Pokemon Go Community Day is going live this Sunday morning, bringing along an opportunity to catch a Mareep Pokemon. This will be the fourth Community Day. Niantic has been stressing on community days more and more in Pokemon Go as of late, with a garbage cleaning drive on Earth day.
The participating trainers were rewarded for their efforts and the number of people joining decided the reward quality. Niantic touts this as a good opportunity for Pokemon Go players to come together and celebrate the game’s massive success, for more than most players the rare Pokemon Mareep will be the main attraction.
During this community event, trainers should find a sufficient number of Mareep spawning in parks. This is supposed be the first Community day in Pokemon Go event not to feature a Gen 1 Kanto region Pokemon as the special chosen Pokemon.For UK based players, today’s Community Day event is scheduled to begin at 10am in the UK lasting until 1pm in the afternoon.
So even if you are not a people person and don’t want to get into a group, there will still be enough opportunities for you to get some unique Pokemon in Pokemon Go during this community event.
For the third Community Event, Bulbasaur will be the star in the parks, and if you can evolve a Bulbasaur into a Venusaur during the event, it will learn Frenzy Plant, a two-bar 100 power charged move.
Pokemon GO: Shiny Mareep?
A recent leak confirms that a Shiny Mareep will be up for grabs. And if you need further proof, the previous events should more than verify this claim. Players who have been datamining have noticed that the Shiny Mareep has been added and as such you should be able to claim one during this event.

The official word from Niantic on the latest Pokemon Go community event:
The appearance of the Mythical Pokémon Mew has attracted Pokémon that were originally discovered in the Kanto region,” says Niantic on its blog. These classic Pokémon will be seen more frequently starting April 10 at 1 P.M. PDT, so you’ll have the perfect opportunity to earn a gold Kanto medal and even complete your Kanto Pokédex!
What’s more, certain Pokémon such as Aerodactyl and Snorlax will be featured in Raid Battles across the world. Keep an eye out for one you haven’t encountered yet!
As you encounter and catch more Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region, all actions will be rewarded with double Candy. So, not only will you be able to catch Pokémon you might not frequently see, but you may also get the chance to register their evolved forms in your Pokédex as well. During this event, there will also be special boxes containing Raid Passes! These boxes will give you an opportunity to challenge many powerful Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region.
