Pokémon GO: July Community Day – Event Bonuses, Special Research, & Featured Pokémon

A Starling Community Day!

Shiny Pokémon are very sought after, so it's no wonder why Community Days are some of the most exciting events in Pokémon GO. Community Days give players a greatly increased chance of encountering one of these elusive Pokémon. July 2022's Community Day will feature Starly, the Generation Four Starling Pokémon. The event will take place on July 17, 2022, from 11am to 2pm local time.

Shiny Starly's color palette is pretty similar to its original, with the Shiny variant of the Pokémon sporting a slightly lighter tone of brown in its feathers. The Pokémon retains a similar look when it is evolved into its two following evolutions, Staravia and Staraptor.

If players evolve a Starly into a Staraptor during the Community Day hours, or up to five hours after, the Pokémon will know the move Gust. This is a Flying-type move that players can unleash against opponents in Raid Battles or Trainer Battles.
