Every month, Pokemon GO holds a Community Day event, which is all about one particular Pokemon, and June 2023’s featured Pokemon is Axew!
This means that throughout the event, Axew will be spawning much more often. Plus, the shiny version of Axew will be available to catch!
In addition to the Axew spawns, there will be some great in-game bonuses, Raids, and more.

Featured Haxorus Attack – Breaking Swipe
Evolving Fraxure into Haxorus from 2 PM until 10 PM local time on the Axew Community Day will give you a Haxorus that knows the exclusive attack Breaking Swipe.
This is a charged attack that has 35 power in Gyms and Raids. Meanwhile, it has 50 power in trainer battles, with the caveat it powers up your opponent’s attack.
4-Star Raids on Axew Community Day
From 5 PM to 10 PM local time on June 10, following the Axew Community Day, players will be able to battle Fraxure in Tier 4 Raids.
Like all Community Day Raids, players must take part in them in person. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used.
Additionally, winning a Fraxure Raid will cause Axew to spawn around the Gym for 30 minutes. This is perfect to farm some more Axew Candy before the day is over!
Keeping Sharp Special Research Ticket
Pokemon GO players can purchase the Keeping Sharp Special Research Ticket for $1 to get access to a Special Research Story on the Community Day.
This Special Research Story must be completed by 5 PM local time on June 10. Judging by previous Cumminty Days, it will reward players with Axew Candy and encounters.
