Bonus April Community Day – Mudkip Community Flashback!

Hey, Trainers! Welcome to April, Fools!

Just kidding! The only fools around here are those who don’t take this chance to snag Shiny Mudkip during this Community Day Classic! (I only got three during the first go-around for this Pokemon so I’m happy to try my hand at snagging some extras.)

While I was psyched during the introduction of Community Day Classic because I thought they’d be going in order and we’d get another Charmander Community Day, Mudkip is another one I like a lot and purple Swampert definitely has a special place in my heart. Plus, Mudkip is the first ever Pokemon that I recall being Meme’d back in the day with the ‘I herd u like Mudkip’ bit. Funny stuff!

The date for this bonus community day is Sunday, the 1th of April, 2:00pm till 5:00pm local times. I’m not super excited that Niantic is returning the window to a three hour one, nor am I super happy that it’s in the afternoon rather than the morning… but I’ll live. They put in a lot of work to check data and see when and how long people are engaging with the event and I can respect that, but I will miss the additional flexibility afforded by a longer window.


Bonuses we can expect are:

  • During the event you will gain a 3× Catch XP bonus.
  • Incense and Lure Modules launched during Event times will last 3 hours.
  • Photobombs! 5 would be my guess.
  • For $1 or your local equivalent, you’ll get access to a Special Research story.
  • 30 Ultra Balls will be yours for free in the Shop.
  • For 850 Pokecoins you can grab an Event Bundle containing 15 Ultra Balls, 15 Pinap Berries, 1 Elite Fast TM, and 1 Remote Raid Pass. I appreciate the price drop, especially considering the dropped number of Ultra Balls.
  • Herds of Mudkip will be running wild all over the map with an increased chance of netting a shiny!
  • Evolve them into Swampert between 2:00pm and 7:00pm and you’ll get the Returning Community Day Attack – Hydro Cannon.
  • I’ve already done a spotlight on Mudkip in 2019, when we had a prior Mudkip Community day. You can check out that spotlight Here!

    Of course, the main update to the above information is Swamperts new stats since the re-balancing and level cap increase. Here’s what you’re looking at:

    Max CP: 3362
    Att: 208
    Def: 175
    Sta: 225

    Oh! And Mega Evolution which may be a thing for this Pokemon some time soon! We can hope.

    As always, Trainers, I wish you the absolute best of luck in scooping up some purple amphibians! Stay safe out there and have fun!
