Tepig Community Day

Submit Feedback or Error

Well, we're finally going back to the starters! July is set to be a big month for Pokemon Go. Go Fest 2021 alone is going to (hopefully) put the month on the map, and give us a lot to look forward to.

So is Tepig Community Day as exciting as Go Fest, or June's Gible Community Day?, not even close.

Still, it is 3x Stardust, and it gives us a bit of a break before we rush into the main festivities of the year.
