August is coming to a close, leaving many events behind in Pokemon GO. Fortunately, there are plenty of events that will be arriving throughout the month of September for 2020. These events include the Community Day where the subject was recently voted on my players as well as the return of many Legendary Pokemon.

There are currently thirteen events planned for Pokemon GO in September. Each of these will be available for a limited time only, so players are recommended to complete the tasks involved with the events as quickly as they can.
