Froakie Community Day: Date, time, and bonuses

The Bubble Frog Pokemon, Froakie, has been announced by Pokemon Go to be the headliner for August 2023’s first Community Day. Typically in these events, the said Pokemon has a high spawn rate in the wild while there are also some unique bonuses attached to it.

Froakie Community Day Classic will begin on August 13, 2023, from 2:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. Local Time. Trainers can evolve the Water-type Pokemon to Frogadier by feeding it 25 Candy after which it takes 100 Candy to evolve into the all-powerful Greyninja. The Ninja-type Pokemon will also be able to learn two new moves during the event.

Greyninja can now learn Hydro Cannon and Water Shuriken

Trainers that evolve their Frogadier during the event or five hours after, i.e., till 7 P.M. Local Time, will get a Greyninja that has learned the Hydro Cannon Charged Attack. It requires 50 energy to inflict a whopping 80 attack damage in trainer battles and 90 damage in Gyms and Raids.

Complementing the Water-type Attack will be the debut of Water Shuriken Quick Move. This will massively change the meta system, with many trainers saying goodbye to Swampert as their main PvP Water-type specialist. Water Shuriken will do 6 damage in trainer battles and 10 damage in Gyms and Raids.

Due to the Water-type build, Greyninja will benefit from STAB. It boasts excellent parameters with 2 damage per turn and 4.66 energy per turn. However, it has a fragile build and needs good use of Shield play along with Energy generation.

The odds of getting a Shiny Froakie are unknown since its debut will be during the August 2023 Community Day.
