Pokémon GO December 2021 Community Day

The December Community Day is always a big event in the Pokémon GO calendar, due to its recurring theme of featuring all past Community Day Pokémon. 2021 will be no different, and will offer you the chance of catching Pokémon featured in Community Days from 2020 as well as 2021.

Here’s everything you should know about the Pokémon GO December 2021 Community Day.


Pokémon GO December 2021 Community Day

Pokémon GO December 2021 Community Day Date/Time

The December Community Day takes place on both Saturday, December 18th and Sunday, December 19th from 11am until 5pm local time.


Pokémon GO December 2021 Community Day Bonuses

There are a number of different bonuses that will be live during the event hours. These are as follows:

– Incense will last for three hours
– Lure Modules will last for three hours
– Eggs placed in Incubators with hatch in ½ the time
– Catch XP will be doubled
– Catch Stardust will be doubled

As an extra bonus, from 1pm on Friday 17th December until 11.59pm local time on Sunday 19th December, you will also be able to do one extra special trade every day, and each trade you do will cost 25% less stardust. Special trades are used for Pokémon not in your Pokédex, or for Legendary or Shiny forms, so this will offer you the chance to do six over the weekend instead of the usual three. A great chance to fill your Pokédex up a bit, or grab that shiny Pokémon off a friend.

On Sunday, appearing more often are:
