Pokemon Go Details Its In-Person August Community Day Plans

Players can now easily find meetups thanks to the community day interactive map.


Niantic has announced more details for its in-person meetups for the Pokemon Go August event, which will take place on August 13 from 11 PM to 2 PM local time. Players participating as a group during the event will be eligible to earn additional bonuses. Those unable to attend in-person meetups can still participate in the Galarian Zigzagoon Community Day worldwide.

As previously reported, the upcoming in-person event will feature the Galarian Zigzagoon. If it evolves into a Galarian Linoone during the event or five hours afterward, players will be rewarded with a Galarian Obstagoon that knows the charged attack Obstruct.

There will also be a Community Day interactive map, so players can find in-person meetups and locations to find Pokestops to obtain more items during the event.

To participate in the event, players must purchase a $1 ticket to gain access to the Galarian Zigzagoon. After purchasing the tickets, they'll receive a special research story and field notes on the Galarian Zigzagoon.

The following items will be included as a community day bonus:

  • 3 Catch Stardust
  • 2 Catch Candy
  • 2 Chance for Trainers level 31 and up to receive XL Candy from catching Pokémon
  • 3 Hour Lure Modules
  • 3 Hour Incenses
  • Snapshot surprise

Players can look forward to the Pokemon Go Fest 2022 in-person event in Sapporo, Japan. You can purchase tickets now by visiting the Niantic website.
