GPS Error Can Stop You From Learning Special Move

Earn Sinnoh Stones During Community Day

You can earn up to 5 Sinnoh Stones in Trainer Battles during Community Day. You'll also get up to 5 rewards per day during Community Day weekend.

Choose High Stats Swinub To Evolve

If you already have a high IV or high stat Swinub in your inventory, you can also evolve it during Community Day. Be sure to mark & favorite this Swinub so you won't forget it.

Capture Low CP Swinub For Great League

If you want to focus on battling and using Mamoswine for the Great League, be sure to catch low CP Swinub. When you evolve them, their CP will be around 1500, allowing you to use them for the Great League.

Collect & Save Many Ultra Balls
