Pokémon Go revealed that for the September Community Day, the featured Pokémon is going to be none other than Porygon. Porygon beat out Charmander, Caterpie, and Grimer in a poll on developer Niantic's Twitter account. The Community Day itself is scheduled for September 20 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, local time.

For those interested in joining, here are some features of this month’s community day:

  • Porygon is going to appear frequently in the wild.
    • Those lucky enough may encounter a Shiny one!
  • Trainers can evolve Porygon2, which is the evolved form of Porygon, during the event or up to two hours afterward to get a Porygon-Z.
    • This Pokémon knows Tri Attack and this is the first time the attack is going to be available in the game.
    • In Trainer Battles, Tri Attack has a chance of lowering the opposing Pokémon’s Attack and Defense.
  • Take a few snapshots during Community Day to get a surprise.
  • There’s going to be a special one-time-purchase September Community Day Box available for 1,280 PokéCoins.
    • It’s going to feature:
      • Elite Fast TM
      • Three Incense
      • Six Lucky Eggs
      • 30 Ultra Balls
  • For $1, Trainers can access the September Community Day–exclusive Special Research story, Decoding Porygon.
    • Work alongside Professor Willow as he learns all about Porygon—a Pokémon made completely out of programming code—and its subsequent Evolutions.
    • Stay tuned for when tickets for the Decoding Porygon Special Research story go live.
    • Tickets are nonrefundable.
    • This Special Research is not going to include an in-game medal.

For the September Community Day, bonuses include 3X Catch XP. In addition, incense activated during the event is going to last for three hours.

Items to Evolve Porygon

In order to evolve Porygon to Porygon 2, and Porygon2 to Porygon-Z, Trainers are going to need some items. They can get their hands on these items in three different ways.

The first is that for the week of September 11 to September 17, there's going to be a Mega Battle where Trainers can earn an Upgrade. In the same week, there's also going to be a Timed Research that rewards a Sinnoh Stone by completing it.

The second way to get evolve items is on the Community Day itself on September 20. By completing Timed Research Tasks, Trainers can earn as many as three Upgrades and three Sinnoh Stones

Finally, the third way is to join the Decoding Porygon Special Research story. Completing this one earns Trainers an Upgrade and a Sinnoh Store. However, a ticket is needed to be able to join this activity.
