Previous Story: Trainers, the next, seventh in a row Community Day event of 2020 is going live in July, featuring Gastly, its shiny forms, new special move, and cool bonuses.

Niantic and Pokemon Go didn’t share any details about the exact date when July’s Community Day is going live, but we expect to see an official announcement very soon.

The Community Day events usually go live during a weekend, from 11 AM to 5 PM local time, and we expect Gastly Community Day to go live on the 18th of July. Please have in mind that this is not confirmed yet and it’s only our guess.

July’s Community Day will bring Gastly and this Pokemon will be appearing more frequently in the wild and we would definitely have a chance to catch its shiny forms.

As for the bonuses, we would most likely get 3x Catch Stardust or 1/4 Egg Hatch Distance and 3-hour Lures. They will also launch a new special one-time-purchase Community Day bundle, but we don’t have details on which items will be included.

More details will be revealed very soon, so until then stay with us and get the latest Pokemon Go news.
