Pokemon Go Community Day Events Are Happening Around The World On May 21

Pokemon Go is steadily introducing more in-person events and the next big one is Community Day happening all over the world on May 21.


Pokemon Go is starting to stretch its legs and get back into the world. A handful of Pokemon Go Fests are happening in July, but ahead of those events, Niantic has announced that Community Day will be happening around the world on May 21.

On May 21, between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM in your local time, you can meet with other Pokemon Go players and representatives from developer Niantic to receive additional in-game items from your PokeStop spins, as well as physical swag you can appreciate in the real world. Alolan Geodude will also appear prominently at these events and there is a chance you will be able to catch a shiny one. You can check the Community Day map to see if the event will be happening near you.
