Pokémon GO’s August Community Day Features Magikarp and Aqua Tail

Catch shoals of Magikarp, evolve them into Gyarados that know a special move, and enjoy other fun bonuses.

Get ready to make a splash during the upcoming Pokémon GO Community Day. Magikarp is the star of the event, and although some might claim that the Fish Pokémon is weak and pathetic, real fans know the truth! On Saturday, August 8, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in your local time zone, Magikarp will appear more frequently in the wild, and there’ll be a better chance those you encounter will be Shiny. Plus, if you evolve a Magikarp into Gyarados during the event—or up to two hours afterward—that Gyarados will know Aqua Tail, an attack it can’t normally learn.

Of course, it does take quite a bit of Magikarp Candy to evolve Magikarp into Gyarados, so make sure to complete the event-exclusive Field Research tasks to earn more of the elusive treats. Likewise, you can purchase a ticket to access the Community Day–exclusive Special Research story, Making a Splash. This fun quest sees Professor Willow learning about Magikarp and its Evolution, and it rewards players with even more Magikarp Candy. Players can purchase this Special Research story for USD$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency).

There will be additional bonuses available during the event as well. Incense activated during the event will last for three hours, and you’ll earn three times as much Stardust for catching a Pokémon. And make sure to take a few snapshots during Community Day hours—you just might discover a surprise.

Good luck searching for Magikarp on Community Day, Trainers!
