The last of the Sinnoh region starters finally gets its Community Day
Get out and play together in your local community parks on Pokémon GO Community Day. For just a few hours each month, you can encounter a special Pokémon in the wild. During these hours, there’s a chance to learn a previously unavailable move for that Pokémon or its Evolution, as well as earn some Community Day bonuses. Celebrate what it means to be a part of the Pokémon GO community and make new friends along the way!
Note: Fast TMs and Charged TMs will not grant exclusive moves during Community Day. To learn the exclusive move, you must catch or evolve the featured Pokémon during Community Day hours.
Find a Meetup Near You
Are you looking for Community Day event details or other Pokémon GO-related meetups happening in your city? There are many websites and platforms that Pokémon GO players use to organize with their local communities. To connect with other Trainers near you, try searching for your city name in conjunction with Pokémon GO on your preferred search engine, or finding groups in your area on social media channels, apps, and websites such as Facebook, Discord, Slack, WhatsApp, and more! These groups are managed independently by players and are not sponsored by Niantic, but offer great opportunities to meet Trainers in your area.
Pokemon GO Community Day
While you’re out celebrating Pokémon GO Community Day with fellow Trainers, be sure to share your experiences on your favorite social media channels with the hashtag #PokemonGOCommunityDay. We can’t wait to hear about all the new memories you’ll be making while playing Pokémon GO at Community Day events!
Pokémon Go’s January 2020 Community Day will feature Piplup, the adorable penguin water-type Pokémon.
The Community Day will take place on Sunday, Jan. 19, but the event time will be different depending on which hemisphere you live in, which is a first for the game. Players in the Northern Hemisphere will have their event active from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in their local time, and players in the Southern Hemisphere will have their event from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. in their local time.
During this event, Piplup will be spawning in large numbers, with a high chance to find it Shiny.
The special Community Day move for Piplup has yet to be officially announced, but it’s pretty safe to say it’s going to be Hydro Cannon, like all the other water-type starter Pokémon. Evolving Piplup into its final evolution, Empoleon, during the event period will give it this powerful move. This is a great move on Empoleon, making it a strong water-type attacker, only behind Kingler, Kyogre, and Swampert.
All eggs put into Incubators during the event period will also hatch four times faster than usual. As with all other Community Days, Lures will also last for three hours.
