Trainers, almost three years since the first Community Day event, 35 successful Community Day events behind us, and we’re looking forward to the next and last Community Day event in December 2020.
Once a month, we have a special day called the Community Day event. Only on this day, Niantic and Pokemon introduce 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.
Niantic and Pokemon Go introduced the very first Community Day event on January 20, 2018, featuring Pikachu as the Special Pokemon. Since then, we have seen/participated in 35 Community Day events – 12 in 2018, 12 in 2019, and 11 in 2020.
