Niantic has announced that the Pokémon for the Community Day's for June 2020 and July 2020 will be decided by a vote.

Community Day voting is back! Which Pokémon will you choose to be featured during June and July Community Days?

Trainers, Remember voting for the featured Pokémon for February Community Day? Well, we’re bringing it back—with a twist! From May 23 to May 24, you’ll be able to vote for the Pokémon you’d like featured via Twitter! The two Pokémon that receive the most votes will go on to be featured during the next Community Days, with the Pokémon with the most votes featured in June and the runner-up in July!

Community Day candidates
Your Community Day candidates will be Squirtle, Weedle, Sandshrew, and Gastly. Here are the exclusive attacks that would be featured for each Pokémon’s Community Day.

  • Squirtle: Evolve Wartortle (the evolved form of Squirtle) to get a Blastoise that knows the Fighting-type attack Aura Sphere. Currently an exclusive attack that only Lucario can learn, Aura Sphere will be particularly handy when Blastoise faces off against popular Steel-type Pokémon in the GO Battle League, such as Registeel.
  • Weedle: Evolve Kakuna (the evolved form of Weedle) to get a Beedrill that knows the Ground-type attack Drill Run. The unique type combination of Beedrill’s Bug and Poison types with the Ground-type Drill Run will be sure to inspire some innovative battle strategies.
  • Sandshrew: Sandshrew as originally discovered in the Kanto region will be appearing in the wild and hatching from Eggs. Alolan Sandshrew will be appearing in Raid Battles. Evolve Sandshrew or Alolan Sandshrew to get a Sandslash or Alolan Sandslash that knows the Ghost-type attack Shadow Claw. Shadow Claw will be a welcome addition for both Sandslash, but it will give Alolan Sandslash a new Fast Attack that both charges Charged Attacks faster and is more powerful than Powder Snow.
  • Gastly: Evolve Haunter (the evolved form of Gastly) to get a Gengar that knows the Ghost-type attack Shadow Punch. Shadow Punch’s ability to charge up quickly will give Gengar a useful attack to trick your opponent into using their Protect Shields. This can leave you with an opening to pull off more powerful attacks later, like Shadow Ball!
Featured bonuses and more Community Day details will be announced at a later date.

How to vote
We will post a poll on our official Pokémon GO Twitter on Saturday, May 23, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7) and you’ll be able to cast your vote until Sunday, May 24, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7). You will have 24 hours to cast one vote for the Pokémon you’d like to see most for either June or July Community Day. The winners will be announced shortly after voting ends. The Pokémon that receives the most votes by the end of the voting period will be the featured Pokémon for June Community Day. The Pokémon that receives the second-most votes will be featured during July Community Day.

Make your voices heard, Trainers. It’s time for you to choose which Pokémon you want as the featured Pokémon for June and July Community Days. Be sure to campaign for the Pokémon you most want to be chosen, and use #PokemonGOCommunityDay when doing so! Let’s GO!

Please be aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change.

Pokémon GO’s May Community Day Features Seedot

The Acorn Pokémon will appear more frequently on May Community Day, and you’ll have the chance to get a Shiftry that knows an exclusive attack.

Pokémon GO's May Community Day will feature a growth in the number of the Grass-type Pokémon Seedot around the world. This event will take place on Sunday, May 24, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in your local time zone.

Seedot will show up in the wild much more frequently during Community Day hours, and if you're lucky, you may encounter a Shiny Seedot. Plus, if you evolve Nuzleaf (the evolved form of Seedot) into Shiftry during the event or up to two hours afterward, the Shiftry will know an exclusive attack that it normally can't learn.

If you have a Buddy Pokémon that has a Buddy Level of Great Buddy or higher, it'll bring you helpful items throughout the event, such as Poké Balls. Additionally, Incense activated during the event will last three hours, and you'll receive three times the usual XP for catching Pokémon. And be sure to take a few snapshots during the event for a surprise!

May Community Day will also feature an exclusive Special Research story. You'll be able to access this Special Research for US$1 (or the equivalent in your local currency). Complete it to earn a bunch of amazing rewards. Stay tuned for when tickets go live!

Abra Community Day rescheduled for Saturday, April 25, 2020

Trainers, We’ve made some temporary changes to Community Day to make it easier for you to participate from anywhere you play, including at home. We’d like to introduce you to Community Day: Play at Home Edition.

Date + Time
Rescheduled from March, April Community Day will still feature Abra, the Psi Pokémon. The event will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time—yes, you’ll have an additional three hours of Community Day gameplay to enjoy!

Features
Remember our previous Abra Community Day announcement? From that, the following will still be happening.

  • Abra will be appearing more frequently in the wild.
  • If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny Abra.
  • Evolve Abra during the event or up to two hours afterward to obtain an Alakazam that knows an exclusive attack. We’d like to announce here that that exclusive attack will be the Fighting-type Fast Attack Counter!

Complete it for 13,000 Stardust, a Poffin, a Rocket Radar, and other rewards. Stay tuned for when tickets go live! The ticket to this Special Research story event is nonrefundable. Subject to applicable law and the exceptions set forth in the Terms of Service.
We're continuing to prioritize Pokémon GO experiences that can be enjoyed in individual settings. Here are some things we’re temporarily changing for Community Day: Play at Home Edition.

