The upcoming community day will be taking place on Sunday, 18 September 2022 and will start at 11:00 am local time, ending at 2:00 pm local time.
This means that wherever you are in the world when it hits 11:00 am for you the community day will begin, allowing you to complete everything the day has to offer.
*UPDATE* September 2022’s Featured Pokémon is Roggenrola
Despite many fans speculating that either a Kalos starter or Pokémon related to the Legends Arceus game would be getting it’s time in the sun, the September community day for Pokémon GO will feature Generation 5’s Roggenrola
Introduced as a semi-reboot variant to the iconic Geodude line, Roggenrola has become a bit of a cult favourite in the Pokémon community, mostly due to its final evolution Gigalitha and its striking design.
Community Day Special Research
Every community day also comes with a special set of research tasks that can be purchased from the store for $1 USD / £0.78.
The storyline will have four stages, each with a set of tasks for you to complete and be rewarded for. Rewards will include your standard items like Pokeballs, stardust and berries but will also include some encounters with the featured Pokemon of that month.
There is usually an ongoing set of free daily challenges for you to complete as well, often having a global effort to unlock some additional bonuses.

Community Day Shiny Odds
According to research done by The Silph Road, the shiny odds for Pokémon GO community days is 1 in 25 encounters which makes coming across a shiny Pokemon quite likely.
This doesn’t mean that it’s guaranteed, however as it’s still down to chance but if you’re lucky, you should find yourself with a nice new shiny for your collection.
Roggenrola is also a shiny that many players will want to be getting their hands on as well, with Shiny Gigalith being one of the most popular shinies in all of Pokémon due to the lovely blue colour of the crystals
