After a measure of success throughout the year, an all-inclusive Pokemon GO Community Day is set to arrive for an entire weekend at the end of November according to a news post on the game's official website.

If you haven't yet participated in a Pokemon GO Community Day, it's a pretty straightforward event. A number of the adorable little creatures will be available for a limited time out in the wild at certain times. Trainers will have the opportunity to catch creatures that are otherwise difficult to get your hands on. The game has had more than its fair share of events; a recent Halloween event was datamined and eventually confirmed as real by a later announcement.

 

This particular Pokemon GO Community Day is more special than usual - it's set to combine the rosters from all of the year's events into one extravaganza. The following Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild:

 
 

    • Beldum
    • Bulbasaur
    • Charmander
    • Chikorita
    • Cyndaquil
    • Dratini
  • Eevee
  • Larvitar
  • Mareep
  • Pikachu
  • Squirtle

 
 

Additionally, special moves previously featured during the Pokemon GO Community Day events in 2018 will be available for a second time.

A number of bonuses will also be taking effect for a short period of time. Trainers will be able to earn twice as much experience and Stardust for catching critters. The effectiveness of incubators - critical tools that allow you to hatch eggs - will also be doubled during this time. Here are the relevant dates & times when the bonuses will be in effect:

  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: December 1, 2018, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM UTC (GMT +0)
  • The Americas and Greenland: December 1, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. EST (GMT −5)
  • Asia-Pacific: December 2, 2018, from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM JST (GMT +9)
Please do pay special mind to the listed timezones for each of the above dates as they are different for each region. You can convert it to your local time at a site like timeanddate.com.

Aside from this event, trainers with a proclivity for filling up their storage have a bit of good news: the storage size for Pokemon has increased to a maximum of 2,000 as reported on the game's Twitter official account.

Of course, you'll have to buy upgrades in order to take advantage of that additional space. The addition of new Pokemon have certainly increased the need for players to transfer away their extras and this increase in storage size is surely good news for all.

The Snorlax-sized Pokemon GO Community Day will be taking place from November 30, 2018, at 4:00 PM EST until December 2, 2018, at 2:00 PM EST. Happy hunting!

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
