Note: Special moves are exclusive to the Pokémon's final evolution. So, Dratini itself will not know Draco Meteor, but instead Dragonite will.

Also, the final evolution must be obtained during the event, or up to one hour after it ends.

For three-stage Pokémon, that means you will need a minimum of 125 Candy in order to benefit from obtaining the special Community Day move.

That's 25 Candy for the first evolution, then 100 Candy for the second — and remember any special evolution items or conditions you might need!
