Eevee confirmed to be the next Community Day Pokémon, Lugia returning to Raid Battles
Shiny Eevee is definitely going to be pretty popular – it has several evolution possibilities! Meanwhile, Lugia is back once more.
It appears that the next Community Day Pokémon that has been revealed is Eevee.
Trainers, get ready for a very special #PokemonGOCommunityDay weekend featuring Eevee! On Saturday, August 11, and Sunday, August 12, Eevee will appear in the wild more frequently for three hours each day. https://t.co/d9NW6x5gaF pic.twitter.com/JowKahKgV4

Eevee is a very popular Pokémon, due to being able to evolve into five (at the time of writing) different species. Given the large amount of evolutions Eevee will see increased spawns on both August 11 and August 12 for three hours each, at usual Community Day times for each region. Once more, there is a chance that players may encounter a Shiny Eevee. Along with the increased Eevee spawns, Lures will last for three hours, and catch Stardust will be tripled.
Eevee caught during the event times will know the move Last Resort. It is not currently known if there will be an easier way to choose your evolution for Eevee during the event, but now we know it won’t involve Hidden Power.
Serebii Update: Lugia is to return to Raid Battles over the weekend to coincide with Pokémon GO Fest 2018 until July 15th. Replaces Regice over the weekend https://t.co/gDbXkHSvkT pic.twitter.com/CjSpospNhD

Meanwhile, to coincide with GO Fest in Chicago, Lugia is set to return to Raid Battles worldwide for the duration of the two day event, replacing Regice. It is not yet known whether Lugia can be shiny this time around, although it is a safe bet.
Are you looking forward to catching some Eevee?
