Trainers, we’ve received multiple request from our readers asking for a simple, yet comprehensible, Stardust chart for the current Stardust Blast event and the upcoming Cyndaquil Community day event. Niantic has recently confirmed that we will have quadruple (4x) Stardust gains from catches during Cyndaquil day, acknowledging that event bonuses stack on top of each other.
Quadruple Stardust, increased hatch and catch bonuses and Star Piece make this a particularly good time to farm Stardust, and we wanted to help out our fellow Trainers. With that in mind, we created this Stardust farming guide that helps you maximize the Stardust gains over this week.
Stardust bonuses during Stardust Blast and Cyndaquil Community day events
Stardust Blast event catch and hatch bonuses
Stardust blast event features double Stardust from catching Pokemon and hatching eggs. All other methods that give Stardust are not doubled, so forget about chain raiding or stacking Field Research. These will be naturally boosted if you activate a Star Piece, but other than that, everything works as it would usually work.
In the tables below, the emoji denotes Stardust amount if you have an active Star Piece and the Baseline column shows “normal” Stardust amounts when no bonuses are active.
|Evolution stage||Baseline||Stardust Blast||SB + Weather|
|Base||100 (150 )||200 (300 )||250 (375 )|
|Evolved||300 (450 )||600 (900 )||750 (1125 )|
|Final evolved||500 (750 )||1000 (1500 )||1250 (1875 )|
And now for the Egg hatches during the Stardust Blast event (do note that this table has a dedicated Star Piece column only for hatches during the event, as it was simply easier to outline everything in this way):
|Egg type||Baseline||Stardust Blast||SB +|
|2 km||400 – 800||800 – 1600||1200 – 2400|
|5 km||800 – 1600||1600 – 3200||2400 – 4800|
|10 km||1600 – 3200||3200 – 6400||4800 – 9600|
Honestly speaking, we were never big fans of the 7 km eggs, and this event makes us even more reluctant. They have a poor hatch pool (given you have collected everything that can hatch from them), they give the same amount of Stardust as 5 km eggs and they are a complete annoyance once they pile up. Using Super Incubators to get rid of them is not mandatory, but it sure does help a lot. We’ll talk more about this issue later on tho.
