As we enter summer and approach July, Niantic is ready to reveal Pokémon GO’s July Community Day star. Continuing with the Unova region starters, Tepig the Fire Pig Pokémon is next in line for the Community Day spotlight. You’ll see this feisty and adorable Fire-type Pokémon appear everywhere on Saturday, July 3rd from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (your local time).

 

 

The official Pokémon GO blog has all the details, so expect the following features and bonuses:
