December Community Day

Community Day

Starts:
Saturday, December 16, at 9:00 AM Local Time
Ends:
Sunday, December 17, at 9:00 PM Local Time

The year is nearly behind us, which means it’s time to reflect on all the fun everyone had during this year’s Community Days. If you missed any, now’s your chance to catch up!

The last Community Day of 2023 will take place over two days—Saturday, December 16, 2023, and Sunday, December 17, 2023.

Throughout the event, Pokémon featured in Community Day events in 2023 will appear more frequently in the wild and as reward encounters for Timed Research. Pokémon featured in Community Day events throughout 2022 will hatch from Eggs and appear in raids and as reward encounters for Timed Research. There’s no better way to wrap up the year than by catching Pokémon from Community Day events you may have missed!

Note: The only difference between Day 1 and Day 2 are the Pokémon appearing more frequently in the wild.
