Trainers,

We’re excited to announce more information about in-person meetups for July Community Day on Sunday, July 17, 2022! Raid, trade, and explore with Trainers in your area while catching Starly, the Starling Pokémon. You don’t need to register to join the fun!

Don’t forget—Trainers can earn additional bonuses by playing together during the event! If enough Pokémon are caught with the help of a single Lure Module, Trainers will earn 4× Catch XP near the Lured PokéStop for 30 minutes. Learn more about July Community Day bonuses here.

Can’t make it to one of our in-person meetups? Don’t worry—you’ll still be able to participate in Starly Community Day wherever you are.
