Deino to be the featured Pokémon for Pokémon GO's June Community Day

Niantic has announced that the Irate Pokémon, Deino will be the featured Pokémon for June 2022's Pokémon GO Community Day. During this event, Deino will be appearing more frequently in the wild, and its Shiny variant will also be available. The event will be held on June 25th, from 11:00am to 2:00pm local time.

Zweilous that are evolved into Hydreigon during the event, or within two hours after it concludes, will learn the Charged Attack Brutal Swing. This move has 65 power in Trainer Battles, Gyms, and in raids.

A Community Day-exclusive Special Research story, Field Notes: Deino, will be available for purchase at US$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in each local currency). It can also be gifted to a friend.

The following event bonuses will also be active throughout the event:
  • 2× Candy for catching Pokémon
  • 2× chance to receive Deino Candy XL from catching Deino
  • Incense and Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours
  • 1/4 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators during the event period
  • Players can take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise
  • 1 additional special trade can be made during the event and up to five hours afterward for a maximum of three for the day
  • Trades made during the event and up to five hours afterward will require 50% less Stardust.
  • Players can get event-themed stickers by spinning PokéStops, opening Gifts, and purchasing them from the in-game shop
  • A Deino Hat is available for purchase in the in-game shop for 150 PokéCoins
  • Bonuses for groups: If enough Pokémon are caught with help from a single Lure Module, wild Zweilous will appear near the Lured PokéStop.
An extra event has also been announced, which featured bonus Raid Battles from 2:00pm to 7:00pm local time. This event will feature special Four-Star Raids. When Trainers defeat the Zweilous Raid Boss, more Deino will appear in a 300-meter radius around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. These Raids can only be accessed with Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used. The same Shiny odds as the 3-hour event will apply.
