Niantic update: We sincerely apologize for the issues that occurred in our earliest time zones (GMT+5 – GMT+12) during our Deino Community Day. A makeup event for affected zones will be held on Saturday, July 16, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time.
Deino Runs Rampant and Brutal Swing Debuts during June Community Day
Prepare for a ferocious day of research, raids, and bonuses in Pokémon GO.
What’s black and blue, has a pointy head, and is definitely a biter? The answer is Deino, the Irate Pokémon featured in Pokémon GO‘s June Community Day event on Saturday, June 25, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time. Throughout the day, this ferocious Dark- and Dragon-type Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild. If you’re lucky, you might even find a mean, green Shiny one! Plus, if you evolve Zweilous (the Evolution of Deino) during the event or up to two hours after its conclusion, that Hydreigon will know the Charged Attack Brutal Swing, a Dark-type attack making its Pokémon GO debut.
June Community Day will also feature additional bonuses. Incense and Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours, you’ll earn twice as much Candy for catching Pokémon, and you’ll have double the chance of getting Deino Candy XL when you catch Deino. Plus, Pokémon trades between friends will require only half the regular amount of Stardust. You’ll even be able to make an additional Special Trade between June 24, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. and June 25, 2022, at 10:00 a.m.
You can work together with other Trainers to unlock additional bonuses throughout the event. Catching enough Pokémon attracted to a single Lure Module will attract wild Zweilous near the PokéStop where the Lure was installed. Tickets for a Deino Community Day–exclusive Special Research story titled Field Notes: Deino will be available in the in-game shop for US$1 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency). Remember that you can treat a friend to a Special Research ticket by tapping the Special Research ticket in the in-game shop, then tapping the Gift button.
You’ll also be able to extend your June Community Day experience by participating in unique four-star raids. On June 25, 2022, from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time, look for blue-colored Raid Eggs appearing on top of Gyms and prepare to take on Zweilous. Defeating the Hostile Pokémon in a Raid Battle will cause Deino to appear in the wild in a 300-meter radius of the Gym for the next 30 minutes—along with an increased chance of finding a Shiny Deino! These four-star raids are not accessible via Remote Raid Passes and can only be accessed with Raid Passes or Premium Battle Passes.
Take a bite out of Pokémon GO and have a Deino-mite Community Day, Trainers!
