Don’t miss December Community Day!

Trainers,

As we say goodbye to 2020, let’s take a look back on the Community Day events we shared together.

This year, our final Community Day event will be held on Saturday, December 12, and Sunday, December 13, 2020. Throughout the event, Pokémon featured in Community Day events throughout 2019 and 2020 will be appearing more frequently in the wild and in raids, so this event will be a great time for you to catch Pokémon featured in any Community Day events you may have missed! For a limited time each day, you’ll be more likely to encounter certain Shiny Pokémon, you’ll benefit from bonuses, and different Pokémon will be appearing more frequently in Mega Raids! Read on for details on what you can expect from each day of the December Community Day weekend.
