Pokémon GO Porygon Community Day is soon upon us. Here's everything you need to make the most of the Porygon Community Day.

Pokémon GO Porygon Community Day: Everything You Need to Know

Community Day September is all about Porygon. On Sept. 20 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in your local time, Porygon will be easier to find the wild. There will also be an increased chance to find a Shiny Porygon.

You'll likely run into a Shiny Porygon every 25 encounters. Porygon itself is normally rare in the wild, so Community Day is your golden opportunity to snag a few Shinies.

Porygon2 evolved during the event or for up to two hours after will learn Tri Attack upon becoming Porygon-Z. This is the first time Tri Attack has been available in Pokémon GO. It has a chance to lower the opponent's Attack and Defense stats.

Porygon needs the Upgrade item to evolve into Porygon2 and that needs the Sinnoh Stone to evolve into Porygon-Z. Both are available as rewards in the Mega Battle Challenge quest. Be sure you grab these items and save them for your Shiny Porygon.

The event will have a Special Research story that will be available in the shop for $1.

In addition to the Porygon related festivities, there will be a bundle available for 1,280 Poké Coins that comes with an Elite Fast TM, three Incense, six Lucky Eggs, and 30 Ultra Balls. The event will also give triple catch XP and triple Incense time.
