by Shaun Cichacki

Players hoping to jump into the fun of Community Day one more time before the year comes to an end in Pokemon GO have the ultimate chance to participate once more. Gamers have been eagerly anticipating every Community Day Event this year, as they are not only an excellent way to get Shiny Pokemon but can also bring players together with new friends.

However, this Community Day is unlike any that we’ve had this year. Rather than featuring one Pokemon, in particular, it’s a smorgasbord of all Pokemon from earlier events. This means gamers that may have missed out on a Community Day earlier this year will finally have their chance to get their favorite Pokemon! Let’s find out all of the details we need to know!

Gamers hoping to jump in on the fun for this final Community Day event will have a total of two days to jump in on the fun. With multiple Pokemon available each day, players will want to clear some time on December 17th and 18th from 2:00pm until 5:00pm Local Time on each day.

Players jumping in on the fun will also have a chance to jump right into some excellent bonuses that will help them push their trainer further than ever before, including:

  • x2 XP for catching Pokemon