  • As mentioned above, Community Day will now run for six hours instead of the regular three.
  • The bonus will now be 3× Catch Stardust. This will be the perfect time to collect Stardust and power up your Pokémon for the GO Battle League!
  • Instead of Lure Modules, Incense will last for three hours for the duration of the event.

Niantic has announced that for the February 2020 Community Day, players of Pokémon GO will have the chance to vote for the featured Pokémon for the day.

Pokémon GO - Vote for February Community Day’s featured Pokémon

Trainers, Community Day is a key piece of what makes Pokémon GO a unique gaming experience. It’s an event that encourages all Trainers to go out and play together one day a month, and we’ve been endlessly inspired by the impact it’s had on building local communities. To allow Community Day to live up to its name even more, we’re letting Trainers everywhere vote for what the next featured Community Day Pokémon will be.

We hope to take the lessons from this experiment and use them to make Community Day the best it can be, and we thank you for your patience. More info below.

  1. Voting Timeline
  2. February 2020 Community Day Pokémon Candidates
  3. Voting-Day Field Research Tasks

Voting Timeline
Here is what you can expect in the coming weeks.

  1. Announcement of the Community Day candidates: On Wednesday, January 22, 2020 (today), we announce the Pokémon in the running to be the featured Community Day Pokémon, what their event-exclusive attacks will be, and the Field Research tasks you will need to complete to vote for your Pokémon of choice.
  2. Voting day: Voting day will be on Saturday, February 1, 2020, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. in your local time zone. Votes will be counted via the total number of Field Research tasks completed globally within the allotted time.
  3. Announcement of the winner: On Monday, February 3, 2020, two days after voting day closes, we will announce which Pokémon will be featured for February Community Day.
  4. February Community Day: The Community Day featuring the winning Pokémon will take place on Saturday, February 22, 2020. The featured bonus will be 3× Catch Stardust. Per the last update, Community Day for Trainers in the northern hemisphere will run from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time, while in the southern hemisphere, it will run from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time.

February 2020 Community Day Pokémon Candidates
Your candidates for the next Community Day are Vulpix, Machop, Rhyhorn, and Dratini. Learn about their Community Day attacks and more below.

  • Vulpix: Vulpix as originally discovered in the Kanto region will be appearing in the wild and in Eggs. Alolan Vulpix will be appearing in Field Research and Raid Battles. Evolve Vulpix or Alolan Vulpix into Ninetales or Alolan Ninetales for the Charged Attack Weather Ball. Ninetales will learn Fire-type Weather Ball, and Alolan Ninetales will learn Ice-type Weather Ball—attacks previously exclusive to Castform. Shiny Vulpix as originally discovered in the Kanto region will become available for the first time in Pokémon GO.
  • Machop: Evolve Machop into Machamp for the exclusive attack Payback. This Dark-type Charged Attack will give Machamp good coverage to deal with Psychic- and Ghost-type Pokémon that might otherwise give it trouble.
  • Rhyhorn: Evolve Rhyhorn into Rhyperior for the exclusive attack Rock Wrecker. Known to be Rhyperior’s signature move, this Rock-type Charged Attack will be a powerful addition to Rhyperior’s repertoire. Shiny Rhyhorn will also become available to encounter for the first time in Pokémon GO.
  • Dratini: Evolve Dratini into Dragonite for the Charged Attack Superpower. This powerful Fighting-type attack is a recent addition to Pokémon GO and could be a strategic option for Dragonite. For example, it could help Dragonite against Ice- and Rock-type Pokémon that would normally have an advantage over it. Superpower could also help Dragonite deal with Steel-type Pokémon that are weak to Fighting-type attacks.

Voting-Day Field Research Tasks
In order to ensure fairness, all candidates’ Field Research tasks will have the same objective you’ll need to complete in order to cast a vote for the February 2020 Community Day Pokémon. The Field Research objective you’ll need to complete will be...catching 20 Pokémon to earn 200 Stardust.

These are the four Field Research tasks you will see on voting day:
  • Vote for Machop Community Day! Catch 20 Pokémon
  • Vote for Rhyhorn Community Day! Catch 20 Pokémon
  • Vote for Vulpix Community Day! Catch 20 Pokémon
  • Vote for Dratini Community Day! Catch 20 Pokémon
The Field Research tasks will be available on voting day, Saturday, February 1, 2020, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. in your local time zone. Every PokéStop that day will have a voting-related research task. If the PokéStop you spin does not have a task for the Pokémon you want to vote for, please spin a different PokéStop. We will ensure that there is an even distribution of these research tasks among PokéStops, and we’ll account for areas that have fewer PokéStops as well.

One research task completed equates to one vote for the Pokémon listed on the completed task. You may complete more than one voting research task, and they will each count as a vote for whichever Pokémon is listed on each task. Be sure to complete as much research as you can for the Pokémon you want featured for Community Day!

We hope you’re just as excited as we are to have the first-ever community-chosen Community Day Pokémon! You have one week to help campaign for the Pokémon you most want to be chosen—be sure to use #PokemonGOCommunityDay when doing so!

Make your voices heard, Trainers. It’s time for you to choose which Pokémon you want as the next Community Day Pokémon. Let’s GO!
