Pokemon Go’s August 2023 Community Day has been announced for the mobile game. The event features Froakie, the bubble frog Pokemon, and it will be appearing much more frequently in the wild during this limited-time event.
Not only will it be spawning more often in the wild, but anyone who reaches its final form, Greninja, can teach it a limited-time exclusive move that it won’t be able to learn outside of special events, or using an Elite TM. Here’s what you need to know about Pokemon Go’s August 2023 Community Day event for Froakie, including all dates, bonuses for participating, and exclusive moves.
Pokemon Go’s August 2023 Froakie Community Day Event
When is Froakie’s Community Day in Pokemon Go, for August 2023?
Following this event time, Frogadier, Froakie’s second form, will appear in four-star raids that occur in your local area.

All Greninja Community Day Exclusive Moves for Pokemon Go’s August 2023 Community Day
For Froakie’s August 2023 Community Day, Greninja can learn two exclusive moves during the event. The special one that can only appear during the Community Day is Hydro Cannon, and this is a Charged Attack. However, the second one is a permanent addition to Greninja’s moveset pool in Pokemon Go, and its Water Shuriken, a Fast Attack.
Following the conclusion of August 2023 in Pokemon Go, Greninja can continue to learn Water Shuriken, but you will need an Elite Charged TM to teach Greninja Hydro Cannon outside of Froakie’s Community Day.
