The Pokémon GO Community Day is happening on June 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., local time. It's going to feature Deino, which will be appearing more frequently in the wild.

During the event, trainers able to evolve Zweilous (Deino’s Evolution) get a Hydreigon that knows the Charged Attack Brutal Swing. Brutal Swing has 65 power for Trainer Battles as well as Gym and Raids.

Event Bonuses

Of course, it won't be Pokémon GO without bonuses. In this one, the bonuses are:

  • 1/4 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators during the event period.
  • 2x chance to receive Deino Candy XL from catching Deino.
  • 2x Candy for catching Pokémon.
  • Lure Modules activated during the event last for three hours.
  • Incense activated during the event lasts for three hours.
  • Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise.
  • One additional special trade can be made during the event and up to five hours afterward for a maximum of three for the day.
  • Trades made during the event and up to five hours afterward require 50% less Stardust.

That's not all. There's also a bonus that can be unlocked by working with other trainers. If enough Pokémon are caught with help from a single Lure Module, wild Zweilous appears near the Lured PokéStop.

Special Raid Bonus

In the past, the fun will stop once Community Day is over. This time, however, trainers can look forward to more fun. Once Community Day ends, a four-star Raid featuring Zweilous is going to be available from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., local time. Once Zweilous is defeated, Deino is going to appear in a 300-meter radius around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. Those lucky enough could even encounter a Shiny one.

By the way, the Raids can only be accessed using Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes can't be used.

Special Research Story

For $1, trainers can access the Deino Community Day–exclusive Special Research story titled Field Notes: Deino. The sale of the ticket is not yet available.
