Pokemon Go Oshawott Community DaySource: The Pokémon Company, Niantic

Pokémon Go Community Days are exactly what the name implies — a way to get trainers out catching and raiding together...or at least they were. Now, with so many places having Shelter in Place orders and social distancing being critical, Niantic has evolved the Community Day experience into Community Day: Play at Home Edition. Now, Community Day lives on, running twice as long and with bonuses designed to be playable from the safety of your home. Read ahead for everything you need to know about Pokémon Go Community Day and be sure to check out our best Pokémon Go accessories so you can be fully equipped for your Pokémon Journey!

The September 2021 Community Day will feature Oshawott, the Sea Otter Pokémon

Get out and play together in your local community parks on Pokémon GO Community Day. For just a few hours each month, you can encounter a special Pokémon in the wild. During these hours, there's a chance to learn a previously unavailable move for that Pokémon or its Evolution, as well as earn some Community Day bonuses. Celebrate what it means to be a part of the Pokémon GO community and make new friends along the way!

Note: Fast TMs and Charged TMs will not grant exclusive moves during Community Day. To learn the exclusive move, you must catch or evolve the featured Pokémon during Community Day hours.

What is Pokémon Go Community Day?

It's all part of Pokémon Go's ongoing efforts to encourage players to get out, discover new places, and meet new people.

From Pokémon Go:

Pokémon GO Community Day is an opportunity for Trainers around the world to meet up at their local parks to make new friends and experience what it means to be a part of this special community.

Once a month, we'll host a Pokémon GO Community Day event starring a special Pokémon, which will frequently appear around the world for just a few hours. When caught during the event, this special Pokémon will know an exclusive move. Other bonuses will be in effect during the event, such as increased XP or Stardust, and Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours.

We're constantly blown away by the passion of Pokémon GO players around the world, and we hope that each Pokémon GO Community Day will help add to the excitement of local events and meetups. Remember always to be alert and stay safe while playing and be respectful of public spaces when exploring your community. Stay tuned to our social media channels and check out the Pokémon GO Community Day event page each month to learn about that month's featured Pokémon, special bonuses, and event times.
