The August 2023 Pokemon GO Community Day features the Gen 6 Water-type starter Froakie.
Of course, Froakie will be spawning much more frequently throughout the event, but there’s plenty more to look forward to. This includes a load of in-game bonuses, the debut of shiny Froakie, Frogadier Raids, an exclusive Greninja attack, and new Research!

Froakie Community Day Raids
After the conclusion of the Pokemon GO Froakie Community Day, from 5 PM to 10 PM local time, Froakie’s evolution, Frogadier, will be in Tier 4 Raids.
Remote Raid Passes cannot be used for these Raids, and there is also a bonus for winning a Frogadier Raid too. For 30 minutes after winning a Frogadier Raid, Froakie will spawn around the PokeStop you won the Raid at.
Featured Greninja Attack – Hydro Cannon
Evolving Frogadier into Greninja from 3 PM to 10 PM local time on August 13 will give you a Greninja that knows Hydro Cannon.
This is an exclusive charged attack that has 80 power in trainer battles and 90 power in Gyms and Raids.
Additionally, once Froakie Community Day begins, Greninja will be able to learn a new fast attack in Pokemon GO – Water Shuriken. This has 6 power in trainer battles and 10 power in Gyms and Raids.
Froakie Community Day Research
Pokemon trainers will be able to collect and complete Community Day Field Research Tasks during the event, with rewards including Froakie encounters, Stardust, and Ultra Balls.
Meanwhile, players can also purchase a ticket for the A Bubbly Disposition Research in the in-game shop. This Special Research will also include Froakie encounters and some Froakie Candy, but it must be completed on the Community Day!
