Now that September’s Community Day is behind us, we can start looking ahead, Trainers. October’s featured ‘mon in Pokémon GO is non other than Trapinch, the “Ant Pit Pokémon!”


This Ground-type will appear in the wild on Saturday, October 12th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time. The usual bonuses will also be available during those hours: 3x catch XP and 3 hour Lures. Its exclusive move hasn’t yet been revealed, but stay tuned, as we’ll be reporting those details once they’re revealed closer to the day next month!

Even if Trapinch wasn’t your first pick for the next featured ‘mon, you can look forward to hunting for those Shiny variants. The colors are nicely contrasted between the regular and Shiny versions, so they won’t be too tricky to spot!
