Gaming / Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord / Forums / Telegram Community Days since January 2018 have been a Pokémon GO tradition. Niantic, however, has made some changes over the years and mentioned that it was looking into implementing others. Just weeks ago, the developer experimented with a classic version of the event, which would last 3 hours, and apparently the results led to a new modification that left fans unhappy. Almost a year and a half after the debut of Pokémon GO, Niantic announced Community Days in 2018, events that would allow players to catch a bunch of the featured species for 3 hours. In April 2020, due to the pandemic, Niantic extended the Community Days hours from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. These changes had remained until last March Community Day.

Pokémon GO Community Days will be shorter
Unfortunately, today Niantic reported that starting next April Community Day, starring the Tantrum Pokémon, these events will last half as long: 3 hours, just as long as they used to last. Niantic decided that the ideal time would be the second half of the previous time, so April Community Day will be held from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (local time). In the official statement, Niantic explains that although the Community Days period was previously 6 hours, users did not play all the time; in fact, only 5% of users participated for more than 3 hours. In addition to this, Niantic mentions that user feedback around the January 2022 Classic Community Day (3 hours) was largely positive because it was mentioned that it was more common to find more people from the community playing. the title if the event lasted less. Thus, Niantic decided to return to the original duration of 3 hours, in order for more players to meet in person, but anticipated that some event bonuses will not go away completely, but will add some bonuses to “collect the same amount of resources [que se recolectaban en los eventos de 6 horas] in half the time.”
In case you missed it: Tapu Lele has already debuted in Pokémon GO.
Why are fans not happy with this change in Pokémon GO?
As usual, Niantic’s decisions did not please all fans. Although the excitement of seeing an entirely new Pokémon debut in the title at the same time as its shiny version was profuse, there were plenty of others who weren’t happy about the new time slot.
Back to 3 hours. why? This company just makes no sense.— Tom (@tomcarlin) March 23, 2022
They come back at 3 o’clock 😔- Roberto (@ober_mza) March 23, 2022
We remind you that Niantic announced a few days ago that the effectiveness of Incense when stationary would drop, which for many ruined the March Community Day (of 6 hours), since the Pokémon appeared with droppers, without mentioning the shiny versions. Collectively, then, it will make capturing shinies from home virtually impossible for the next 3-hour Community Days. That said, Niantic would be forcing players to go out if they want to find the featured creature, especially its shiny version. Once again, and as always happens in the publications that Niantic makes, the players took the opportunity to demand that he return the changes to Incense and that he return to the effectiveness of months ago.

I thought the same… Until I saw that it will only be Community Dar for 3 hours… From 2pm to 5pm 😑— root@WaKoN:~# (@wakon) March 23, 2022
I join your reaction.
Reading the details, we understand that such a hype Pokémon is because behind it come details that a part of the community does not like.
In case we bring up the issue of incense and I understand that there are new bonuses to compensate for it, but… uff!- Lic. Pokémon Trainer (@TrainnerXAF) March 23, 2022
Added to this was the voice of players who criticized Niantic for reversing the Community Days schedule to 3 hours. The vast majority mention that it should not happen, since precisely the long duration meant that many had the option of joining when they could, arguing that work or personal matters may prevent them from participating in shorter periods. With the changes, some players busy in said 3 hours will miss the event.
I preferred the longer day format, now i will miss it entirely because of work 😫— Klever Osuro (@osuro15) March 23, 2022
That’s rather poor reasoning. A six hour window gives people more flexibility to when and how they play, regardless of how long they do so.— Exatron (@exatron) March 23, 2022
Yes, but how many extra people were able to play because of the extended hours? — Kristi Macdonald (@Xeluu) March 23, 2022
Others pointed out the good points, such as this change will make players in the event less spread out and concentrated in certain places, which could somehow generate interaction between the community, as mentioned by Niantic.
