What Is The Pokémon GO Community Day August 2022 Spotlight Pokémon?


Given the August 2022 Community Day is still quite far off, we don't know which Pokémon will be in the spotlight. Niantic hasn't even announced the June 2022 spotlight Pokémon yet, which gives you an idea as to how long we still have to wait.

However, the chances are it'll be a starter Pokémon, or at least one that has several evolutions after it. That's because a key part of each Community Day is the ability to evolve the spotlight Pokémon with an exclusive move in their repertoire. For reference, previous community days have spotlighted Bulbasaur and Geodude among others, so expect a similarly low-level beginner.

That's it for our preliminary look at the Pokémon GO Community Day for August 2022! While it's still quite a way off, there's no better time than now to start getting excited for it.
