Thoughts on the Community day

The boosts for this community day I personally feel are a little underwhelming. ¼ hatch distance is nice but only if you can get out and active to benefit from it.

With Niantic seemingly trying to destroy Incense for many players, those unable to get out and about for whatever reason (Pandemic, weather etc) will have a hard time getting enough spawns to have proper use of the day

The three types available this event; ground for Sandshrew and Ice/Steel for Alolan Sandshrew offer a nice chance to work on the medals for those respective typings.

The community day box looks a nice one this event for those with the coins to buy it
