October’s Pokemon GO Community Day: Catching Trapinch
The highly anticipated Pokemon GO Community Day for October puts the spotlight on the Ground-type Pokemon, Trapinch. This special event will take place on Saturday, October 12, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time.

Evolution Bonus: Earth Power
Trainers who manage to evolve their Trapinch into Vibrava, and then into Flygon during the event or within two hours afterward, will be rewarded with a unique move called Earth Power. This move is typically unavailable to Flygon, making this an excellent opportunity to add a powerful move to your Pokemon’s arsenal.
Special Egg Hatches and Bonuses
