July Community Day 2020 Dates And Times

The July community event will take place Sunday, July 19th, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time.

Featured Pokemon Voting

The featured Pokemon for July is Gastly.

Gastly: Evolve Haunter (the evolved form of Gastly) to get a Gengar that knows the Ghost-type attack Shadow Punch. Shadow Punch’s ability to charge up quickly will give Gengar a useful attack to trick your opponent into using their Protect Shields. This can leave you with an opening to pull off more powerful attacks later, like Shadow Ball!
