Log-in Issues and Makeup Event
During the previous Community Day Classic: Squirtle event, there were unfortunate log-in issues specifically for Trainers using Pokemon Trainer Club accounts.

This makeup event aims to ensure that everyone has a chance to fully experience the Community Day festivities and enjoy all the exciting features.
We deeply appreciate your understanding and continued enthusiasm for Pokemon GO!
Exciting Features and Pokemon
The July 2023 Community Day Classic brings a host of exciting features that will surely keep Trainers engaged and thrilled. Let’s take a closer look at what this event has in store:
Featured Pokemon: Squirtle
Squirtle, the beloved Tiny Turtle Pokemon, will be appearing more frequently in the wild during the event. This means you will have increased opportunities to encounter and catch this adorable Water-type starter Pokemon throughout your gameplay during the event period.
Featured Attack: Blastoise with Hydro Cannon
Trainers, here’s your chance to obtain a powerful Blastoise with the exclusive Charged Attack called Hydro Cannon. Evolve your Wartortle (the evolution of Squirtle) either during the event or within two hours afterwardâ€”from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local timeâ€”to obtain a Blastoise that knows this incredibly potent Water-type Charged Attack.
Hydro Cannon is a fearsome move that can be utilized in various battles:
- In Trainer Battles, Hydro Cannon packs a punch with 80 power.
- In Gyms and raids, this move becomes even more formidable with 90 power.
So make sure to evolve your Wartortle and add this powered-up Blastoise to your battle roster!
