    • Flareon: Superpower
    • Espeon: Shadow Ball
    • Umbreon: Psychic
    • Leafeon: Bullet Seed
    • Glaceon: Water Pulse
    • Sylveon: Psyshock
    • Eevee caught or hatched during this time will know Last Resort.
  • Evolving Eevee into Sylveon will require only seven hearts instead of the usual 70.
  • There will be special Timed Research available that rewards a Mossy Lure Module and a Glacial Lure Module.
  • There will be a special one-time-purchase Community Day Box available for 1,280 PokéCoins, featuring 50 Ultra Balls, five Incense, an Elite Fast TM, and an Elite Charged TM.


Niantic also notes in the blog post that “stickers inspired by Eevee and its Evolutions will be available throughout August”. The Eevee sticker will be available by spinning PokéStops, opening Gifts from friends, and purchasing them from the in-game shop. Stickers of the Eeveelutions will only be available for sale via the in-game shop.

This isn’t Eevee’s first time in the Pokémon GO Community Day spotlight! The adorable Pokémon took center stage for August 2018’s Community Day. Back then, it was the first two-day Community Day event and only the Eeveelutions from Kanto and Johto were available. Now, in 2021, the rest of the Eeveelution family is here making it the perfect weekend to evolve ’em all!
