The Community Days are the key events of the Pokémon GO calendar. Each month, players will meet others, continue completing their Pokédex, but the most important feature of the event is the collectible monster of the month. Such monsters are set loose in great numbers for at least three hours on any day of the weekend. It is a great opportunity for fans to fully evolve the featured Pokémon while sticking around for three hours and make use of great perks and boosts.

Pokémon GO Allows Votes for Community Day

We have good and bad news; bad news first—the Community Day planned for Sunday, March 15 has been postponed in response to Coronavirus pandemic. The Pokémon GO team has not announced the rescheduled date yet.

Now it is time for good news— Niantic and Pokemon Go have brought back the Community day voting system. Players will need to vote for one out of four options. The voted Pokémon for the February Community Day was Rhyhorn, which beat Vulpix, Machop, and Dratini. Trainers were also able to obtain up to 10 Sinnoh Stones along with 3× Catch Stardust as a bonus. The event ran from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time in the northern hemisphere, and from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time in the southern hemisphere.

Abra was the chosen one for the postponed March event. Few Miners have revealed the voting list for the next three events but the Pokémon GO team is yet to make the official announcement. The possible voting options are:

  • Weedle, Gastly, Squirtle, and Weedle for April and May Community Days;
  • Charmander, Porygon, Grimer, and Caterpie for June and July Pokémon GO monthly events;
  • Starly, Bulbasaur, Exeggcute, and Magikarp for the August and September episodes.
