend real money to participate in these Community Day festivities. These premium options are there for players who are comfortable spending real money to unlock extra in-game content.
