Early this year, Niantic introduced a special Event known as the "Pokémon Go" community day event. This is a monthly mini-event that encourages players to meet in their local community parks to play together worldwide. The "Pokémon Go" developer hopes the event will make local events and meetups interesting. The community day event features a special Pokémon offering an exclusive move for a limited time. Also, it offers resource bonuses such as Stardust, double XP or Lure Modules.

The previous event was exciting and successful

The first community day, which took place on January 20th, 2018 featured Pikachu as its special Pokémon.

Niantic increased the chance of finding a Shiny Variant colored Pokémon, which is super rare. Interestingly, the yellow Pokémon Pikachu knew Surf as a charge move. The event also offered some bonuses such as Double XP and 3-hours Lure Modules. Many of the Trainers who remained active for the 3 hours got the most out of the event.

What the second event will feature

The second "Pokémon Go" Community Day is coming up this month on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. This second event will feature the Three-Stage Evolution Pokémon Dratini, which could possibly get a Shiny Variant, although its exclusive move is not yet known. Even if "Pokémon Go" doesn’t feature the Shiny Variant of Dratini, this will be a great opportunity for Trainers to farm a lot of them.

For those who want to evolve their Dratini into Dragonair then to Dragonite, this event will be very appealing and useful for them. The Community Day will offer players bonuses such as 3hours Lure Modules and 3 times the amount of Stardust instead of XP for the limited time it will last. The Triple Stardust will be offered from catching Pokémon only, not from all sources.

After the previous Community event, the Community Day page broke down the teams that caught the most Pokémon. Team Mystic topped the list followed by Team Valour, then Team Instinct. Players can’t wait to see the team that would top the list after the event. Perhaps every team would remain active for the duration of the event.

In Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India, the event will start at 10 am and end at 1 pm. In North America, South America and Greenland, the event will start from 11 am and end at 2 pm PST, 2 pm to 5 pm EST while in the Asia Pacific, it will start from 12 pm and end at 3 pm JST.

Players are complaining that the three-hour duration of the event is too restrictive but we don't think Niantic is going to do anything about that. Based on the time released for the upcoming Community Day event, the will still last for 3 hours.
