AR smartphone game Pokémon GO announced a two-day Eevee Community Day for August. As is customary for Community Day in Pokémon GO, the weekend-long event will include the different Eevee-lutions, as well as a slew of additional Eevee-related benefits and activities.
The Dialga and Palkia Pokémon GO event, which was only announced yesterday, looks to be running concurrently with this Community Day. The event will be split into two parts, with the first starting on July 23 and ending on August 3.
Part two will begin on August 6 and run through August 17th. Trainers will not only be able to capture two-thirds of the creation triad, but they will also get the opportunity to catch all of the Eevee-lutions and teach them special moves.
Pokémon GO published a new blog post earlier today describing Eevee’s forthcoming two-day celebration. Evolving Eevee into any of its subsequent forms will grant it an exclusive move starting on Friday, August 13, and ending on Monday, August 16, 2021.
Vaporeon will learn Scald, Jolteon will learn Zap Cannon, Flareon will learn Superpower, Espeon will learn Shadow Ball, Umbreon will learn Psychic, Leafeon will learn Bullet Seed, Glaceon will learn Water Pulse, and Sylveon will learn Psyshock.
The statement also adds that any Eevee caught or hatched during the aforementioned era will already know the move Last Resort. There will also be special timed research that will reward trainers with both a mossy and glacial lure module necessary to unlock Leafeon and Glaceon, respectively.

There is also a unique study narrative, “What You Choose to Be,” that trainers may access for $1 USD Saturday and Sunday of the event. Eevee will emerge more frequently at this period, and the possibilities of encountering a shiny will be increased.
And of course, there are the normal, universal Community Day bonuses such eggs requiring a quarter of their usual hatch distance, incense lasting three hours, and lure modules lasting three hours as well.
Online, fan response to the announcement is mainly divided, considering Eevee has already had its own Community Day. On the other hand, trainers who missed the first Eevee Community Day are ecstatic to get another opportunity, as Eevee is one of the most popular Pokémon. Additionally, several of the Eevee-lutions’ special moves, like Flareon and Umbreon’s, may be used in PvP battles.
While a repetition of Community Day may not be on everyone’s wish list, there are always the Ultra Unlock events starring Dialga and Palkia to look forward to. The last Pokémon GO celebration was extremely successful, indicating that as COVID-19 pandemic limitations are lifted (in certain parts of the world), Pokémon GO trainers are keen to get back to exploring and capturing their beloved pokémon.
