Dratini Community Day Classic in November 5, 2022

Dratini hasn’t been featured on Community Day since 2018, but here is The Dratini Community Day Classic! The incredibly popular Gen 1 Dragon-type is returning courtesy to November’s Community Day Classic event. As usual, the Community Day Classic event will provide players with a limited number of hours to experience enhanced spawning, intriguing features, and maybe some dazzling encounters.

Dratini’s first Community Day was very popular due to the ability to capture Dragon-type creatures. That might be a terrific motivation again this weekend, since several players are still chasing Platinum Medals. Even if that’s not the case, the featured Pokemon in this event, paired with the Stardust bonus, should make this a highly popular event in Pokemon GO this Saturday afternoon.

Trainers do not need to perform a lot of prep work before Community Day Classic activities, but knowing the individual benefits may be extremely beneficial in determining priorities for the short time celebrations. Trainers should evaluate each benefit as they plan their afternoons and determine how they will celebrate Dratini’s happy day.

Start and End Times

From 2:00pm to 5:00pm local time

Beginning in February 2019, Community Day activities will always take place on local time, regardless of where you play. This alters somewhat during the winter months since time is divided between hemispheres rather than time zones.

Special Move

Evolve Dragonair (Dratini’s Evolution) during the event or up to two hours afterwards to get a Dragonite that understands the Charged Attack Draco Meteor. If you want to obtain the exclusive move, be sure you develop inside the current time frame (within two hours of the event concluding).

Players who want to access a Special Research Story on the Dratini Community Day Classic can purchase an event ticket for $1 (or local currency equivalent) from the in-game Shop.

This Special Research Story must be completed during the Community Day Classic to get all of the rewards.

Can Dratini Be Shiny in Pokemon GO?

You can catch a shiny version of Dratini in Pokemon GO and the best time to catch one is the Dratini Community Day Classic. This is because of the sheer amount of Dratini spawning in the wild.

Shiny Dratini is pink instead of light blue and can be evolved into a pink shiny Dragonair and then shiny Dragonite, which is green instead of orange.

In other news, remember to participate in all of the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours in November 2022. Some of them have really intriguing Pokemon in them!

Shiny Variant

Niantic seldom confirms the shiny possibility until after the event has begun, so keep a watch out for shiny Dratini while hunting. They’ve appeared at every previous Community Day and Community Day Classic event, and we fully anticipate to see them again this month.

That should cover all players need to know about Dratini’s Community Day event, which takes place in just a few days, so make any necessary changes to in-game inventory and storage space immediately.

Keep an eye out for additional Pokemon GO strategy guides, news, and updates in the near future. Until then, trainers, best of luck!
