Niantic has announced that the next Pokémon to be highlighted with a Community Day in June will be none other than Gible.
The fans of the game have been asking for Gible to get its own Community Day for a while now. For the past year, Trainers have been vocal about wanting more rare Pokémon featured in Community Days, including Gible.
The Land Shark Pokémon is hard to come by in the wild and can be hatched from 10km eggs. The Pokémon is also rarely featured in any events, making it one of the most sought-after in the game.
The Gible Community Day will take place on Sunday, June 6, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time.
During the Gible Community Day, the number of Gible appearing in the wild will increase significantly and the odds of coming across a Shiny variant will also be much higher than usual.
The exclusive attack for the June Community Day will be Earth Power. If you evolve Gible all the way into its final form Garchomp during the event or up to two hours afterward, it will learn the CD-exclusive move.
As usual, if you take snapshots during the Community Day, you will be photobombed by the featured Pokémon Gible. There’ll be a special one-time-purchase Community Day Box available for 1,280 PokéCoins, featuring 50 Ultra Balls, five Incense, five Lucky Eggs, and an Elite Charged TM. For US$1 (or equivalent in your local currency), you’ll be able to access the Gible Community Day-exclusive Special Research story titled Just a Nibble.
The bonuses for the event include a 3× Catch XP and an Incense duration of three hours.
The Catch XP bonus combined with one of the fan-favorite Pokémon for the Community Day will make the June event exciting for many players. Garchomp that knows the Ground-type charged attack Earth Power will be a strong addition to any Trainer’s team.
To see just how strong the Earth Power Garchomp will be, let’s take a look at the raid and gym viability, as well as the PVP potential of the Pokémon.
With the addition of Earth Power, Garchomp got a significant upgrade. Compared to other Ground-type charged moves it has access to (Sand Tomb and Earthquake), Earth Power is a major improvement.
That doesn’t mean that you should completely ignore Sand Tomb and Earthquake, as they are two very powerful moves that will continue having their uses.
Garchomp is already one of the best Pokémon to use in PVP. However, there are much better options of Ground- and Dragon-type Pokémon in Great and Ultra League, including Flygon and even its middle evolution, Vibrava.
The Master League is where Garchomp truly shines. Garchomp with Mud Shot paired with Outrage and Earthquake has a 78.4% win rate against the meta in Master League Classic. With Earth Power, the rate reaches 80.6%.
The difference might not be very significant, but with Earth Power, Garchomp has a greater chance of winning against Kyogre and Dialga, two of the most popular choices for the Master League. In Open Master League and XL Gible Candies at your disposal, Garchomp becomes even more powerful, reaching an astounding 86% win rate with Earth Power, a 2% increase from Earthquake.
Garchomp with Mud Shot and Earthquake was already great for use in raids and gyms. With the addition of Earth power, it becomes one of the best options to use against Pokémon that are weak to Ground-type.
Garchomp with Earth Power deals 200 damage (a 2-bar charged move) in the same amount of time that Garchomp deals 140 damage with Earthquake (a 1-bar charged move). This makes Earth Power a prime choice for raids and gyms.
Garchomp is a dual Dragon- and Ground-type, making it triple resistant against Electric-type attacks. The powerful Earth Power combined with Dragon-type move Outrage makes Garchomp one of the best attackers in raids.
Earth Power can easily take down Pokémon with type advantage and Outrage can deliver unresisted damage to many types. This makes Garchomp an excellent choice, only being unable to take on the Fairy types.
The popularity of Gible, excellent Catch XP bonus, and a powerful CD-exclusive move will make the June Community Day the one to remember. Make sure you have enough Pokéballs to hunt down as many Shiny Land Shark Pokémon as you can on June 6 and take advantage of the Catch XP bonus.
