Pokémon Go December 2023 Community Weekend event guide

As 2023 comes to an end, Pokémon Go is gearing up for a massive Community Day Weekend event. This year’s event will feature all of the Pokémon that were highlighted in Community Days throughout the year, with the added bonus of including some Pokémon from 2022.

The event is scheduled to take place on Dec. 16 and 17, with most of the perks active from 2-5 p.m. in your local time. In addition to the standard Community Day features, there are some extra perks, such as special trades and evolving to obtain special moves, that will take place outside of the event period.

For avid collectors of shiny Pokémon or those who may have missed out on previous Community Days, this event presents a golden opportunity. It also allows trainers to capture powerful Pokémon like Conkeldurr and Blastoise.
