But that’s not all, evolving Porygon2 during the event or up to two hours afterward will grant trainers a Porygon-Z that knows Tri Attack, a move never before available in Pokemon GO. It’s time to dive into all the details and features of this upcoming event.

Date and Time

Sunday, September 20, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time.


Increased Porygon spawns: Porygon will be appearing more frequently in the wild during the event. Keep an eye out and be ready to catch this unique Pokemon. And who knows, you might even come across a Shiny Porygon, making it a truly special catch! Shiny Porygon2 and Shiny Porygon-Z will also be available.

Exclusive move: Evolving Porygon2 during the event or up to two hours afterward will reward trainers with a Porygon-Z that knows Tri Attack, marking the debut of this move in Pokemon GO. In Trainer Battles, Tri Attack has the added bonus of potentially lowering the opposing Pokemon’s Attack and Defense, making it a valuable addition to your Porygon-Z’s moveset.

Snapshot surprises: During Community Day, be sure to take a few snapshots to receive a special surprise. This feature adds a fun and interactive element to the event, encouraging trainers to engage with their surroundings and capture memorable moments.

September Community Day Box: For 1,280 PokéCoins, trainers will have the option to purchase a one-time special September Community Day Box. This box includes an Elite Fast TM, three Incenses, six Lucky Eggs, and 30 Ultra Balls, providing a wide range of useful items to enhance the Community Day experience.

Decoding Porygon Special Research: For just US$1 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency), trainers can access the September Community Day–exclusive Special Research story, Decoding Porygon. Embark on a journey with Professor Willow as he unravels the mysteries of Porygon, a Pokemon entirely made of programming code, and its unique evolutions. It is important to note that the Decoding Porygon Special Research will not include an in-game medal. Tickets for this Special Research are now available for purchase.


During Porygon Community Day, trainers will enjoy some exciting bonuses to enhance their gameplay:

3× Catch XP: Trainers will earn triple the amount of XP for every Pokemon caught during the event. This bonus is a fantastic opportunity for trainers to level up their accounts and gain valuable experience points.

Extended Incense duration: Incense activated during the event will last for an impressive three hours. This extended duration allows trainers to attract and encounter Pokemon for a longer period, increasing the chances of encountering that elusive Shiny Porygon or other exciting Pokemon in the wild.

Earning Evolution Items

To ensure trainers have the necessary items to evolve their Porygon into Porygon2 and Porygon2 into Porygon-Z, there will be several opportunities leading up to and during September Community Day:

Mega Battle Challenge: From September 11 to September 17, trainers can take part in the Mega Battle Challenge event. Completing the event’s Timed Research during this time will earn all trainers an Upgrade and a Sinnoh Stone. These two evolution items are essential for evolving Porygon and Porygon2.

Timed Research tasks: On September 20, trainers will have the chance to earn up to three Upgrades and three Sinnoh Stones by completing Timed Research tasks. This provides trainers with additional opportunities to secure the necessary evolution items throughout the Community Day event.

Decoding Porygon Special Research: Trainers who purchase a ticket for the September Community Day–exclusive Special Research story, Decoding Porygon, will also have the opportunity to earn an Upgrade and a Sinnoh Stone by completing the Special Research. This ensures that trainers who participate in the story will have access to the essential items needed for evolving their Porygon family.
