Trainers need to know what time the Community Day event in Pokemon GO starts to get in on the action.

Community Day is one of the most popular events available to players of Niantic Labs’ augmented-reality mobile title, Pokemon GO. The event only occurs once a month and features a specific Pokemon at the forefront. For the duration of Community Day, trainers can enjoy a host of bonuses including longer incense and lure effects. Additionally, the featured Pokemon will appear much more frequently in the wild—and may just take over raids.

Pokemon caught and evolved during or immediately following the event may be guaranteed to learn a unique charged move.

Pokémon GO Community Day Start Time

Pokémon GO Community Day typically starts around 11 a.m. local time. It ends at around 5 p.m. local time. This is done to provide each region with ample and identical time to take advantage of the event—about six hours from beginning to end.

Trainers can enjoy all bonuses of the event for its entire duration for their region. Other effects running alongside Community Day can stack depending on the effect and its individual timing. However, it’s rare that actual events, themselves, will stack.

For example, trainers likely won’t have to worry about participating in both a Community Day and a Raid Hour or Spotlight Hour within the same day.
