Pokemon GO Confirms Larvitar for Next Community Day


Just recently, many Pokemon GO fans were awaiting Niantic's decision to announce what the wildly popular augmented reality game's featured pocket monster would be for next month's Community Day, with many speculating Larvitar was on deck to get its due. Now, the developer has officially confirmed that fans' hypothesizing is correct, as the studio has declared the aforementioned Rock- and Ground-type to have the forthcoming event centered around it.

As seen in the tweet below from the official Pokemon GO Twitter account, the mobile title's next Community Day is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM CDT, with Larvitar to be the focus. Niantic has also confirmed that June's Community Day will provide bonuses such as triple the XP for any Pokemon caught during the event and 3-hour lures, much like it has done in the past with previous Community Day events.

The one aspect of Pokemon GO's next Community Day event that Niantic did not reveal related to the exclusive move that players can learn for either Larvitar or its subsequent evolutions of both Pupitar and Tyranitar – the latter of which was the key to success for the first few months of Battle Raids. It's likely, though, that Tyranitar will be the one to receive a new Charge Move, with many would-be Trainers hoping for the creature to receive Smack Down.

All things considered, it's safe to say that plenty of Pokemon GO fans will be content to hear that Larvitar is the focus of the next Community Day, as the creature is considered a rarity in most regions, with many having hoped for the event to feature it in order to stock up on the Rock- and Ground-type. Plus, with fans currently dissatisfied with the distribution of both Latias and Ho-oh in-game, it's good to see that Niantic is giving the fan base what it wants this time around.

Pokemon GO is available now for Android and iOS devices.
