Niantic Announces Pokemon Go Community Day Event Featuring Surfing Pikachu

Pokemon Go Community Day

What better way to kick off the Pokemon Go Community Day than to feature the beloved mascot Pikachu. The objective of the event is to encourage players to meet up at local parks with other trainers and experience the full benefits of being part of the Pokemon Go community.

Community Day is created to engage the massive worldwide Pokemon Go community and keep them involved in the game by offering special Pokemon for a short period of time. Also, as mentioned earlier, other bonuses will be in effect during the event, including increased XP or Stardust, as well as Lure Modules activated during the event, which will last for three hours.

For January's event, Niantic has already confirmed the special Pokemon will be Surfing Pikachu.

Starting this month, Pokémon Go players will be able to participate in monthly events that will bring out special Pokémon with exclusive moves.
