Another Community Day is coming in Pokemon GO, with June being a big one!
While the Pokemon GO calendar is very busy with lots of events taking place, Community Day is always a staple event to mark each month.
This year, we’re being treated to Axew the Dragon-type Pokemon.
So what can we expect this year? Here’s all you need to know about the June 2023 Community Day in Pokemon GO.
The June 2023 Community Day will take place on the 10th of June 2023.
This event will occur from 2PM-5PM local time.
Axew June 2023 Community Day Pokemon
It’s been confirmed that Axew will be the feature Pokemon for June 2023, after lots of rumours suggested the dragon-type would take the stage.
Axew, when it is evolved to Haxorus, Axew’s final evolution, it will come with a unique attack.
Haxorus will be able to learn the Charged Attack ‘Breaking Swipe’.
Breaking Swipe does 50 power and is guaranteed to lower the opponent’s Attack in Trainer Battles, while it does 35 power in Gyms and Raids.
There will also be a higher chance of catching a shiny version of Axew or the unique Pokemon that is featured on that day.
