August is almost here, and one of the first events Pokemon Go players have to look forward to is August’s Community Day. This month’s event takes place next Saturday, August 8, and as usual, it’ll give players everywhere a chance to catch a Shiny Pokemon, learn a special event-exclusive move, and more. To help you prepare, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about August’s Community Day below.
August’s Featured Pokemon: Magikarp
The majestic Magikarp
This month’s featured Pokemon is an unexpected choice: Magikarp, the notoriously useless fish Pokemon. All throughout August’s Community Day, Magikarp will appear in the wild much more often than normal, and you’ll have a greater chance to encounter a Shiny Magikarp during the event.
