Pokémon GO’s December 2021 Community Day Is a Weekend-Long Celebration
Bolster your team with Pokémon featured during Community Day events in 2020 and 2021.
December’s Pokémon GO Community Day is a special two-day event that invites you to look back on the Pokémon partners you’ve befriended during past Community Day events. On Saturday, December 18, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 19, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, Pokémon featured during 2021’s Community Day events will appear more frequently in the wild, while Pokémon that starred in 2020’s Community Day events will be hatching from Eggs and appearing in raids. It’s a great opportunity to catch any Pokémon you may have missed, and there will be an array of bonuses that’ll make the celebration all the sweeter.
Certain Pokémon will be appearing in the wild during each day of the event, but each Pokémon listed below will also be attracted to Incense and Lure Modules on both days. If you’re lucky, you might find a Shiny Pokémon!

Raids ‘n’ Eggs
Throughout the weekend, look for these Pokémon to appear in raids and hatch from 2 km Eggs. If you’re lucky, you might find a Shiny one!
Each Pokémon appearing during the December 2021 Community Day weekend will be able to learn the featured attacks from their respective 2020 and 2021 Community Day events. To teach a Pokémon such an attack, you’ll need to evolve it to its final Evolution between Friday, December 17, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. and Monday, December 20, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. PST (GMT −8).

During the event, Incense and Lure Modules will both last for three hours, and you’ll earn twice as much XP and Stardust for catching Pokémon. Finally, Eggs placed in Incubators during the event will hatch in half the usual distance.
Special Research tasks will be available from Friday, December 17, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Monday, December 20, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. PST (GMT −8).
