Timed Research

Community Day falls on April 23 during Sustainability Week and lasts from 10am to 8pm local time.

For every player that walks at least 5 kilometers during Community Day, Niantic states that they will plant a tree.

Trainers will have the ability to catch both of these Pokémon in the Wild and hatch them from 7-kilometer Eggs. Cherubi will also be available to encounter from Lures and Field Research Tasks.
