A Gen VII Pokemon is getting its day in the limelight in Pokemon Go, as Grubbin will be the focus of a Community Day event in September 2023. Not only will you have a chance to catch a Shiny Grubbin, but you’ll also be able to earn lots of rewards, as well as unlock special moves for Grubbin’s two evolved forms: Charjabu and Vikavolt.

Grubbin starts out as a lowly Bug-type Pokemon, but it becomes a force to be reckoned with when it evolves, as it gains the Electric-type as well. If you’re lucky enough to capture a Shiny Grubbin, it will have a red face, and it will gain a swanky grey and lime green color scheme if you can evolve it into a Shiny Vikavolt.
