Pokémon Go Community Day May 2021
What is Pokémon Go Community Day?
During a 6-hour event, a single Pokémon is chosen and its abilities and other forms are celebrated. Every Trainer looks forward to the monthly Pokémon Go Community Day event, where the specially designated Pokémon—often a rare or uncommon spawn—shows up in the wild with an increased spawn rate.
During Community Day, Pokémon spawn throughout the world allowing trainers to catch them more easily with an increased chance of the Pokémon being a Shiny version. If the trainer evolves the Pokémon into its final form, the Pokémon learns an exclusive move it would otherwise be unable to learn. These moves are typically better than the Pokémon's original moveset, giving it a greater advantage during raid battles and against other players.
