The August 2023 Community Day was confirmed by Pokémon GO. The water-type Froakie from Generation 6 is a Pokémon. Following the recent Squirtle and Poliwag events in July, the Community Day Pokémon for August will be the third Water-type Pokémon chosen in a row in Pokémon GO.
With special event bonuses, unique moves, and enhanced appearance rates for a brief period of time, Pokémon GO’s Community Day events highlight a highlighted Pokémon. These event perks include an extra Special Trade, lower trading Stardust expenses, and double Candy drops from catching Pokémon. Niantic makes extra raid battles accessible after the Community Day event period is complete, enabling Pokémon GO users to keep collecting goodies like Rare Candy and higher shiny appearance rates.
When is the August 2023 Community Day for Pokémon GO?
Froakie will be the featured August 2023 Community Day Pokémon on Sunday, August 13, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM local time, according to a recent Pokémon GO update from Niantic. Players will see more Froakie in the wild and have a better chance of running into a shining Froakie. By evolving Frogadier, Froakie’s evolution, during or up to five hours after, Pokémon GO users can obtain a Greninja that is capable of using the Charged Attack Hydro Cannon move. For individuals that catch Froakie several times during the Community Day event, the Limited-time Field Research will also be accessible with extra rewards, such as Ultra Balls and Stardust.
From 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. local time on Sunday, August 13.
The latest Special Research narrative by Froakie, titled “A Bubbly Disposition,” will be featured during the community day in August 2023. The Special Research stories for Pokémon GO can be obtained for $1 or used in conjunction with a Special Research ticket. Pokémon GO players can benefit from a number of event perks while advancing the Special Research, including three times as much Stardust for catching Pokémon and more Candy XL drops from leveling Pokémon. Frogadier four-star raid engagements will be accessible from the August 2023 Community Day until 10:00 PM local time on August 13.
Even though Community Day will once again center on a Water-type Pokémon, there should be plenty of opportunities to win Candy and other helpful gifts in Pokémon GO during the event. However, Niantic could wish to stay away from login problems from earlier Community Day events. The August 2023 Community Day might be a huge success for Niantic and the player base if it comes without bugs and other issues.

How to get ready for Pokémon Go’s Vulpix Spotlight Hour?
There are a few things you can do in advance to ensure you don’t waste any of the limited time available during the Spotlight Hours, which are only 60 minutes long:
- Make sure you have enough Poke Balls to capture several Pokémon from the Spotlight Hour.
- Make certain you have enough berries to obtain double the candy or to facilitate capturing.
- To create place for all the Pokémon you’ll catch, clean out your Pokémon storage box.
- Spend your accumulated PokeCoins on an incense befitting the occasion.
Along with these suggestions, Spotlight Hours are the ideal time to use any extra items, such as Lucky Eggs or Star Pieces, to raise the amount of XP and Stardust you’ll receive during the event.
Spawn Rate & Shiny Rate for the Spotlight Hour
During these events, the spawn rate of every Spotlight Hour Pokémon is increased for a period of 60 minutes, giving you lots of chances to capture each species, particularly if you’re employing Incense and Lures. However, because you’re encountering so many of them, you’re more likely to find a Shiny during a Spotlight Hour than during regular hours. This is true even if Spotlight Hours won’t increase a Pokémon’s particular Shiny rate.
The ideal strategy is to utilize an Incense and go exploring if you intend to Shiny hunt during Spotlight Hours. Tap on every Pokémon you come across, but don’t bother trying to catch them if they aren’t Shiny; instead, move on and continue looking. Keep in mind that you may now use Pokedex categories to identify certain Shiny Pokémon in your collection, which is useful if you’re attempting to catch every single one.
Players will likely try to fast develop Froakie and Frogadier into Greninja because it is one of the greatest Water-type Pokémon and will have the best moves if they do. Players who miss out on gaining Greninja using the Charged Attack Hydro Cannon move may wish to try their luck by trading with other players now that Stardust costs are significantly lower.
In August 2023, Pokémon GO’s Community Day will feature the water-type Froakie on Sunday, August 13, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM local time. Trainers can enjoy special bonuses like extra Special Trades, reduced trading Stardust costs, and double Candy drops during the event. Evolving Frogadier during or after the event grants a Greninja with the exclusive Charged Attack Hydro Cannon. The following Spotlight Hour on August 1 will showcase Vulpix from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM local time with increased spawn rates and a chance of encountering a shiny. Trainers should prepare with ample items and use Incense for maximum benefits.
