June Community Day Deino exclusive moves

If you evolve your Zweilous – Deino’s second stage evolution – during the event and up to two hours after the event ends, you will be treated to a Hydreigon with access to the Charged Attack Brutal Swing.

Brutal Swing will be able to inflict 65 power during trainer battles and 65 power during gyms and raid battles.

Can Deino be shiny in Pokemon Go?

If trainers are lucky, they will have the chance to capture a shiny Deino during the event. As Deino are more likely to appear during Community Day, it would be the perfect time to attempt and capture a shiny version of the Irate Pokemon.

How to prepare for Pokemon Go Deino Community Day 

If you’re going to take part in a Community Day, there are a few things you can do to prepare and get the most out of the event:

  • Purchase an Incense to use on the day as they will last longer than usual.
  • Save any Lure Modules you have, as they will last for three hours during the event.
  • Stock up on lots of Ultra Balls to catch plenty of the headline Pokemon.
  • Transfer any unwanted Pokemon to have space for all the catching you’ll do.
  • Check the bonuses that run during the event to take advantage of them.

Additionally, June’s Community Day event will also feature bonus raid battles centered around Zweilous if enough Pokemon are fought with a single Lure Module.

Niantic also allows trainers to gift other members of the community with a ticket to the exclusive Special Research task called Field Notes: Deino. To share a Special research ticket with a friend, you will need to tap the Special Research ticket and tap the Gift button instead of the Buy button.
