Pokemon GO players are already out stockpiling Pinap Berries in preparation for a very exciting Community Day next month. Larvitar will be the featured monster, which means a ton of players will be flocking to parks to try to score enough candy to evolve some new, high IV Tyranitars. In addition to that, it sounds like the exclusive move will also be a huge selling point.
Niantic hasn’t officially confirmed the Pokemon GO June Community Day exclusive move yet, but some hints and leaks have definitely offered some strong clues. The biggest reveal comes from the Chinese version of the in-game press release, which seems to have accidentally included a sentence that wasn’t meant to go live.
According to the translators of Reddit, the press release spoils the move: Smack Down…
“The first version says ‘It will learn an exclusive move that will be revealed later!’. The second says ‘It will learn Smack Down!’ Only the first version is supposed to be sent to the players at this moment, but the Chinese version sent both sentences out.”
If a shiny Tyranitar wasn’t enough motivation to get out and playing on June 16, this new move may do the trick. Players are predicting that Smack Down Ttars will become very important in the future meta game, so lots of trainers will be out trying to evolve at least a couple of the monsters before the event wraps up.
Keep in mind that Niantic has not officially confirmed the move yet and plans could still change. We’ll keep an eye out for confirmation and update when the news is official.
Until then, good luck out there, trainers!
