Trainers around the world have the best opportunity to meet other fellow Trainers at their local parks during the Pokemon Go Community Day event. This is the best part of the game – meeting new friends and having fun while catching Pokemon, right?
Once a month, the players have a special day called Community Day. Only on this day, the game introduces a Special Pokemon which appears quite often, but just for a few hours. Also, this Pokemon will know an exclusive move. There is an increased XP, more Stardust, greater Shiny rate and Lure Modules which last for three hours.
The very first Pokemon Go Community Day event was introduced last year, on January 20, 2018, featuring Pikachu as the Special Pokemon.
In 2018 we had 12 successful Community Day events, a lot of shiny Pokemon, and it looks like Niantic and Pokemon Go are not done here, and they want for this event to keep on going in 2019 too.
With that being said, we’re looking forward to 12 new Community Day events, a lot of shiny Pokemon and new, cool surprises.
