Pokémon GO: Players are dissatisfied with the C-Day – Popular monsters were probably only available for 5 minutes
Pokémon GO December C-Day is over. Now some players are criticizing that certain Pokémon were only available for 5 minutes.
Which Community Day is it? The most recent Community Day in Pokémon GO ran on December 17th and 18th. In our guide to the C-Day in December you could read all the information such as the start, the bonuses and the strengthened spawns.
Trainers could look forward to monsters like Kapuno and Kaumalat, two of the best Pokémon you could get your hands on at C-Day in December 2022.
Why are the players unhappy? The information circulated on reddit during C-Day that three Pokémon would only spawn at certain times and would disappear again after just 5 minutes.
The 3 Pokémon are the popular pocket monsters Bulbasaur, Hydropi, and Dratini, which can evolve into Bulbasaur, Swampex, and Dragoran.
According to player reports, the three only spawned in the last 5 minutes of a given hour – Bulbasaur at 2:55pm, Hydropi at 3:55pm, and Dratini at 4:55pm. Trainers are said to have only had 5 minutes a day to secure the three Pokémon.
