What bonuses are there? So that you can play Community Day diligently on August 13, developer Niantic is bringing additional rewards and bonuses. Most of the add-on content is only active from 11am to 2pm on Saturday, which is exactly the time when Galar Zigzachs appear more frequently. However, selected bonuses last a few hours longer, so you can focus on them longer (these bonuses are marked with the corresponding time).

  • Double Catch Candy
  • 3x Catch Stardust
  • Double Catch Candy
  • Double the chance of XL Candy when catching Pokémon (from level 31)

    Lure modules and smoke last for three hours

  • Snapshots with a surprise encounter

    An additional special exchange (maximum three per day) – until 7 p.m

    Trading costs 50% less Stardust – until 7 p.m

  • New move Blocker for Barrikadax – until 7 p.m
  • Special Research “Field Notes: Galarian Zigzags” for €1 in the in-game shop
  • Raids with level 4 Galar Straightachs spawn Galar Zigzach advance around the arena for 30 minutes – until 7 p.m
  • Limited research (free) that gives you 4 new cosmetics – until 7 p.m

On August 13, we’ll tell you whether the special research for Community Day on Galar Zigzachs and Barrikadax, which costs around one euro, is worth it. The article will then be updated with the current items so that you know exactly what you are getting for your money.

Pokémon GO: Shiny Barrikadax is rare and looks really colorful

What about shiny Galar Zigzags? The Shiny variant of Galar Zigzachs is not new, but has been available in Pokémon Go since May 2021 – but the variant is really rare. The otherwise black and white monster then becomes really flashy neon blue and pink. That may not suit everyone’s taste, but it underlines Barrikadax’s punk rocker identity. The chances of Shiny Monsters in Pokémon GO are extremely increased for Community Day. So you can easily increase the collection with the otherwise rare monsters.

Even though it’s been over a year, shiny Galar Zigzachs are really rare. In 2022, the badger will be the 23rd rarest Shiny in Pokémon Go. Here’s what the color differences look like:

Exclusive move for Galarian Zigzags at Community Day August 2022 – That’s how strong Blocker is

This is the new move for Barrikadax: During Community Day on August 13, you can earn Galarian Zigzachs barricadex evolve to learn such an event-exclusive move: Obstruct. You have until 7 p.m. to learn and develop, which is 5 hours after Community Day.

  • Blocker is a Dark-type Charged Attack
  • 15 damage in trainer battles
  • Blocker is guaranteed to increase your own defense and lower your opponent’s defense
  • 20 damage in Arena and Raid battles

So far, many trainers have used Barrikadax’s Dark-type attack, Night Slash – which has only one chance to boost Attack. The guaranteed boost of the new attack Blocker should be strong, especially in PvP, especially in combination with the 100% debuff. In PvE, however, the damage is very small. However, in combination with the fast attack Counter to gain energy quickly, Barrikadax should be a real option in the GO battle leagues.

Limited Communoty Day research with Galar Zigzachs

This free reward is: Even without buying the research that costs one euro, the August Community Day brings limited research for everyone free of charge. The content is not yet known exactly. But Niantic has already revealed that you should catch 100 Galar Zigzachs.

As a reward, there are event cosmetics to match the day around Barrikadax and Zigzachs. So if you’ve always wanted to dress up as a punk barricadex, you can do so with these cosmetics:

  • Barrikadax hat
  • Barrikadax goggles
  • Barrikadax gloves
  • Barricadex pose
  • After the event, these items will also be available in the shop.

Tips for August Community Day with Galarian Zigzags in Pokémon GO

How to prepare: With Community Day in August 2022 bringing a rare Shiny and a new move, make some preparations ahead of time to catch as many Galar Zigzachs as possible. Community Day only on the one Saturday and most of the bonuses are only valid for 3 hours. So save a few hundred balls for the event to get off to a flying start.

If you want to get the event-exclusive move, you need a total of 125 candies to evolve into Hydreigon (25 to evolve into Galarian Straight Badger and 100 to evolve into Barrikadax). Also, have a Lure Module and a smoke handy if you plan on not walking that much. With the additional catch candies, you should fill up your supplies quickly.
