Community Day is a monthly worldwide event in Pokémon GO dedicated to celebrate players in the Pokémon GO community.[1]

Features

Pokémon GO Community Day is an opportunity for Trainers around the world to meet up at their local parks to make new friends and experience what it means to be a part of this special community.[1]

Once a month, Niantic hosts a Pokémon GO Community Day event starring a special Pokémon, which appears frequently around the world for just a few hours. When caught or evolved during the event, this special Pokémon will know an exclusive move. Other bonuses are in effect during the event, such as increased XP, Stardust, shiny rate and Lure Modules activated during the event last for three hours.[1]

Shop special offer

Community Day Box
Main article: List of shop special offers and promotions#Community Day

Starting with February 2018 Community Day there were several purchasable item bundle boxes from the shop for the time of each Community Day, except July 2018 and February 2019.

Since March 2018 Community Day they've been officially called "Community Day Box" and since May 2018 Community Day these boxes started to use separate graphic asset that would distinguish them from other special offer boxes in the shop.
