All you need to know

Get ready for the new Pokémon GO Community Day Classic, featuring Mudkip!

This month of April marks not one, but TWO Pokemon GO Community Days! The first will be on April 10, which is a Community Day Classic with Mudkip!

In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the Mudkip Community Day Classic. That’s all you need to know, including event bonuses, rewards, and special moves!

Mudkip has been a fan-favorite Water-type Pokemon ever since it was first introduced in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. It evolves into Marshtomp with 25 Mudkip candies, then into Swampert with 100 Mudkip candies.

Swampert is an extremely powerful Water/Ground Pokémon with excellent stats. That’s why if you’re interested in combat, you don’t want to miss Mudkip Community Day!

But is Swampert on the best Pokemon GO team for April 2022?

Mudkip Community Day Classic starts on April 10. It takes place between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. local time.

During this period, the following bonuses will be active:

  • Increased Mudkip spawns
  • Shiny Mudkip Luck
  • Incense and Lure Mods will last 3 hours
  • 3x Catch XP
  • Chance for a Mudkip Photobomb when taking photos of your Pokemon

Teach Your Swampert Hydraulic Cannon

Swampert, the latest evolution of Mudkip, can learn the powerful Water-type move Hydro Cannon. Mudkip Community Day is the perfect opportunity to learn the most powerful Water-type move in the game!

Any Marshtomp that evolves into Swampert between 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. will learn the Hydro Cannon charged move. This move makes Swampert an even more powerful force and a must-have for any trainer!
