As you might have guessed, Larvitar is the featured Pokemon for the upcoming Community Day. While playing Pokemon GO during Community Day, there will be an abundance of Larvitar that you can catch for yourself. You might want to take advantage of it as you will also have higher odds of catching a Shiny Larvitar.

If you evolve Larvitar that you caught from the Community Day all the way up to a Tyranitar, that Tyranitar will have the Fast Attack, Smack Down. On top of that, players will receive three (3) times the normal XP for catching Pokemon, and Lure Modules activated during this Community Day will last for 3 hours as well.
