Alolan Geodude, the Rock/Electric-type Pokémon of the seventh generation (Alola), will be in the spotlight during Community Day in May 2022. Niantic has confirmed the date, times, bonuses and features for the fifth Community Day of the year. Much like last month’s Community Day with Stufful, this Community Day will last a total of three hours. However, it will be much earlier than April. Let’s take a look at all the details.
Date, time and features of May Community Day – Alolan Geodude in Pokémon Go.
May 2022 Community Day will be held on May 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time, where the Alola Geodude will be the featured Pokémon. If lucky, players will be able to find the Pokémon Rock in its shiny form.
During the duration of Pokémon Go’s May Community Day, we may encounter the Alola Geodude in the wild with very high frequency. Additionally, as with previous Community Days, for $1 it will be possible to access the Alolan Geodude Community Day exclusive Special Research Story, A Rocky Road. Along with this, Niantic also announced that it would be possible to gift tickets for the Community Day Special Research to a friend. Now, next to the Buy option, a Gift button will appear. For now, we’ll have to stay tuned when Ninantic puts those tickets on sale.
Alolan Golem will learn (and debut) Fast Attack Rollout
If you evolve your Alolan Geodude into an Alolan Golem during the event, or up to two hours after the event ends (4:00 p.m. local time), it will learn Quick Attack Deployment. This charged attack deals 4 potency damage in trainer battles, while in gyms and raids it will have 14 potency damage. Additionally, it will generate energy quickly during fights.
Alolan Geodude evolves with 25 Candy to Alolan Graveler, and with 100 Candy or by trade to Alolan Golem.
