As in years past, Niantic has announced that December 2020’s Pokémon GO Community Day will be a celebration of all of the Community Day events that have taken place throughout the year. December’s event is scheduled to occur the weekend of December 12th and 13th, and the festivities will begin at 6:00 a.m. local time on December 12th and will run until 10:00 p.m. local time on December 13th. During that entire time, Pokémon from past years’ Community Day events will be appearing in the wild, in Raids, and from 2k eggs more frequently; and Pokémon from each 2019 and 2020 Community Day event will know a special move once evolved during that timeframe.

The most important part of the party, however, will kick off at 11:00 a.m. local time, and will run until 5:00 p.m. local time on each of the two days, featuring all of 2020’s Community Day Pokémon appearing in the wild more frequently, as well as each of these Pokémon having a higher chance to be an elusive Shiny Pokémon. Saturday, December 12th, will feature Weedle, Abra, Gastly, Rhyhorn, Seedot, and Piplup, in addition to a higher chance for Mega Gengar Raids to appear. Sunday, December 13th, will feature Charmander, Electabuzz, Magmar, Magikarp, and Porygon, with a higher chance of Mega Charizard X Raids appearing. These six hour windows each day will also feature 2x Catch Stardust, ½ Egg Hatch Distance, and all Incense activated will last three hours.

December 2020’s Pokémon event will also feature a special Community Day Box in the game’s Shop – containing 30 Ultra Balls, five Lucky Eggs, one Elite Charged TM, and one Elite Fast TM, special Timed-Research Rewards, and a purchasable ticket for the December Community Day Special Research Story.

Pokémon GO is set to send 2020 out with a bang during December’s Community Day, but please remember to enjoy the event responsibly by following all of your local public health guidelines. Happy catching!
