When Pokemon Go launched two summers ago, it was a bona fide phenomenon. I couldn't walk two blocks without running into someone on their phone, spinning a Photo Disc or trying to catch a Pokemon. On top of being financially successful, Pokemon Go was actually bringing people together, which was quite an achievement.
A year and a half later, Niantic is trying to revive that magic with a new monthly event called Community Day, during which players can meet up at local parks to encounter a special Pokemon. The Pokemon, which will only be available for a few hours, will know an exclusive move that was previously unavailable for that Pokemon.
