Pokémon GO Community Day (Japanese: コミュニティ・デイ Community Day) is a monthly in-game event in Pokémon GO that features specific Pokémon through limited-time increased spawn rates and obtainable exclusive moves for six hours (from 11 A.M to 5 P.M local time). Recent Community Day events have allowed players to obtain these exclusive moves up to two hours after the regular time window.

During these events, different resource bonuses occur, such as increased XP gain or decreased Egg distances. Field Research tasks specific to the Community Day event are also available during the three hour period.

During the Community Day event, the featured Pokémon is much more likely to be Shiny than usual (at about a 1/25 chance[1]); additionally, the Community Day event is usually the first time the Pokémon's Shiny coloration is available.
