Community Day Classic is a rerun event in Pokémon Go that allows players to experience one of the previous Community Days again. For three hours, players will have the chance to catch one specific species of Pokémon which will take over virtually all Pokémon spawns. The Pokémon featured in the event will have increased Shiny rates, and when it's evolved during the event, it will learn a special Legacy move.
