The June Community Day for the year of 2021 will feature Gible, the Land Shark Pokemon from Gen IV. This fan-favourite Pokemon has always been the top choice- be it for PvE and PvP or for shiny hunting. This Community Day, enjoy an increased chance of getting your hands on a shiny Gible, along with the Community-day exclusive move Earth Power, when evolved during the event. Garchomp is an excellent choice for both PvP as well as Raids, therefore try catching as many Gible as possible in order to get one of a decent IV. If you are lucky, you can even evolve a 100IV shiny!

Gible Community Day Features

The following features will go live as soon as the Gible Community Day starts, and will end accordingly. This means all of them are time-limited, and will end on June 6, 5p.m. local time.

Increased Rates for Shiny Gible

Community Days are known for the increased rates of the shiny forms of the featured Pokemon throughout the event. The same will happen for Gible- the shiny rate is expected to be close to 1 in every 25 encounters. The shiny variant of Gible turns a brighter shade of blue and its belly turns from red to yellow. Shiny Gabite’s blue colors also turn brighter with its grayer highlights turning light blue and its stomach going from red to reddish orange. And finally shiny Garchomp turns from blue to a light black while its belly turns from red to reddish orange If you catch enough Gible, you might get a shiny with a decent IV, which not only will be a new member to your Shiny List, but can also be used in Raids and Go Battle Leagues.

Community Day Exclusive Move- Earth Power

The exclusive Move for the Gible Community Day will be Earth Power. A Ground-type move, Earth Power has the potential of performing well against Poison, Rock, Steel, Fire, Electric-type Pokemon. This means it can work very well against the likes of Metagross or Melmetal, which are quite common in the Master League. To get this Community-day exclusive move, you have to evolve your Gabite into Garchomp during the Community Day, or up to two hours afterwards.

Community Day Exclusive move Earth Power Analysis

Garchomp already is one of the most powerful non-legendary Dragon, having a versatile moveset. As if it were not enough, it also boasts of the fastest access to Outrage- traditionally considered to be an expensive move. It also has access to another great move for PvP- Sand Tomb. While not so powerful, Sand Tomb can easily bait shields in the disguise of Outrage, while guaranteeing a debuff in the opponent’s Defence. Though not so useful for Raids, Sand Tomb can easily be Garchomp’s main Charged move.

With the Community Day, Garchomp will have another powerful Ground-type move added to it’s movepool. In fact, Earth Power is considered to be the strongest Ground-type Charged move when it comes to balance between power and energy. While Garchomp is known to wreak havocs to Steel-types with Earthquake, it takes forever to charge. With only 55 enegry, Earth Power can deal 100 damage (in contrast, Earthquake requires 65 energy, and deals 140 damage). Therefore, Earth Power not only charges quickly, but also dishes out substantial damage to its opponents. With Mud Shot that can gain energy very fast, Garchomp will become the 3rd Highest DPS non-shadow, non-Legendary.

Now talking about PvE, Grachomp has always been a great attacker, having a high Attack as well as Defence. With Earth Power, it can dish out 200 damage in almost the same time as an Earthquake with 140 Damage. Not to mention, they also have the same cooldown.

In short, Earth Power Garchomp can now outclass other dominant Ground-types, including itself. It can not only beat the likes of Metagross, Dialga and Melmetal in a jiff, it can even beat Kyogre in a no shield scenario. Mud Shot should be your go-to Fast move, if you are planning to use it as a closer.

To conclude, an Earth Power Garchomp is one of the best Ground-type attacker currently present in the game, and definitely the best non-legendary. So, get yourself a secondary move- be it Sand Tomb or Outrage- and get ready to rule the Meta.
