We also know who the featured Pokemon for Pokemon Go Community Day August 2019 will be. Ralts, the dual-type Psychic and Fairy Pokemon that was introduced in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, will spawn more regularly. You’ll also have a shot at finding a shiny Ralts too during the three-hour Community Day period. If you’ve been wanting to nab yourself one, now is the time to do so.

The exclusive move for Community Day is Synchronoise. To ensure that you get this special-event attack, you’ll need to evolve Ralts into either of its evolutions called Gardevoir or Gallade. It doesn’t matter which one you evolve it into, so long as the evolution occurs and you get the move. You need to evolve Ralts before 8 PM local time too, otherwise, you’ll miss out on this exclusive move. Make sure you don’t.
