It’s Official: Pokémon Go Community Day July 2021 Will Put Tepig in the Spotlight!

The Tepig are coming! The Tepig are coming!

Pokémon Go has a monthly Community Day when they feature a specific Pokémon, complete with bonuses, features, and quests related to it. For July 2021, the Pokémon being featured is Tepig, the Fire Pig Pokémon! This is par for the course in Niantic's choices for Community Day Pokémon, in that they lean towards putting the most adorable Pokémon front and center.

Tepig Community Day will run from 11 am to 5 pm local time on Saturday, July 3, 2021. During the event, trainers can expect to see the features listed below.

  • Blast Burn. You can evolve Tepig into a Pignite and then into its last evolution Emboar to during event hours to make it automatically learn the Elite Charged Attack Blast Burn.
  • Community Day Box. As per usual, there will be a Community Day Box that can be purchased one time for 1,280 PokéCoins. This box will contain 50 Ultra Balls, 5 Incense, 5 Star Pieces, and an Elite Charged TM.
