Players will be able to participate in Pokemon-related activities and earn additional in-game benefits. Here’s what’s in store for October’s Pokemon Go Community Day.

Duskull Community Day is Here!


Duskull is the star of Pokemon Go’s October Community Day event.

The October Community Day for Pokemon Go is come. The event begins today, Oct. 9, and provides players greater chances to capture a rare ghost Pokemon as well as a few additional in-game benefits like as more Stardust and longer incense duration.

Furthermore, throughout the event, Pokemon Go will be giving unique Timed Research activities. Completing them will win you Sinnoh Stones, which you’ll need if you want to evolve this month’s highlighted Pokemon and learn October’s special event move. Here’s all you need to know about Pokemon Go’s Community Day in October 2021.

When is Pokemon Go’s October Community Day?

Pokemon Go’s October Community Day takes place on Saturday, Oct. 9, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in your local time zone.

October’s featured Pokemon: Duskull

The ghost-type Pokemon Duskull is the focus of this month’s Community Day. Wild Duskull will appear considerably more often than normal throughout the event, giving you more opportunities to capture the ghost Pokemon and stock up on Duskull candies.

During October’s Community Day, you’ll be able to meet Shiny Duskull in addition to ordinary Duskull. This variety will be somewhat uncommon, although using an Incense will boost your chances of meeting one.

October Community Day move: Shadow Ball

If you can get Dusclops (Duskull’s evolved form) to evolve into Dusknoir on October’s Community Day, it will learn the ghost-type Charged Attack Shadow Ball naturally. Dusknoir can’t ordinarily learn this move in Pokemon Go, so October’s Community Day is your only opportunity to obtain it. Dusclops may develop and learn Shadow Ball until 7 p.m. local time, two hours after the event concludes.

October Community Day bonuses

Aside from higher Duskull spawning, there will be a few more in-game incentives available for October’s Community Day. Any Incense or Lure Modules you use during the event will be active for three hours instead of the normal two. In addition, capturing Pokemon will award you three times the standard amount of Stardust.

October Community Day bundle and Research tasks

A special item bundle will be on sale in Pokemon Go’s in-game shop during October’s Community Day. The bundle costs 1,280 PokeCoins and includes the following items:

  • 50 Ultra Balls
  • 4 Incense
  • 4 Star Pieces
  • 1 Elite Charged TM

Pokémon Go’s October Community Day is a spooky one, as Trainers around the world will be able to catch Duskull with an exclusive move for Dusknoir – and if they’re lucky, they might get a Shiny variant!

Community Days are monthly activities that highlight a single Pokémon. Along with enhanced spawn rates, there are event-only Special Research assignments to perform, as well as perks like as double XP and uncommon moves to unlock.

Duskull, the headliner of the October 2021 Community Day, was initially presented in Gen III and also starred in the ‘Camp Pikachu’ animated short. The Ghost-type Pokemon is designed to look like the grim reaper, making it ideal for the Halloween season.

Following the lead of previous Community Days, there will be an event-exclusive move when you develop Duskull and Dusclops during or soon after the event. Here’s all you need to know about the Community Day in October 2021.


Duskull and its shiny version will be available in October.

Pokemon Go Duskull Community Day start date & time

The October Community Day event will take place on Saturday, October 9, 2021, from 11am to 5pm in each Trainer’s local time, meaning you won’t need to worry about converting time zones.

Pokemon Go Duskull Community Day exclusive move

When you evolve Duskull (and its evolution Dusclops) into Dusknoir during the October 2021 Community Day or up to two hours after it ends, Dusknoir will know the event-exclusive move Shadow Ball.

This is a powerful Ghost-type Charged Attack that Dusknoir won’t be able to learn outside of the event unless you have an Elite Charged TM, so it’s definitely worth taking the time to evolve one now.

Can Duskull be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

Shiny Duskull has a cool red color scheme.

The good news is that Shiny Duskull is available in Pokemon Go, along with its evolved forms. It made its debut during the game’s 2017 Halloween celebrations and has an eye-catching red color scheme.

Shiny variations aren’t easy to catch, and they’ll only ever show up at random, but the good news is that there will be an increased chance of finding a Shiny Duskull during the October 2021 Community Day.
