The next Pokémon Go Community Day has been announced for Oct. 12, and it’s going to feature Trapinch, the adorable ground-type Pokémon. The Community Day event will take place from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in your local time.
Trapinch final evolution is Flygon, a ground- and dragon-type. While Flygon isn’t very meta-relevant Pokémon right now, its special Community Day move could change that. Players are already speculating that it could learn the powerful Earth Power move, which would make it a pretty good ground-type attacker. If it does learn a dragon-type move, like Draco Meteor, it’ll be outclassed by other dragon-types, but still worth collecting.
As with all Community Days, the star Pokémon, Trapinch, will be available Shiny at a higher rate. After the Community Day is over, Trapinch will be available Shiny through normal means, though at a much lower rate.
The Community Day will also have tripled catch XP and all lures placed will last for three hours during the event period.
