Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming June 2022 Community Day in Pokemon GO, featuring Deino!
Community Days are always one of the highlights of every month in Pokemon GO and the one for June 2022 is set to be one of the best in a while.
In case you weren’t aware, Community Days are events that highlight one Pokemon in particular and make them spawn way more often in the wild. And the Pokemon for June’s Community Day is the Dark/Dragon-type Deino.
This is some huge news because even if it might not be one of the top 10 rarest Pokemon in Pokemon GO, it is still pretty hard to find and evolve.
Taking part in this Community Day should help you evolve your Deinos into Zweilous and Hydreigon!
So without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the event.
Everything You Need to Know About Pokemon GO Deino Community Day
Deino Community Day Date & Time
Firstly, and most importantly, is the date and time. Deino Community Day will be on Saturday, June 25. This means it will take place during the Pokemon GO TCG Crossover event!
The Community Day will begin at 11 AM and end at 2 PM local time. However, there will be a couple of Community Day bonuses that will be active after the conclusion of the Community Day!
The fact that the event will be only 3 hours long will be a disappointment to many Pokemon GO players. The Mudkip Community Day Classic was ruined because it was so short so players will be hoping this won’t be the case here!
Will There Be Shiny Deino?
Luckily, Niantic has confirmed that shiny Deino will be spawning during the June 2022 Deino Community Day.
Let’s hope that Pokemon trainers have more luck finding shinies than they did in the “biggest letdown of the year” that was Pokemon GO Fest!
Event & Group Bonuses
These are the event bonuses that will be active during Deino Community Day:
- 1/4 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators during the event period.
- 2× Candy for catching Pokémon
- Incense activated during the event will last for three hours.
- One additional special trade can be made during the event and up to five hours afterward for a maximum of three for the day
- 2× chance to receive Deino Candy XL from catching Deino
- Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours.
- Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise!
- Trades made during the event and up to five hours afterward will require 50% less Stardust.
Additionally, players will be able to work together with other Pokemon trainers to get an extra bonus.
If enough Pokemon are caught from a single lure module, Zweilous will appear in the wild near the Pokestop. This will save you some Deino Candy!
Zweilous Raid Battles & Bonus Raids
Following the conclusion of Deino Community Day, Zweilous will be appearing in special 4-star Raids! And beating these Raids will give players a bonus.
However, there’s a major problem with Zweilous Raids on the Community Day!
After Zweilous is defeated, more Deinos will spawn within a radius of 300m around the Gym. This will last for 30 minutes so it’ll give you plenty of time to catch a load of them!

Hydreigon Feature Attack – Brutal Swing
Another aspect of the event worth noting is that if you evolve Zweilous into Hydreigon during or up to 5 hours after the Deino Community Day ends, it will learn a special attack – Brutal Swing.
- Brutal Swing:
- Trainer Battles: 65 power
- Gyms and raids: 65 power
Sticker & Avatar Items
Finally, there will also be some new items you can get in celebration of Deino Community Day. Firstly, spinning Pokestops during the event will give some cool Deino-themed stickers!
Additionally, you’ll be able to purchase a Deino hat from the in-game store for 150 Pokecoins.
And that’s everything you need to know about the Pokemon GO Deino Community Day in June 2022. Let’s hope you get lucky and can find some shinies!
