Ah, Pokémon Go – the game that brought the world together, out in the wide, open spaces and unfamiliar terrain of the great outdoors. It encourages an undeniable sense of community that’s coaxed even the shyest nerds among us out of our Dwebble shells, as we plant lures and gather around in search of an illusive Pokémon Go shiny.

To celebrate the unity bred by the game, Niantic has introduced Pokémon Go Community Days, a reoccurring event that offers increased catch rates, lure bonuses, special moves, and more. With the Pokémon Go Community Event Day list growing monthly, there’s always a new one to be looking forward to. So be sure to bookmark this page and check back from time to time, as we’ll keep you in the loop for all the upcoming Pokémon Go Community Event Days.

If you’re looking to keep your finger on the pulse in this fun, outdoor adventure, be sure to check out our list of all the latest Pokémon Go events, along with the new Pokemon Go raids.

What is Pokémon Go Community Day?

Pokémon Go Community Day is a monthly event, each one featuring a specific Pokémon. For a limited time, the featured Pokémon has an increased spawn rate, and a much higher chance to be a shiny – plus, it you can access a special Community Day move for either the featured Pokémon or one of its evolutions. Usually, the event runs for around six hours, though this has varied in the past.

To make the most of the Community Day event, you should stock up on incense and lures, and try to get one of the featured Pokémon evolved to one step before its final evolution, as you will usually have access to a special move if you evolve it during the event time. Also be sure to pop to the in game store on the event day, to snag yourself some free ultra balls.
