Pokémon GO Community Day August 2021: Start Dates, Eevee, Mega Evolutions And Everything You Need To Know

Eevee will be the featured Pokémon during August's Pokémon GO Community Day.

Pokemon GO Community Day returns for August and this time there will be one big difference.

The free-to-play augmented reality (AR) mobile game continues to be one of the highest-grossing titles on the market today, having collaborated with Japanese gaming giants Nintendo and the use of GPS to live life as a Pokemon trainer.

There are now almost 1000 different types of Pokemon to capture to complete your Pokedex having originally started with just 150 back in 2016, and the game has seen some drastic changes for the better since then.

As the warmer months continue to bring out trainers up and down the UK, more bonuses and features will be up for grabs during the eighth month of the year, which you can find below.
