The Pokémon to be featured during Pokémon Go‘s August Community Day has been revealed, and it will bring a helpful change to the event’s typical format.
According to Niantic’s latest blog post, Generation I’s Eevee will be the star of next month’s Community Day. Unlike all previous iterations of the monthly event, though, trainers will have two separate chances to participate. On both Saturday, August 11th and Sunday, August 12th, the Normal-type Pokémon will spawn more commonly worldwide during the hours of 11 a.m. PT to 2 p.m. PT.
Previous Community Days have only taken place on one day for three hours, which means players should have an even better chance to find the rare color-swapped shiny version of Eevee. While it’s unclear if all future Community Days will offer two days of spawns, it’s likely the Generation I Pokémon will receive special treatment due to its many evolutions.
In the mainline games, Eevee currently has eight separate evolutions. While only five of them are available in Pokémon Go—Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Umbreon, and Espeon—it’s possible two more could arrive soon. Niantic recently teased the next generation of Pokémon from the Sinnoh region might be coming to the mobile game as soon as the upcoming Pokémon Go Fest 2.0. If it does, both Glaceon and Leafeon will be added to the mix.
In addition to the increased spawns, the August Community Day will also offer three times more Stardust for every catch, as well as a special move for Eevee that will be revealed at a later date. Perhaps some of its evolutions will also learn a new attack as part of the event.
Pokémon Go is available for iOS and Android.
