Swablu has been confirmed as the featured Pokemon for May Community Day

The Pokémon Go Community Day in May 2021 is just around the corner and excitement is starting to build among trainers.

Each month, Niantic will host a special event, typically on a Sunday, where a specific Pokémon will be much more common during certain hours of the day, with the chances of picking up a shiny version being much greater than usual.

While the schedule for the events in May have already been released, it is not yet known which Pokémon will be featured. Find out more about the events here.

With this comes timed research for the day only that can bring some elusive awards such as Ggg Incubators Golden Razz Berries, Sinnoh Stones and plenty more.

Nothing has been officially announced at this time from Niantic in which case we will update this article when details emerge.
