Pokemon GO's Community Day in August 2021 features Eevee's evolutions and special in-game gifts. Players can enter this event during a weekend and gain special Eevee-inspired stickers.

August's Community Day event will begin on Aug. 13 at 1 p.m. and last until Aug. 16 at 1 p.m. EST. Players can evolve Eevee during this event and gain a Pokemon that knows a special move. Additionally, if players want to acquire Sylveon, this Pokemon will need lesser hearts than usual in order to evolve.

Trainers can also gain Eevee-inspired stickers, which can be obtained by spinning PokeStops, revealing gifts, and buying them from the game's store.

Here's a list of special moves for every Eevee evolution:

  • Jolteon- Zap Cannon
  • Vaporeon- Scald
  • Flareon- Superpower
  • Espeon- Shadow Ball
  • Umbreon- Psychic
  • Glaceon- Water Pulse
  • Leafeon- Bullet Seed
  • Sylveon- Psyshock

When evolving Eevee into Sylveon, players will only need seven hearts instead of 70. Trainers can also enter a Timed Research quest which lets players gain a Mossy and Glacial Lure Module.

Trainers can also purchase a Community Day Box for 1,280 PokeCoins, which includes 50 Ultra Balls, an Elite Fast TM, five Incense items, and an Elite Charged TM.
