The next Pokémon Go Community Day will feature Mareep on April 15


Niantic has announced the next Pokémon Go Community Day event hot on the heels of the Bulbasaur day.

On April 15, players from around the world can head to their local community parks to find a special Mareep. This Mareep will know a special unannounced move that cannot be obtained by normal methods.

As well as the Mareep, Egg Hatching distance will be cut by a quarter, a good incentive to get out there and keep exploring even if you catch a Mareep early. Lures will also last for three hours instead of the usual one hour.

The Mareep will only be available from 10am till 1pm GMT time, giving trainers only three hours to capture as many as they can.

With an abundance of Mareeps available, it is the perfect oppurtunity for trainers to try and get themselves an Ampharos, one of the rarest and strongest Electric-type Pokémon in the game. In order to get the Pokémon, players will need to have 25 Mareep Candy to evolve it into a Flaffy and then another 100 more Mareep Candy to evolve to Flaffy into an Ampharos.
