Pokemon Go: Watch Out for Shiny Froakie During August 2023 Community Day

Tuesday, August 1st, 2023 2:21 pm

This event is coming soon!

The next Pokemon Go Community Day event will take place on August 13, 2023 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time.

During this event, Froakie will appear more frequently than normal in the wild and players will have the chance to encounter Shiny Froakie.

Froakie is a Water-type Pokemon from the sixth generation of the Pokemon universe. In Pokemon Go, you can evolve Froakie into Frogadier using 25 Froakie Candy, and then evolve Frogadier into Greninja using 100 Froakie Candy.

Each time players evolve Frogadier into Greninja during this event or during the five hours immediately following it, Greninja will learn the move Hydro Cannon.

A number of in-game bonuses will be active during this event:

  • Players will receive three times the normal amount of Stardust when catching Pokemon.
  • Players will receive two times the normal number of Pokemon Candy when catching Pokemon.
  • There will be twice the normal chance for players who have reached at least Level 31 in Pokemon Go to receive Candy XL when catching Pokemon.
  • Lure Modules will remain active for three hours when activated during this event.
  • Incense will remain active for three hours when activated during this event.
  • Players will be able to take Snapshots of Pokemon to receive extra encounters with Froakie.

Two more bonuses will be active from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. local time on August 13, 2023:

  • Players will be able to make an additional Special Trade.
  • Trades will cost 50 percent less Stardust to perform.

Players will be able to complete event-themed Field Research tasks during this event to receive Stardust, Ultra Balls, and encounters with Froakie, among other rewards. Players will also be able to collect event-themed stickers by spinning the Photo Disc at PokeStops, opening Gifts, and purchasing them from the in-game shop.

Players will have the option to spend $1 on a ticket that will give them access to a Special Research storyline on Community Day called “A Bubbly Disposition.” Players will have the option to purchase this ticket for themselves, and they’ll also be able to purchase the ticket for their in-game friends.

Players will also have the option to purchase an “Ultra Community Day Box” from the Pokemon Go web store at a discounted price.

Finally, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. local time on August 13, 2023, Frogadier will appear in Tier-4 Raid battles. When players defeat Frogadier in one of these Raids, Froakie will appear around the Gym that hosted the Raid for 30 minutes. You can learn more about these Tier-4 Raid battles on Pokemon Go’s website.
