Naintic introduced the Pokémon for Community Day in Pokémon GO in August 2022. MeinMMO tells you which monster awaits you and which bonuses you can use during the Community Day.
This is now known: For Community Day in August 2022, Galarian Zigzachs will be the focus. The Dark and Normal-type Pokémon will be more common in the wild, and you can even find it in its Shiny form (as “Shiny”).
Unlike the traditional Zigzachs, the Galar form has some peculiarities. You can read more about this in our special: The Galar monsters in Pokémon GO: They can, that’s how you get them
If you evolve the Pokémon into Barrikadax, it can learn the exclusive Charged Attack Blocker. To do this, you must evolve a Galar Geradaks into Barrikadax within the event period or up to 5 hours after. The Community Day also has other bonuses in store for you.

Special post-Community Day raid bonus with Galar Zigzachs
As in the Community Day with Staralili in June, there will be a raid bonus immediately after the event period. This applies on Saturday, August 13 from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time.
If you defeat the Galar Geradaks that appear there in the special level 4 raids, wild Galar Zigzachs will appear in a radius of 300 meters for 30 minutes. These also have a chance to spawn as Shiny.
You need a Raid Pass or a Premium Battle Pass to join. Joining with remote raid passes is not possible.
Limited research for Community Day
From 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., in addition to the Community Day bonuses, you will have access to a limited-time research that requires you to catch 100 Galar Zigzachs. You will receive the following items as a reward:
- Barrikadax hat
- Barrikadax goggles
- Barrikadax gloves
- Barricadex pose
If you cannot solve the tasks on C-Day, the cosmetics will also be available for purchase in the shop afterwards.
Are you already looking forward to Community Day in August, or is the weather just too hot for you to tour the area at the moment? Already in July, the heat is causing problems for many coaches – so much so that they are now demanding that the developers adapt the game to protect the players:
