What is the Pokemon Go May 2020 Community Day date and what will be the featured Pokemon? Niantic has announced May 17, 2020 will be May’s Community Day featuring Carvanha. With how the Coronavirus Crisis has changed the game from playing outside to playing at home, instead of a 3-hour Community Day, we now get a 6-hour Incense Community Day (where each Incense lasts 3 hours) featuring Water- and Dark-type Pokemon!

On Sunday, May 17, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, you can enjoy an Incense Day event featuring Water-type Pokémon and Dark-type Pokémon—notably Carvanha! During this time, Incense will attract more Carvanha, and you could even encounter a Shiny one if you’re lucky! An event-exclusive 1 PokéCoin bundle featuring three Incense will also be available to pick up in the shop.
In addition to Carvanha, Pokémon of different types will be attracted by Incense. The type of Pokémon attracted by Incense will shuffle every hour between Water and Dark. During hours that feature Water-type Pokémon, you might encounter Horsea, Tympole, and more! If luck is on your side, Alomomola might appear. When Dark-type Pokémon are attracted by your Incense, you might find Murkrow, Sableye, and others. If you’re incredibly lucky, you could encounter Scraggy.
Nice to see the Go Battle League-exclusive reward Pokemon, Scraggy, can soon be caught in the wild!
