Squirtle is returning to the spotlight in a Community Day Classic event for Pokemon Go this July 2023. The one-day event allows you to find this starter Pokemon from the Kanto region for a short period throughout the day, and if you evolve it into Blastoise, it will learn an exclusive move.
For anyone who might have missed out on previous Squirtle Community Day events, this is a valuable opportunity to grab this Pokemon with a powerful attack. This guide covers all of the July 2023 Community Day Classic dates, bonuses, and the exclusive move you can get in Pokemon Go.
When is Pokemon Go’s July 2023 Community Day Classic for Squirtle?
According to PokemonGoLive, The Community Day Classic event for Squirtle will happen on July 9, 2023, from 2 PM to 5 PM in your local time zone. Squirtle will be spawning more often in the wild during this event, and there’s an increased chance for everyone to encounter a shiny version in Pokemon Go.
Several Field Research tasks will go live at the same time as this event. The Field Research tasks will feature Squirtle wearing sunglasses, which will be the only way to encounter this costumed version of Squirtle during the event in Pokemon Go. There will also be a Community Day Classic Special Research story called Squirtle Community Day Classic.
Unlike other Community Day events, there will be no four-star raids featuring Squirtle’s second form, Wartortle, for more Squirtle spawns to round out the event.
