While Pokémon Go players may still be surfing the top of Pokémon Go Fest 2020, Niantic just announced the details of the August 2020 Community Day. The Community Day will be useful on August 8, 2020 and will feature the Pokémon Fish, Magikarp. Any Magikarp transformed into Gyarados on Community Day will experience the exclusive movement of the Aqua Tail event. Other Community Day bonuses include:
- Triple Catch Stardust
- Incense extended by three hours
It’s not yet known if this Community Day: Play-at-Home Edition will feature an exclusive paid special research scenario, like Abra and Gastly’s Community Days, but I hope!
While Community Day is often used to showcase shiny variants of the featured Pokémon, Magikarp was the first Pokémon in Pokémon Go to feature a shiny variant in March 2017. Players can probably still count on Magikarp having increased shiny appearances on the day. from the community. Gyarados is also one of the few species of Pokémon that has a mega-evolution, so be sure to catch and evolve as much as possible. Mega Evolution is coming to Pokémon Go soon, and you’ll definitely want at least a few high Gyarados IV when this feature becomes available.
