New Pokemon GO Community Day Event Kicks Off with a Special Pikachu

Pokemon GO Community Day Jan 2018: Special Surf 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. Each month, the event will rotate and focus on a different Pokemon for players to catch together.

Aside from given the chance to catch it, this special Pokemon will also know an exclusive move.

Pikachu will, of course, be the first special event Pokemon featured during Pokemon GO Community Day.

All things considered, Pokemon GO's inclusion of Community Days seems like a decent first step toward satisfying players who have been wanting more to do in between major events. For just a few hours that day, one Pokemon with an exclusive move will be available to catch.

It was announced today that Pokemon Go is having a "community day" event on Saturday January 20th 2018, from 10am until 1pm GMT.

Other bonuses such as increased XP, Stardust, and Lure Modules may be available during every Community Days event. During that three hour window, players will be able to find a Pikachu which knows surf in local parks. Inevitably, every time we post about new Pokemon GO stuff we attract snide comments about how the game is dead, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

The announcement mentions parks as a key location for Pokemon GO Community Day events, but it's not yet clear if these are the only places where the special character will spawn.

What better way to kick off the Pokemon Go Community Day than to feature the beloved mascot Pikachu.
