Pokémon GO’s long-running monthly event, Community Day, turned 4 years old in 2022. Four years means a plethora of Pokémon have been shown off with special, event-exclusive attacks and increased Shiny rates. (And now that we’re in 2023, it’s five years’ worth!) Yet, for newer Trainers, chances are they’ve missed out on most of these gatherings.

In January 2022 (during the Season of Heritage), Niantic brought back a Community Day from 2018 (Bulbasaur’s Community Day) and called it Community Day Classic. This event was based on the old Community Day format (hours, previous Community Day Pokémon, and more), with a slight upgrade (namely photobomb encounters).

What was thought to be a one-time event (or a simple test) is now turning into a potential series. Niantic held a second Community Day Classic in April 2022 and continues to hold Community Day Classic events. Read on for all the details about this month’s event which will transport you to November 2018‘s Community Day.

 

When will Pokémon GO’s June 2024 Community Day Classic take place?

June 2024’s Community Day Classic will be happening on Saturday, June 22nd, 2024 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. your local time.

 

What Pokémon is showcased in June 2024‘s Community Day Classic?

The Pokémon featured for this June 2024’s Community Day Classic is Cyndaquil. You’ll find that Cyndaquil will be appearing more frequently in the wild and, if you’re lucky, you might even encounter a Shiny one!

 

What is the exclusive attack for June 2024‘s Community Day Classic?

Evolve Cyndaquil into their final evolution (Cyndaquil to Quilava to Typhlosion) and you’ll have a Typhlosion that will know Blast Burn (Charged Attack).

Blast Burn is the Charged Attack that Typhlosion could learn during its original Community Day event in November 2018. Its stats are the following:

  • Trainer Battles: 110 power
  • Gyms and Raids: 110 power

 

Notes:

  • This attack can only be learned when Quilava is evolved into Typhlosion on Saturday, June 22nd, 2024 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. your local time.
  • To evolve Cyndaquil into Quilava, you’ll need 25 Cyndaquil Candies.
  • To evolve Quilava into Typhlosion, you’ll need 100 Cyndaquil Candies.
    • Therefore, you’ll need 125 Cyndaquil Candies if evolving Cyndaquil to Quilava to Typhlosion.
