Eevee Community Day, or rather, days, are taking place this weekend, on August 11 and 12, and features shiny Eevee, 3x Stardust and an exclusive Last Resort move for Eevee and all evolutions (for all Eevee evolved until August 13, 1 PM PDT). Without further ado, here’s our comprehensive guide to the August Community Day in Pokemon GO.

Eevee Community Day takes place on August 11 (Saturday) and 12 (Sunday) at following times around the globe:
|Europe, Middle East, Africa, India: 10am to 1pm UK or BST, 11am to 2pm CET|
|North America, South America and Greenland: 11am to 2pm PST, 2pm to 5pm EST|

This time around, you do not need to evolve all of your Eevee before the event spawns end: Niantic has announced (source) that all Eevee evolved before August 13 (Monday) 1pm PDT will receive Last Resort. You are free to enjoy both days, transfer low IVs afterwards and then evolve the ones you want on Monday.
Here’s a quick overview of the Shiny Eevee and the rest of shiny Eevee family in Pokemon GO. We don’t know about you, but shiny Espeon looks amazing, not to mention Umbreon’s absolute beauty! Don’t worry, in the next section we go into details on how many Eevee you need to catch to get all of them reliably.

Most of our readers are interested in how many shiny Eevee they need to catch in order to get one of the each shiny evolutions. Luckily, a redditor by the name Bad_Neighbour, has done a series of calculations and concluded that you need the following number of shiny Eevee:
If you combine that with the average chance to get a shiny during a Community Day event (1 in 23 – 25 event Pokemon), you end up with the following number of Eevee that you need to catch in order to have a shiny version of every Gen 1 and Gen 2 evolution (credits go to NotATakenNameOfUser who wrote a C++ program to calculate this):
Yes, 400 Eevee in two days is your target catch rate during this weekend if you aim to get a shiny version of every Eeveelution. If you want two extras for Leafeon and Glaceon, aim for 550ish.
Eevee Community Day features triple Stardust rewards from catching Pokemon, which means there is one item we need in particular: Star Piece! Star Piece will allow you to collect insane amounts of Stardust in combination with Lures, Incense and GO Plus.
Eevee is boosted by Partly Cloudy weather and we’re hoping that you’ll be lucky enough to have that weather during the event – not only it helps with sunburns, it also helps with saving Stardust!
The following search string will filter out Eevees that can be perfect CPs, but there can be some that have this CP and are not perfect, so be careful!
