Here is what is happening today for Galarian Zigzagoon Community Day in Pokémon GO:

  • Shiny Galarian Zigzagoon: While Galarian Zigzagoon does already have its Shiny out, but it has been incredibly rare, mostly just featured as a Hatchable Pokémon in 7KM eggs and as a raid boss in rare events. Its rarity and then turn as a Community Day feature makes it not dissimilar to Deino, though Deino was admittedly more rare.
  • Time: Saturday, August 13, 2022, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM local time
  • Community Day Attack: Evolve Galarian Zigzagoon all the way up during the event or up to five hours afterward and your Galarian Obstagoon will have the Charged Attack Obstruct.
  • Research questlines:
    • Community Day Special Research: The $1 USD research will be Field Notes: Galarian Zigzagoon and, judging from the title alone, we can see that this will continue the ongoing Rhi and GO Ultra Recon Squad storyline happening this season.
    • Community Day Timed Research: This free research will task players with catching 100 Galarian Zigzagoon for exclusive avatar items.
  • Community Day Bonuses:
    • Triple Catch Stardust
    • Double Catch Candy
    • Double chance for Trainers level 31 and up to receive XL Candy from catching Pokémon
    • Three-hour Lure Modules
    • Three-hour Incense
    • Galarian Zigzagoon will photobomb five GO Snapshots
    • Lure Module bonus: Catching enough Galarian Zigzagoon near active Lured Poké Stops will make wild Galarian Linoone spawn on the map.
    • One additional Special Trade can be made for a maximum of three traders per day, as this bonus stacks with the already active bonus trade of the Season of GO.
    • Half Stardust for trades.
  • Tier Four Raids: Bonus Battle Raids are back. We will see Galarian Linoone in Tier Four raids from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM local time. Defeating Galarian Linoone in these special raids will make more Galarian Zigzagoon pop in a 300-meter radius around the Gym for 30 minutes and those Galarian Zigzagoon will have Community Day Shiny odds.

Ultra Unlock bonuses have been added to this event, including:

  • Time for Ultra Unlock bonuses: 11 AM – 7 PM
  • Ultra Unlock bonuses:
    • Two additional Special Trades stacking on top of the existing bonus to make for four.
    • Double transfer Candy.
    • 75% Stardust discount
