July has been a great month for Pokémon GO players, as they were able to enjoy great surprises that Niantic was preparing. The month is about to end, but that’s good news, as the developer prepares more content. The beginning of August is approaching and Niantic has already confirmed that Community Day will return again and the protagonist will be the Fish Pokémon.

Niantic has just announced that Magikarp will be the featured creature for the next Community Day, which will take place next Saturday, August 8, from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (local time).

During this event, Magikarp will appear more frequently in the wild and by taking some snapshots you can sneak into the photos. Also, there will be a Community Day Pack that will offer 30 Ultra Balls, 1 Elite Attack MT, 6 Star Pieces and 1 Incense, as well as an exclusive investigation story that will be sold in exchange for $ 1 USD.

In case you missed it: Several special weeks are coming to Pokémon GO.

Magikarp will be the star of August Community Day

There will be incredible bonuses during August Community Day

As on other occasions, the effect of the Incenses will last 3 hours, so it will be enough to use 2 to cover the 6 hours of the event. The most interesting thing is that the Magikarp that evolve to Gyarados during the event or up to 2 hours after it ends will be able to learn the exclusive Acua Cola movement. To make matters worse, players will get triple Stardust per capture.

In case you think that Magikarp is one of the weakest Pokémon and that it is not worth having a Community Day focused on it, we remind you that mega-evolutions are coming to the mobile game and its evolution, Gyarados, can mega-evolve and thus greatly increase your stats.

To evolve to Magikarp it is necessary to feed it with 400 Magikarp Candies, so it will be a great opportunity to evolve a few specimens of this species. Besides, in this event it will be possible to find the shiny or variocolor form of Magikarp more easily.

In case you missed it: You can now extend the Pokemon storage limit, and soon the maximum trainer level will increase as well.

What do you think of this Community Day? Will you catch a lot of Magikarp? Tell us in the comments.

Recently in Pokémon GO the Pokémon GO Fest 2020 took place in two days. In the first, players were able to meet many creatures and in the second, they had to face Team GO Rocket and rescue Victini and Dark Mewtwo. The event was a huge success and Niantic revealed that the trainers caught millions of Pokémon.

Pokémon GO is available on mobile. You can find more news related to the title by checking out our dedicated minisite.
