Pokemon Go August 2018 Community Day Details Announced

With July’s Community Day now behind us, Pokemon Go developer Niantic has shared the first details about next month’s event. August’s Community Day will kick off on Saturday, August 11, but unlike previous events, it will return for an encore the follow day, August 12, giving players two chances to participate next month.

Despite being available for an extra day, August’s Community Days will still each only run for three hours, as was the case with previous events. During the designated times, players will find increased spawns of a particular Pokemon and earn bonus rewards for playing.

Niantic will host August’s Community Day during the same window of time each day, although the time the events begin will vary depending upon where you live. You can find the scheduled Community Day hours for each region below.

The featured Pokemon during August’s events is Eevee. In addition to appearing in much greater numbers than usual, players will presumably also have a chance to find a Shiny Eevee during the event hours. As with previous Community Days, Eevee will also be able to learn a special move during the event, although Niantic has not yet revealed what that will be.

On top of increased Eevee spawns, players who participate in August’s Community Days will earn other in-game bonuses. This time, players will receive triple the normal amount of Stardust for capturing Pokemon. Additionally, any Lure Modules that are activated during the event will last for three hours, rather than their usual 30 minutes.

While August’s Community Days are still a few weeks away, the next real-world Pokemon Go event is right around the corner. The second annual Pokemon Go Fest takes place in Chicago this weekend, from July 14-15. Even if you can’t attend in person, players can participate in Global Challenges; if each region is able to meet its Global Challenge goal, Niantic will host a special Zapdos Day event on July 21.

Moreover, the Alolan forms of Diglett and Geodude will begin appearing in the wild around the world beginning July 14. Niantic has also announced that the Legendary Pokemon Lugia will return to Raid Battles this weekend only, temporarily replacing Regice. The latter will return as a Raid Boss following Pokemon Go Fest and will remain in the game until July 19.
