Get set for Bounsweet.

The next Pokémon GO Community Day will feature Bounsweet. This will provide Pokémon GO Trainers a chance to grab a Shiny Bounsweet and get a Tsareena with exclusive move, High Jump Kick.

Bounsweet Community Day takes place Sunday, May 19 from 1400-1700 local time.

This might not be the most hyped Pokémon GO Community Day of all time. However, with the Egg Hatch Distance bonus, you can farm a lot of Stardust if you stack 12k and 10k Eggs in advance. So, regardless of the featured 'Mon this is a great chance to meet up with your friends and play some Pokémon GO.

During the event times, Bounsweet will be appearing much more frequently in the wild. You'll also have a increased chance of catching a Shiny Bounsweet.

There will also be a featured move for evolving Bounsweet. Any Steenee evolved into Tsareena during Bounsweet Pokémon GO Community Day will learn High Jump Kick, a Fighting-type move. If you have any Tsareena already, the only way they can learn this move is through an Elite TM.

Shiny Bounsweet, Shiny Steenee and Shiny Tsareena

Here is the regular and shiny versions of the family of Pokémon featured this Community Day.


The odds of encountering a shiny Bounsweet is about 1 in 25 during this Bounsweet Pokémon GO Community Day.

Tsareena Best Pokémon GO Moveset

Bounsweet Community Day will add High Jump Kick as a Fast Attack for Tsareena. This move is a new typing for Tsareena, with it having no Fighting-type moves yet.

However, Tsareena isn't the best Pokémon in the Grass-type category and isn't a Fighting-type. It is yet to be seen just how impactful this move will be.

The best moveset for Tsareena is:

  • Magical Leaf
  • Grass Knot
  • Triple Axel

Bounsweet Community Day: Pokémon GO Tips and Tricks

Now, Bounsweet might not be the most exciting Pokémon for a Community Day in GO history, but there are always good Pokémon GO Community Day bonuses.

1/4 Egg Hatch Distance is great if you have 12km (or even 10km) Eggs ready. A fully stacked Egg Box, with a Star Piece can yield you well over 100k Stardust. Add on the Stardust from all the Bounsweet you will catch during that half hour and you're sitting pretty.

We also have extra Candy and Candy XL for catching Pokémon during this event. But, you can boost that up even further by using a Grass-type Mega Level 3 Mega Pokémon.

Here are the Pokémon you can Mega Evolve to get extra Candy, Candy XL and XP for catching Bounsweet:

  • Groudon
  • Venusaur
  • Sceptile
  • Abomasnow

Don't forget some other easy tips:

  • Don't catch Pokémon before the event starts. These Pokémon can turn into Bounsweet.
  • Spin as many Pokéstops as possible, to get event specific Field Research as well as extra resources.
  • Don't activate Lures' or Incense till the event starts to get the extra time.
  • Have fun!
