Pokemon Go's First Community Day Event Will Feature Surfing Pikachu

Pokemon GO Community Day Jan 2018 Special Surf Pikachu

Additionally, Pokemon GO Community Day is going to be a monthly event, and the whole idea behind it is to get people out to parks and other places where Pokemon can be found, and both special Pokemon will be available to be caught and the Pokemon you catch will know an exclusive move for battling. "Other bonuses will be in effect during the event, such as increased XP or Stardust, and Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours". It feels a little like Niantic is trying to recapture the insane initial days of Pokemon Go by encouraging the community out into public spaces to try to capture the special 'mons on the day.

This is a smart move on Niantic's part, as the Pokemon Go Community Day creates a special limited event for players to look forward to each month regardless of where they live. The objective of the event is to encourage players to meet up at local parks with other trainers and experience the full benefits of being part of the Pokemon Go community. The first one is January 20th, and will bring the community together to catch a special Pokemon every single month. In addition, there will be bonuses granted to all players during the few hours that the Pokemon is available to be caught.

Check out the full post on the Pokemon Go site. It's possible that Pokemon Go will limiting Surfing Pikachu spawns to areas designated as a park in the OpenStreetsMap database. We're in the Asia-Pacific region, so our Community Day runs from 2pm to 5pm Sydney time (Niantic announced the time as as 12pm - 3pm Japan time, or GMT +9). The first event will begin January 20th at the following times...

Pokemon Go players have clamored for more things to do in between major events, and this seems like a good first step. We'll see how this first event goes in just over a week!
