Hey, Trainers! Up for another exciting day? Pokemon Go holds another community day on August 22, and we’ll lay down all details you need to know. Stick with us!

Pokemon Go Community Day Date

The Pokemon Company and Niantic have been actively updating their mobile AR game for quite some time now. Trainers are all over the world catching different Pokemons they can see around. The release of this game serves as a new adventure for Pokemon fans, as they first-hand experience face-to-face encounters with the species they just see on the TV series or in video games.

Moreover, Pokemon Go launches its Community Day this August 13, 2022, Saturday, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time! Pokemon also confirms that Community Day this August features Galarian Zigzagoon, the cute tiny raccoon Pokemon. There is a lot to expect in Community Day, so read through until the end!

About Galarian Zigzagoon

Additionally, Zigzagoon belongs to Generation III, and the event centers on its evolution forms. Galarian Zigzagoon often appears in the wild, so take your chances, and go search for your own Zigzagoon at the event!

Well, Pokemon Go Community Day loves surprises! Find your Galarian Zigzagoon, evolve it to Galarian Linoone, then evolve this latest form during the event (or up to five hours after), and go home with Obstagoon!
