Pokemon Go Niantic Compensate for Bagon Community Day Issues

Trainers, the fourth in a row Community Day event of 2019 is over and it seems like some players didn’t have a great time during the event. Many players experienced server issues, while some didn’t obtain the Exclusive Move Outrage.

April’s Community Day event went live on April 13, featuring Bagon as the Special Pokemon, 3-hour Lures, 3x Catch XP and new Special Move for Salamance – Outrage.

During the 3-hour event, there was a server issue and Niantic extended the Community Day event and the time to get the Special move by one hour.

This didn’t help and players didn’t obtain the Special Move Outrage.

Niantic acknowledges the mistake and is now giving:

  • 1 Premium Raid Pass
  • 3 Lucky Eggs
  • 1 Star Piece
  • 1 Incense

as satisfactory compensation and you can find the confirmation email from Niantic Support below.

Hey there, I'm Dejan! Let me take you through my life, where family, gaming, and CrossFit play prominent roles. Since day one, I've been surrounded by the love and support of my family. Growing up, every moment spent with my parents and siblings was filled with warmth and laughter, creating memories I hold dear. As a parent now, I've experienced a whole new level of love and responsibility. My two wonderful kids bring endless joy and a sense of purpose to my life. In the digital realm, I found my passion - gaming. Whether I'm conquering the world of Apex Legends or embarking on adventures in Pokemon Go, gaming fuels my sense of adventure and competition. Beyond the virtual world, I discovered the exhilaration of CrossFit. The challenging workouts, camaraderie with fellow fitness enthusiasts, and constant drive to push my limits have become an integral part of my life. Balancing family time, gaming, and CrossFit has been a journey of self-discovery. Each passion complements the other, bringing fulfillment and joy to my daily routine.


  1. This compensation is lame. Bagon is already rare in my area and dragon types are known good tanks for raiding. Unless they plan on having a Salamance raid event with outrage as a special raid boss move, the premium raid pass doesn’t solve the problem of not being able to get the special community day bonus. Perhaps they will have another anniversary community day where all the Pokemon from past community days are available to catch with their special moves. That’s how I was able to fix my Dragonite mistake after the first community day. I think this compensation attempt missed the mark by far.
