When is Pokémon Go’s July Community Day?
It has already been confirmed that Gastly will be the featured Pokémon this month for Pokémon Go’s July Community Day. The players have been hoping to find out more about the upcoming event, and now we have some more details. Niantic just put out details about when the July Community Day will take place, and what bonuses folks can get for taking part.
Niantic ran the poll to decide who the next batch of spotlights for Community Day would be, and the results were clear. Weedle was the clear frontrunner, and got chosen for June, and now it’s Gastly’s turn to get an event as they came in second. The event will run on July 19, and will go from 11 am to 5 pm in your local time zone. During that time, you have plenty of stuff to do.
The boosted CPs will be there, and of course, the increased Gastly spawn rate is also going to be a thing too. This is great for those that want to farm Gastly captures to max out potential CP rewards. And like other Community Day events, there will be a special move that Gastly will know, Shadow Punch. But keep in mind that this special move is only available during the July 2020 Community Day for this Pokémon. The trick is that you will need to evolve Gastly into Gengar to unlock this move, keep that in mind.
And also, there will be Egg buffs as well. You will only have to walk 1/4th the normal distance to hatch an Egg during the event. This makes it a great time to hatch those much tougher 10-kilometer or 7-kilometer eggs.
Niantic will also include some special Research Event called the Great Gastly. Players will complete tasks for the duration of July Community Day, but you do have to buy into the event. The pass for the special Great Gastly event will cost $1 and will be available ahead of the actual event.
