Pokémon GO’s next Community Day has been scheduled and Larvitar is featured for this month’s event. This announcement marks the sixth consecutive Community Day this year. Trainers from all around the globe have been faithfully attending these events for the past six months in order to obtain Pokémon with exclusive moves, benefit from various bonuses and catch rare shiny Pokémon.
On June 16, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM EDT, Larvitar will spawn more frequently and there is the possibility to encounter shiny Larvitar. It was revealed that Larvitar’s exclusive move will be Smack Down, though it could change by the start of the event. Smack Down was confirmed through an in-game announcement, when translated from Chinese and Japanese roughly states: “when you evolve Pupitar to Tyranitar during the three hour event, Tyranitar will know the special move Smack Down”. It’s worth mentioning that a new sound effect came with the latest update to Pokémon GO; the sound for the move Smack Down was found. However, on Pokémon GO’s site, the exclusive move is displayed as a mystery.
Aside from having the opportunity to obtain a shiny Tyranitar that knows Smack Down, players will receive 3x Catch XP and Lures that will last up to three hours.
Have fun and be safe this Community Day!
