Each month, the Community Day event celebrates a particular Pokémon in Pokémon Go. There’s a six-hour event where the Pokémon spawns throughout the world, and players can easily catch it with an increased chance of it being a shiny version. If players evolve it into its final form, the Pokémon learns an exclusive move it otherwise could not. These moves are typically better than the original moveset it could acquire, giving it more variety for battling in raids and against other players.

This is what we know about the Pokémon Go Community Day for June 2021. Gibble has been confirmed to be June 2021’s Community Day Pokémon. Niantic made the announcement several weeks before the official release.

What is the Pokémon for June 2021 Community Day?

Swablu will be appearing for everyone during the June 2021 Community Day. This Dragon-type Pokémon’s evolved form, Garchomp, is one of the better Pokémon, being a dual Dragon and Ground-type. It’s considered to be one of the better Ultra and Master League Pokémon you can find in the game.

The quest for the event will be called Just a Nibble. When you evolve your Gibble into an Altaria during the event, it will learn the Ground-type attack, Earth Power, one of the better Ground-type moves in the game, giving Garchomp even more strength moving into Season 8.
