Pokemon Go February Community Day details

It is highly recommended to have a Star Piece active during the whole event to maximize Stardust gain and catch every Pokemon possible, specially those with a weather boost.

Star Piece

Here are some Stardust calculations for the event:

  • Catching a basic Pokemon during the triple Stardust event with a Star Piece activated:
    100 Stardust x 3 = 300 Stardust + Star Piece (+ 50 %) = 450 Stardust
  • Catching a first evolution Pokemon
    300 x 3 = 900 + Star Piece = 1,350 Stardust
  • Catching a second evolution Pokemon
    500 x 3 = 1,500 + Star Piece = 2,250 Stardust

If the Pokemon is weather boosted:

  • 100 + 25 = 125 x 3 = 375 + Star Piece = 562.5 Stardust
  • 300 + 75 = 375 x 3 = 1,125 + Star piece = 1,687.5 Stardust
  • 500 + 125 = 625 x 3 = 1,875 + Star Piece = 2,812.5 Stardust

Feeding a berry at a gym

  • 20 x 3 = 60 + Star Piece = 90

Complete a raid

  • 500 x 3 = 1,500 + Star Piece = 2,250

Now is the time to power up those good Dragonites!
