     - - Fixed: Crystal met time of day is now checked correctly.
     - - Fixed: B2W2 special move tutors are no longer randomly permitted (offset was being read incorrectly). Thanks @srwawin!

     - Fixed: Gen4 Coin case max now uses the correct maximum value. Thanks smileynation!

    Pokémon GO’s third Community Day will launch this coming weekend bringing egg bonuses, Lure Module bonuses, shiny Pokémon and an exciting Dragon-type move.

    On Sunday, April 15, Community Day is set to begin globally at 2 PM ET and end at 5 PM ET.  That’s, 11 AM - 2 PM PT, 10 AM - 1 PM UTC, and 12PM - 3 PM JST.  These events typically last for three hours, this event is no exception!

    This month’s featured Pokémon is Mareep, the wool Pokémon!  Mareep will be widely available to catch this weekend, including its shiny form.  This event gives Trainers the perfect opportunity to stock up on Mareep Candy in order to obtain Ampharos! Pay attention when evolving your Flaaffy into a Ampharos though, because you will notice your new Pokémon will automatically learn the Dragon-Type attack, Dragon Pulse. This evolution perk is only effective durning April’s Community Day.

    Aside from the featured Pokémon Mareep, Trainers will also get an extended Lure Module time of three hours, and eggs will only take one quarter of the distance to hatch.

    Have fun and be safe this Community Day!

    Mareep, the wool Pokémon!
    If static electricity builds in its body, its fleece doubles in volume. Touching it will shock you.


    The Mythical Pokémonzeraora.pngZeraora has been revealed today!
    It will star along sidelugia.pngLugia in the upcoming movie, Pokémon Movie 21: Everyone's Story [みんなの物語].

    Together with the new Ultra Beasts;poipole.pngPoipole,naganadel.pngNaganadel,stakataka.pngStakataka and blacephalon.pngBlacephalon, this was the first instance that any Pokémon (excluding new forms) were added into the roster mid-generation. Being a Mythical Pokémon, it also bears the distinction of being the first Mythical to be added mid-generation.
    As such, this Pokémon will be available on Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon (and not Pokémon Sun & Moon).

    We expect to see distribution details soon, regarding this Pokémon.

    Game Play:



    Given how Mythicals were distributed previously, I expect its Japanese release to be done in-conjunction with some promotion relating to the Movie 21: either via in-cinema local wireless distribution, or pre-order tickets serial code.
