Gible has been confirmed as the Pokemon Go Community Day headliner for June, 2021. That’s not all, either, as Garchomp’s Pokemon Go moveset is about to change with an exclusive Earth Power move. 

After Swablu, who will be the star of the show in May, comes Gible – the first in the evolution line that leads to the almighty Salamence.

There had been speculation that the developers may turn to a Fairy-type, following on from the Xerneas Luminous Legends X event in May, though now there are no questions to be answered in that regard.

When’s the next Community Day in Pokemon Go?

Gible has been confirmed as the next Community Day headliner, taking place on June 6, 2021.

Gible Exclusive move: Garchomp Earth Power Pokemon Go

Garchomp is getting an exclusive move this June, Earth Power. 

In a blog post on May 20, Niantic confirmed a new exclusive Community Day move. If you evolve Gible’s evolution, Gabite, into Garchomp, it will learn the Earth Power attack.

Players will also have two hours after the Day ends to evolve their Gabite too, meaning if you somehow miss doing it during the event, you’ve at least got some time to get the exclusive move.

Gible is rare in Pokemon Go.

For Pokemon Go Community Day events, the catch rates for Headliner Pokemon are increased. The same goes for the Shiny catch rate.

Shiny Pokemon are the rarest form in-game, and many Trainers have credited Community Days for their successful encounters. Maybe this time, you’ll grab a Shiny Gible as part of the action! There’s also a 3x Catch XP bonus, so make sure you’re catching as many as you can.

Gible Community Day Special Research

As usual, there is a set of optional Special Research tasks for the Gible Community Day. Called “Just a Nibble”, it costs $1 USD in the in-game Shop.
