The Pokemon Go Community Day for December starts today! This is your chance to catch up on missed Pokemon from previous community days. Here are all the details including date, time and the Pokemon available – it’s a big one!

Pokemon Go Community Day December Event

Update 30/11: The massive December Community Day starts later today. All the Pokemon from all the community days in 2018 will be available. They will also come with their special moves, which are listed below.

Putting the community day over a weekend as opposed to the usual day is an interesting tactic. On one hand it does allow Pokemon trainers to catch up on the action from earlier in the year. However, it does lose the Pokemon Go community day feel. Feedback suggests Pokemon fans are more than happy with the end of year surprise though!


Update 21/11: The below prediction was almost right! The official Pokemon Go Twitter account confirmed that Pokemon from all of this year’s community days will appear in the wild again. As eluded to above, these Pokemon will be available for the entire weekend!

On top of this all the featured moves from the previous community days will also be available! Furthermore, there will be special bonuses available for a three hour allotted time slot in each region.

This special end of year celebration gives trainers the opportunity to go back and find missed Pokemon from previous community days. It also gives the chance of finding those elusive shiny Pokemon. That’s right Charmander, we all want a shiny Charizard.


Community Day Wild Pokemon

The list of Pokemon available for this huge Community Day (or weekend) is substantial. These Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild. Here is the list of featured Pokemon along with their special community day moves.

  • Bulbasaur – Frenzy Plant
  • Charmander – Blast Burn
  • Squirtle – Hydro Cannon
  • Pikachu – Surf
  • Eevee – Last Resort
  • Dratini – Draco Meteor
  • Chikorita – Frenzy Plant
  • Cyndaquil – Blast Burn
  • Mareep – Dragon Pulse
  • Larvitar – Smack Down
  • Bledum – Meteor Mash

These special moves will be available when these Pokemon are evolved into their final forms. The exception to this is Pikachu who will already know the surf attack.

The delayed announcement has resulted in some Pokemon trainers predicting a rather big event for the December Community Day.

This big event would be the previous 11 Community Days being repeated over 11 days in December. There are issues with this however as these 11 consecutive days would exclude some Pokemon Go players.


Pokemon Go Community Day December Date

Usually Pokemon Go Community Day’s are announced just a few days after the previous one ended. The November Community Day finished on November 10.

It has been long overdue but we now know the date of the next Pokemon Go Community Day which is November 30 to December 2. Moreover, the event will last the duration of the three days!

Pokemon Go Community Day December Time

The December Community Day will run from November 30, 1pm PST to December 2, 11pm PST. The times and dates for the special bonus in each region are as follows:

  • Europe, Middle East, Africa and India regions will run from December 1, 10am UTC to 1pm UTC
