June 2023 Community Day: Axew
Trainers, mark your calendars for Saturday, June 10, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time because Axew, the Tusk Pokemon, will be taking the spotlight during June Community Day!
Axew will make more frequent appearances in the wild during this special event, giving trainers a greater chance to encounter and catch this adorable Dragon type. But that’s not all, evolving Fraxure, Axew’s Evolution, during the event or up to five hours afterward will reward you with a Haxorus that knows the powerful Charged Attack Breaking Swipe. This move, previously unavailable to the Axe Jaw Pokemon, makes Haxorus an excellent choice for Raid Battle lineups. So make sure to have enough candy to evolve your Fraxure during the event period!
Community Day Special Research – “Keeping Sharp”
If you’re looking to further enhance your Pokemon GO experience, you’ll have the opportunity to embark on the Community Day Special Research story called “Keeping Sharp”. For a modest fee of US$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency), you can access this exclusive research and dive deeper into the world of Axew and its evolutions. Keep an eye out for when the tickets for this Special Research become available!
Additionally, trainers can now purchase and gift tickets to friends with whom they share a Great Friends or higher friendship level. This is a great way to spread the joy of research and connect with your fellow trainers. Simply tap on the “Gift” button instead of the “Buy” button when purchasing the tickets to share the experience.
During the Community Day event hours, trainers can enjoy various bonuses to enhance their gameplay. Some of the event bonuses include:
- 3x XP for catching Pokemon: This is a great opportunity to level up and earn experience points faster.
- 2x Candy for catching Pokemon: Stock up on candy to power up and evolve your Pokemon.
- 2x chance for Trainers level 31 and up to receive Candy XL from catching Pokemon: Candy XL is essential for reaching higher levels of Pokemon mastery.
- Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours: Make the most of your Lure Modules and attract Pokemon to your location for an extended period.
- Incense (excluding Daily Adventure Incense) activated during the event will last for three hours: Extend the duration of your Incense and maximize your chances of encountering rare Pokemon.
These bonuses aim to provide trainers with a more rewarding experience during the Community Day event hours, allowing them to make significant progress in their Pokemon GO journey.
Bonus Raid Battles after Community Day
After the three-hour Community Day event concludes, trainers will have the opportunity to participate in special four-star Raid Battles featuring Fraxure. These battles will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time, offering trainers a chance to further engage in exciting gameplay. Upon completing a four-star Raid Battle against Fraxure, additional Axew will temporarily appear in the vicinity of the Gym where the raid took place for a 30-minute period. Trainers may even encounter a shiny Axew during this time!
It’s important to note that participation in these four-star Raid Battles requires Raid Passes or Premium Battle Passes and can only be joined in person. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used for these particular battles.
Get Event-Themed Stickers
As part of the Community Day celebration, trainers will have the opportunity to collect event-themed stickers. These stickers can be obtained by spinning PokÃ©Stops, opening Gifts, and even purchasing them from the in-game shop. Show off your participation in the event with these special stickers!

By searching for Community Parks on the map, you can identify popular locations in your city where trainers gather for Community Day events. These parks offer a fantastic opportunity to meet and interact with other trainers, share strategies, and enjoy the game together while taking advantage of the fresh air and outdoor experience.
