Pokemon Go Fest 2020 has come and gone, but Niantic already has some more events lined up for the hit mobile game, including August’s Community Day. That will take place on August 8, and the featured Pokemon this time around will be an unexpected choice: Magikarp.
Throughout the event, Magikarp will appear in the wild much more frequently than usual, giving you plenty of opportunities to catch it and stock up on Magikarp Candy–which you’ll need a lot of if you hope to evolve it into Gyarados. Any Magikarp that you evolve up to two hours after the Community Day ends will learn the move Aqua Tail. You’ll also have a chance to encounter a Shiny Magikarp during the event.
On top of that, Niantic will offer a few other in-game bonuses during August’s Community Day. First, any Incense that you use during the event will remain active for three hours rather than the usual 30 minutes, letting you attract more wild Pokemon without having to leave home. In addition, you’ll earn triple the normal amount of Stardust for catching Pokemon.
