The December Community Day Event Features 2021 and 2022 Community Day Pokémon

Pokémon GO Community Days offer opportunities for Trainers to catch exciting Pokémon, earn lots of Candy, teach their Pokémon featured attacks without having to use an Elite TM, and benefit from incredible event bonuses. Pokémon GO’s December Community Day event on December 17 and 18 is taking all of those incredible benefits to the next level by featuring Pokémon from Community Days throughout 2021 and 2022. This means that Trainers who may have missed a Community Day over the last two years get another chance at catching some favorites.

From 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. local time on December 17 and 18, 2022, the following event bonuses will be in effect.

  • 2× XP for catching Pokémon

  • 2× Stardust for catching Pokémon

  • 1/2 Hatch Distance for Eggs placed in Incubators during the event period

  • 2× Candy for catching Pokémon

  • 2× chance for Trainers Level 31 and above to receive Candy XL for catching Pokémon

  • Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours

  • Incense (excluding Daily Adventure Incense) activated during the event will last for three hours

  • One additional Special Trade for a maximum of two per day

  • Trades made during the event will require 50% less Stardust

Of course, one of the best parts of any Community Day is the opportunity to teach your Pokémon featured attacks that might otherwise require an Elite TM. The December Community Day event will feature not one, not two, but 15 featured attacks! Evolve these Pokémon on December 17 or 18 between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. local time to learn the following featured attacks.

  • Evolve Ivysaur to get a Venusaur that knows the Charged Attack Frenzy Plant

For Trainers who participate in the GO Battle League, it’s worth noting that Draco Meteor, Frenzy Plant, Hydro Cannon, Icicle Spear, and Obstruct are all extremely popular moves. It’s well worth catching and evolving Pokémon with these moves to climb the ranks.

And if all that wasn’t enough to keep you busy, the Community Day Special Research story December Community Day 2022 is available for US$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency). You can complete the Special Research story yourself, purchase a ticket for a friend that you’ve achieved a Friendship level of Great Friends or higher with, or both! To gift a ticket, tap the Special Research ticket in the in-game shop, then tap the Gift button instead of the Buy button.

Enjoy the Community Day fun, Trainers!
