Although Niantic has not yet announced it, the official Community Day Help Page has been updated to include details for the May Community Day. The event will run from 11 am to 5 pm local time on Sunday, May 24, 2020. The Pokémon presented will be Seedot, the Acorn Pokémon. Although Seedot is a type of pure grass, its final evolution, Shiftry is a Grass and Dark type which performs well in PVP Ultra and Great League battles. Shiftry has evolved the day the community will experience the exclusive movement, Bullet Seed. In addition, the community day will offer a triple capture bonus and the incense will be extended to three hours, allowing players to cover the entire event with only two incenses.

Although the bonus incense extension seems to suggest that this community day will also be a Stay at Home edition, we are still trying to confirm this. As a reminder, last month, Community Day: Stay At Home Edition with Abra worked very well by allowing players to purchase a special search, as well as livetweet to bring the community together. Although some areas are reopening and Niantic recently announced the latest PokéCoin pack, many players are still in place or on the sidelines, leaving much to hope for at least another Community Day Stay at Home Edition.
Are you thrilled to evolve a Shiftry with Bullet Seed during this month’s community day? What features would you like to see to make this event more accessible?

Niantic has confirmed that this community day will be a Play at Home edition with special searches and instant surprises.
