Designed to get people out and playing together at a certain time, each limited-time event will offer featured Pokmon with a unique and exclusive move that will spawn for three hours, alongside a resource bonus - such as double XP, Stardust or Lure Modules - as incentives to get out there and playing.Developer Niantic hopes the regular event will add to the "excitement of local events and meetups", suggesting it's a good time to get your friends together at this set time, and possibly make a few new ones while out there.
Three new features have recently arrived - Friends in Pokmon Go, Gifts and Trading, as well as new July Field Research, Legendary Pokmon Regice, Alolan Pokmon Forms and 7km Eggs.If you plan to chain Eevee catches, you may also want to consider staying near a clustered group of Pok Stops with Lures enabled (which increases the creatures that spawn round them for all players), as well as using Incense (increase the spawn rate of creatures around you alone).It may also be worth stockpiling Pinap Berries and Great or Ultra Balls, too.Rare for players who don't live near lakes and oceans, Dratini is likely to be a popular choice for the second Pokmon Go Community Day, allowing you to farm the three-stage evolution Pokmon in abundance, especially since evolution Dragonite is one of the best Pokmon in the game.Draco Meteor explained Though Dratini won't have a unique move on its own, any you evolve from its second to third stage evolutions (from Dragonair into Dragonite) will learn the newly added Draco Meteor.The heightened player activity might make it easier to take on Raids and Gyms, so keep that in mind during the three hour period, as well as making savvy use of the resource multiplier in effect with things like Lucky Eggs and Stardust, too. Eevee's many evolutions are some of the most recommended of their respective type.Though they have slid down the best Pokemon rankings as the generations have gone on, Espeon is a fantastic psychic type and Flareon is up there as a strong damage dealer, while the rest are worth powering up to fill in any gaps in your offensive output.Meanwhile, double XP will benefit just about every activity in the game, but is particularly useful if you have a Lucky Egg or three spare and a handful of Pokmon ready to evolve, giving you a healthy top up of experience to help get that little bit further to the next level.Featured Pokmon and unique move: Dratini, while evolution Dragonair will learn Draco Meteor when evolving into Dragonite during event hours Resource Bonus: Triple Stardust (from catching Pokmon only - not from all sources)How useful is Dratini?That said, hanging on to a few high IV catches until Gen 4 arrives might be worth while! Though Niantic never confirms the existence of a shiny version of its Community Day Pokmon, there's been a shiny one introduced each and every time so far. And remember that Shinies don't appear in the same place for everyone like high-IV Pokmon; there's a random chance of each one that you start a battle with being shiny for you alone. Unlike other Community Day events, this is over two days, and this is almost certainly to let players attempt to get a shiny of every possible evolution.You can see them in the accompanying image (thanks vizgauss from reddit): In theory, the Eevee evolution naming trick should make this simple.
