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.
