The small, yet mighty Land Shark Pokémon, Gible, is patiently waiting for their Pokémon GO Community Day appearance! Niantic announced they would star as Pokémon GO’s June Community Day Pokémon well in advance on Twitter earlier this month, but they didn’t get into all details about what awaits Gible. That changes today with a new update on the official Pokémon GO blog.

Here’s what to expect with June 2021’s Pokémon GO Community Day taking place on Sunday, June 6th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (your local time):

 

Features

  • Gible will be appearing more frequently in the wild. If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny one!
  • Evolve Gabite (Gible’s Evolution) during the event or up to two hours afterward to get a Garchomp that knows the attack Earth Power.
  • Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise!
  • There’ll be a special one-time-purchase Community Day Box available for 1,280 PokéCoins, featuring 50 Ultra Balls, five Incense, five Lucky Eggs, and an Elite Charged TM.
  • For US$1 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency), you’ll be able to access the Gible Community Day-exclusive Special Research story, Just a Nibble.
  • Stay tuned for when tickets for the Just a Nibble Special Research story go live! Tickets are nonrefundable (subject to applicable law and the exceptions set forth in the Terms of Service). Please note that this Special Research will not include an in-game medal.

 

Bonuses

  • 3× Catch XP
  • Incense activated during the event will last for three hours

 

No matter when, where, and how you play Pokémon GO, remember to stay safe while on the hunt, Trainers!
