Trainers across the world can celebrate the Pokémon GO Community Day every month with the first event kicking off later in January. Niantic will release a special Pokémon for a few hours during Community Day, as well as extra bonuses that will run for the duration of the event.

"We’re constantly blown away by the passion of Pokémon GO players around the world, and we hope that each Pokémon GO Community Day will help add to the excitement of local events and meetups," announces the Pokémon GO team. "Pokémon GO Community Day is an opportunity for Trainers around the world to meet up at their local parks to make new friends and experience what it means to be a part of this special community.
