Pokémon Go Magmar Community Day: start times and best movesets

Pokémon Go Magmar Community Day: start times and best movesets

Pokémon Go is hosting a Magmar Community Day on Nov. 21 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. in your local time zone.

This will be the best time to grab a Shiny pink Magmar. Though Magmar and Magmortar aren’t particularly “meta” Pokémon, it has a great Shiny, so you might as well try to grab one or two.

How do I get a Shiny Magmar?

Since Magmar will be popping up everywhere, just tap every Magmar you see until you get a Shiny one. You’ll find one sooner or later, as the Shiny rate on Community Days is boosted to about a one in 24 rate.

What special move does Magmortar learn?

When evolved from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Nov. 21, Magmortar will learn Thunderbolt. Thunderbolt isn’t great on Magmortar for PvP or raiding, so you might want to avoid evolving it during the time period.

How do I make the most of this Community Day?

During the event, eggs will hatch four times as fast when they’re placed into Incubators and Incense will last three times as long. Shove all your eggs into Incubators during the event and catch a ton of Magmar to make the most of it.

Magmortar isn’t fit for PvP and it’s an OK fire-type raider, but there are much better options. It only cracks the ranks among the other fire-types when it’s Shadow Magmortar, so make sure to grab a Shadow Magmar if you see one when taking down Team Go Rocket baddies.

For raiding, give Magmortar Fire Spin with either Fire Blast or Fire Punch.

If you’re deciding which Shiny Magmar to evolve at the end of the day, try using one of the new search strings. Sort your ‘mons by “recent” using the lower right icon, and then type “4*” in the search box at the top. This will let you know if you have any 100% IV Magmar. Most people won’t be so lucky, so next you’ll want to type “3*” in the search box, which will show you any recent ‘mons that are 80% or above. Appraise these to see which one is best, and then evolve your new buddy!
