December 2022 Community Day — Catch ’em All and Get Your Community Day Fill: The Final Pokémon Bonanza of 2022!

Are you ready for the final Pokémon Community Day of 2022? This year’s event will take place over two days: Saturday, December 17, 2022 and Sunday, December 18, 2022. During this time, Pokémon featured in Community Day events in 2022 will appear more frequently in the wild and in Timed Research, and Pokémon featured in Community Day events throughout 2021 will hatch from eggs and appear in raids and Timed Research. It’s a great opportunity to catch any Pokémon from previous Community Days that you may have missed.

During the event, trainers can enjoy a variety of bonuses. These include 2x XP for catching Pokémon, 2x Stardust for catching Pokémon, a 50% reduction in the distance required to hatch eggs, 2x Candy for catching Pokémon, a 2x chance for trainers level 31 and up to receive XL Candy when catching Pokémon, 3-hour Lure Modules, 3-hour Incense (excluding Daily Adventure Incense), and the ability to make one additional Special Trade per day, for a maximum of two per day.

Each day of the event will feature a different set of Pokémon that will have increased spawn rates from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. On Saturday, December 17, 2022, trainers can catch Sandshrew, Alolan Sandshrew, Alolan Geodude, Hoppip, Spheal, and Stufful. On Sunday, December 18, 2022, trainers can catch Teddiursa, Galarian Zigzagoon, Starly, Roggenrola, Litwick, and Deino. Additionally, Bulbasaur, Dratini, and Mudkip may appear on either day, with a chance of encountering a Shiny version.

When evolving certain Pokémon during the event, trainers may also be able to obtain a Pokémon with a special attack. For example, evolving Ivysaur (Bulbasaur’s evolution) during the event will result in a Venusaur with the Charged Attack Frenzy Plant. Dragonite evolved from Dragonair during the event will know the Charged Attack Outrage, and Espeon evolved from Eevee during the event will know the Fast Attack Last Resort. See the complete list below.

You can also obtain 2022 Community Day stickers by spinning PokéStops, opening gifts, or purchasing them from the in-game shop.

And, it looks like there’s another special research story coming up for the December Community Day in 2022. For just $1.00 (or the equivalent in your local currency), you can access the exclusive content. If you don’t feel like purchasing a ticket yourself, you can always try to get one gifted to you by a friend who has reached the “Great Friends” level or higher. Just keep in mind that there are some restrictions on gifting and tickets are nonrefundable. Also, it’s worth noting that this special research will not include an in-game medal.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to catch some rare and powerful Pokémon! The Community Day event will take place on Saturday, December 17, 2022 and Sunday, December 18, 2022 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, with most bonuses active from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. local time. Happy catching!
