Shiny Alakazam Pokémon Go: How to Catch

Community Day March 2020 will take place March 15 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m in the Northern Hemisphere and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Southern Hemisphere.

During the event, Abra will spawn more frequently and Shiny versions will also have an increased encounter rate. To catch a Shiny Abra, just keep looking for Abras during the event and you'll run into one eventually. According to the Silph Road, Shiny Community Day Pokémon appear one in about 25 encounters.

Shiny Abra is actually not that different in coloration to normal Abra. It will have slightly purple accents, but on first glance it will look nearly identical. Luckily, if you encounter a Shiny Abra there will be a sparkle to show that it is special. Look for that sparkle to determine if your Abra is Shiny or not.

For Community Day, evolving the featured Pokémon to its final form during the event and for two hours after will allow it to learn an exclusive move. Alakazam's special move has yet to be revealed.
