Larvitar Community Day It’s an unique Community Day that strike our heart once again, an unique monthly event in Pokémon GO that greatly raises the spawn rate of a single Pokemon for three hours and three hours alone, motivating gamers to come out and play at the same time with some special bonuses and a chance for priceless shiny monsters. We’re looking at Larvitar/Pupitar/Tyranitar for June, so have your hats handy, which you should all be wearing for sun protection. Here’s what we’re up against:
Larvitar Community Day is Here!
When: Community Day is held on Saturday, June 16. As in the past, Community Day is held at various times throughout three time zones. Based on your location, here’s when you should turn up:
- The Americas: 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. PT
- Europe and Africa: 10:00 a.m – 1:00 p.m. BST
- Asia/Pacific: 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. JST
The Pokémon: It’s a monster. The featured Pokémon for June Community Day is Larvitar, which evolves into Pupitar and eventually into the terrifying Tyranitar, which has long been one of the game’s most helpful monsters in the game’s legendary meta. Tyranitar has top-tier stats and a very powerful attack, and it can learn the Rock-type charge move Stone Edge, which is quite useful for defeating legendary birds. It can also learn the quick attack Bite, which delivers tremendous damage all around and even more damage against Psychic-types like Lugia or Mewtwo: fighting Mewtwo with six Tyranitars isn’t a bad idea, and it’ll be a lot easier now that the Community Day is over.
The Move: Previous Community Days’ unique movements were nothing to write home about, but that is not the case this time. If you develop your Larvitar all the way to Tyranitar, it will learn the Rock-type quick move Smack Down, allowing you to execute a double Rock typing with Stone Edge to absolutely shred some Flying-type Pokémon apart. For a long time, Golem has been the go-to Rock-type attacker, but a Smack Down/Stone Edge Tyranitar should easily defeat it. Bite may still be the preferable option for all-around assault.
The Bonus: This time, the bonus is experience: you’ll gain three times the experience for every Pokémon you catch. For high-level players, it’s not the most useful item in the world, but it’s also not completely meaningless. If you want a nice little burst of speed to the next level, use a Lucky Egg.
It’s Community Day, everyone. This implies that gamers of Pokémon GO will have a far better chance of catching Larvitar, the star of the June Community Day event.
Larvitar may not seem to be much on its own, but he has the potential to develop into the fearsome Tyranitar, a Rock/Dark-type Pokémon classed as a pseudo-legendary Pokémon. Players will earn extra incentives throughout the event, as they have in prior Community Days. Catching a Pokémon will provide you quadruple the experience, and lures will persist for three hours.

POKEMON GO JUNE COMMUNITY DAY: START TIME
The event will take place on June 16 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time. Niantic began holding Community Days to promote collaboration and new friendships, so you may team up with old friends or make new ones via fan networks like The Silph Road.
POKEMON GO JUNE COMMUNITY DAY: LOCATIONS
For this occasion? Anywhere. Larvitar is not particular about where it spawns, however it prefers parks, nature preserves, and areas with a lot of flat flora, such as golf courses. Just make sure you’re heading somewhere public.
POKEMON GO JUNE COMMUNITY DAY: REWARDS
Niantic hasn’t unveiled any Shiny skins for Larvitar, but that’s to be expected. All past Community Days included unannounced Shiny versions of the main Pokémon, and I’d feel horrible for our little pal Larvitar if it missed out on a lovely makeover. Larivtar and its evolved versions, Pupitar and Tyranitar, will have shiny skins.
Players that capture a Larvitar and level it up all the way to Tyranitar will also gain Smack Down, an event-exclusive move. You should definitely hurry since a Tyranitar with Smack Down is expected to be the most powerful Rock-type Pokémon in the game.
If you can smell what the Larvitar is cooking, come out on June 16 to capture the greatest Rock-type Pokémon in the game.
Overall, this is a large Community Day, and the weather in Philadelphia is pleasant for the first time in a long time this weekend. I anticipate this to be the most well-attended event since Dratini, and it should be an enjoyable three hours for anybody wishing to go outdoors and meet some other trainers. If you want to see where the other gamers are hanging out, stay hydrated and head to Raids. After all, that is the entire goal of Community Day.
