Magmar Community Day Bonuses

This months’ bonuses include the coveted 1/4 Hatch Distance!

During Community Day, 1/4 Hatch Distance will be active for the whole 6-hour window! We recommend stocking up on Star Pieces, Incubators, and be sure to set them, so you don’t forget them! (set the full day’s worth if you plan on playing that much. 

Below, you can find a handy Hatch-Distance-chart in which you can check the distance Eggs will take to hatch during CD, as well has some useful tips and tricks. Sit tight, cause your dust will skyrocket!

And, don’t forget, Magby (and its shiny) can be found in 2km Eggs during the event!

Hatch Tips & Tricks

  • Incubate your Eggs AFTER CD started.
  • Try to collect as many 10km Eggs as possible before CD to maximize your Stardust gain.
  • Run a Lucky Egg + Star Piece for the full 6 hours if possible.

3-HOUR INCENSE

Instead of Lure Modules, Incense will last for three hours during this month’s Community Day hours.

Make sure to activate your Incense after the event starts; otherwise, it will last for the regular 1 hour instead of 3 hours.

Exclusive Move: Thunderbolt

If you evolve your Magmar between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. (local time), Magmortar will learn the Community Day Exclusive Move Thunderbolt, an Electric-type Charge Attack! 

It is important to remember that you will need Sinnoh Stones in order to evolve Magmar into Magmortar. No need to stress or cause any static! PGO is giving you some additional opportunities to snag some, via Timed Research, during the event! 

Note: You’ll be able to obtain the Exclusive Move up to 2 hours after boosted spawns end

Below, you can find Thunderbolt stats, as well as a brief analysis of how Thunderbolt Magmortar performs in both PvE and PvP.

Thunderbolt PvE Analysis

Magmortar with Thunderbolt in PvE, is pretty much a non-starter. Fire Blast will always be the Charge Move of choice in Raids because of STAB, and if you need a Fire-type move, there are far better options available. You could use a double moved Thunderbolt Magmortar in a TGR battle should you go up against a lineup week to Electric- and Fire-types, but otherwise, it is useless in PvE.

Thunderbolt PvP Analysis

RANK #1 MAGMAR GREAT LEAGUE
CP: 1498

Magmar Rank 1 Catch CP

Thunderbolt Magmortar in PvP is extremely interesting. While the preferred Charged Move is still Fire Punch, pairing it with Thunderbolt gives Magmortar something is has been lacking until now, coverage. Thunderbolt will not be an everyday use type of move, however, as it will mainly see use as a niche play in a specialized Cup.

PARTING THOUGHT

Magmar is the second of TWO Community Days happening during the month of November! While neither has been/will be earth shattering in terms of excitement or even usefulness, they have been a fantastic opportunity to gain dust, XP, and stock up on some shinies you may or may not have had before. Best of luck, Trainers, and see you in December!
