Additionally, this article contains my thoughts and opinions in regards to the code that was shared online ‚Äď all of these should be treated as conjecture, not as hard statements. If you‚Äôre OK with that, feel free to read further. Potential spoilers ahead.

With that said, let’s get into it!

Abra Community Day Quests

According to the text found elsewhere in the code, it appears that Abra Community Day will be on March 15th.

string Key = "quest_at_catch_a"
string Translation = "Catch {0} Abra"

string Key = "quest_at_evolve_a"
string Translation = "Evolve {0} Abra"

string Key = "quest_at_evolve_k"
string Translation = "Evolve {0} Kadabra"

Text for three quests involving Abra was pushed to the game master file. Community Day Hype!!

New Ticketed Events

Text for two separate ticketed events have been discovered, one on March 15th and one on March 22nd.

‚ÄúInvestigating Illusions‚ÄĚ ‚Äď March 15th

March 15th will also be Abra Community Day

string Key = "badge_event_0002"
string Translation = "March 15, 2020"

string Key = "badge_event_0002_title"
string Translation = "Investigating Illusions"

string Key = "general1.ticket.2_description"
string Translation = "A ticket to access the ‚ÄúInvestigating Illusions‚ÄĚ bonus Special Research for Abra Community Day on March 15, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time, wherever you are. Details can be found in the in-game News.

YOU MUST PLAY DURING THE SPECIFIED TIME TO RECEIVE THE BONUS."

‚ÄúA Drive to Investigate‚ÄĚ ‚Äď March 22nd

string Key = "badge_event_0001"
string Translation = "March 22, 2020"

string Key = "badge_event_0001_title"
string Translation = "A Drive to Investigate"

string Key = "general1.ticket.1_description"

string Translation = "A ticket to access the A Drive to Investigate special event on March 22, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. local time, wherever you are. Details can be found in the in-game News.

YOU MUST PLAY DURING THE SPECIFIED TIME TO RECEIVE ALL SPECIAL EVENT BONUSES."

It sounds like the two events will be connected somehow, being so close together and worded so similarly?

Safari Zone Updates

string Key = "badge_safarizone_2020_liverpool_day_00_earlyaccess"
string Translation = "Liverpool, April 16, 2020"

string Key = "badge_safarizone_2020_liverpool_day_00_earlyaccess_title"
string Translation = "Pok√©mon GO Safari Zone‚ÄĒEarly Access"

string Key = "badge_safarizone_2020_liverpool_day_00_general"
string Translation = "Liverpool, April 16, 2020"

string Key = "badge_safarizone_2020_liverpool_day_00_general_title"
string Translation = "Pokémon GO Safari Zone"

Just some updates for the upcoming Liverpool Safari zone in April.

Conclusions and Speculation

It looks like Abra Community Day will be on March 15th.  This is potentially very exciting for anybody who didn’t get one during the hour it was mistakenly released during Chicago Go Fest 2019.

The two ticketed events are very intriguing, will they be available for 1 ticket?  Will they be tied together somehow?  Will we get early access to a new mythical Pokémon?

Only time, and an official announcement from Niantic, will tell.

Are you excited for Abra Community Day?
What do you think this special ticketed event/research will be?

Let me know in the comments!  As always, stay safe out there trainers!
