Another month means another Community Day for Pokemon Go fans to enjoy. Up next is August 2021, and Trainers will be able to catch plenty of the adorable Eevee!

Community Days are once-a-month events that shine a light on one specific Pokemon. As well as spawn rates being boosted, there are event-exclusive Special Research tasks, bonuses like double XP, and rare moves to be unlocked.

Niantic have confirmed that the August Community Day headliner will be the loveable Kanto Pokemon Eevee, and it will actually take place over two days! This will no doubt be a popular event for Trainers around the world.


Even better, there will be event-exclusive moves for each Eevee evolution like Sylveon, Umbreon, and Flareon. Here’s everything you need to know to prepare for the August 2021 Community Day.

Eevee is the next Community Day in Pokemon Go.

August Community Day Eevee exclusive moves

When you evolve Eevee during the August Community Day, its evolutions will know the following event-exclusive moves:

  • Espeon – Shadow Ball
  • Flareon – Superpower
  • Glaceon – Water Pulse
  • Jolteon – Zap Cannon
  • Leafeon – Bullet Seed
  • Sylveon – Psyshock
  • Umbreon – Psychic
  • Vaporeon – Scald

You’ll need to evolve your Eevee into any of its evolutions between Friday, August 13, 2021, at 10am and Monday, August 16, 2021 at 10am PDT for them to learn the associated event-exclusive move.

Additionally, any Eevee caught or hatched during the August Community Day will automatically know the move Last Resort.

August Community Day bonuses

There are several bonuses available during the August Eevee Community Day, which you can see below:


  • Evolving Eevee into Sylveon will only require seven hearts instead of 70.
  • Eggs will require one-quarter of their usual Hatch Distance.
  • Incense will last for three hours during the event.
  • Lure Modules will last for three hours during the event.

August Community Day Special Research

There will be an event-exclusive Special Research story that Trainers can take part in during the August Community Day, called What You Choose To Be.

To access this Special Research, you’ll need to purchase a ticket from the Pokemon Go Shop for $1 (or the equivalent pricing in your currency). This should go on sale shortly before the Community Day takes place.

We’ll add details about the What You Choose To Be tasks and rewards when it goes live.

Pokemon Go August Community Day start date & time

Eevee’s Community Day is a two-day extravaganza.

The August Community Day will take place on both Saturday, August 14, 2021 and Sunday, August 15, 2021. Event features will be available from 11am to 5pm on each day, in each Trainer’s local time.


Eevee will be the star of the show, so it’s no wonder Niantic have decided to make this an extra-special two-day event in Pokemon Go!

  • Clear out your Pokemon Storage for all the catching you’ll be doing.
  • Purchase a ticket from the Shop to unlock the Community Day’s Special Research.
