On January 21, 2023, Pokemon GO will host the Community Day Classic with Larvitar. You can find out everything about the content, bonuses and how to use them here.
What is this event? The Community Day Classic is a special form of the Community Day. This twist on the usual event once again features a popular monster that has had a Community Day in the past.
So everyone who couldn’t take part in Community Day back then can now go hunting for the monster and hope for good values or a shiny.
In January, the Community Day Classic revolves around the rock and ground-type Pokemon Larvitar. Its first C-Day took place in 2018.

What? Community Day Classic with Larvitar
When? Saturday, January 21, 2023 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time
Pokemon of the day: Larvitar spawns almost anywhere in the wild
Exclusive attack: The Catapult Instant Attack. To do this, evolve Larvitar into Tyranitar between 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
– Triple Catch EXP
– Smoke and Lure Modules last 3 hours
– Snapshot surprises
In addition to the bonuses, you will, as usual, find special research for one euro in the shop. The ticket will then bring you tasks related to Larvitar and some items and encounters as a reward.
In addition, the bonuses of the current Lunar New Year 2023 event also apply.
Who is the Community Day Classic with Larvitar worthwhile for?
Basically, Larvitar isn’t as rare as it used to be, but its evolution Tyranitar is still a good rock attacker. The instant attack “catapult” is crucial for this, which you can secure at the event.
So it’s worth catching a Tyranitar with strong stats if you don’t already have one.
At the same time, you can also use the event perfectly to get candies for any Crypto versions of Larvitar, Pupitar and Despotar that you already have in your collection. Crypto Tyranitar continues to be one of the best rock and dark attackers.
In addition, Tyranitar theoretically has a Mega Evolution, for which you could catch a good specimen. However, it is not yet available in the game.
Finally, Larvitar can also be Shiny. An overview of the Shiny family of the monster can be found here:
This is how you make the most of the Community Day Classic
Prepare place: If you plan to catch a lot of Larvitar, you should sort out your Pokemon collection. Use the filter function for this: With the search term
you will only see monsters that are worse than 2 stars.
Evolve Mega Pokemon: If you evolve a Mega Pokemon of the right type, you’ll get extra candies for Larvitar when you catch them. In this case these are:
- Mega Sumpex
- Mega Steelix
- Mega Aerodactyl
Depending on the Mega Level of your Mega Pokemon, the chance of XL Candy is then also increased.
Which items are worthwhile for the Community Day Classic with Larvitar?
pineapple berries: If you are on the hunt for candies, this is the logical item. It doubles your Catch Candies, which you can use to level up your Tyranitar specimens.
Smoke & Lure Modules: The smoke will bring additional spawns as you move, while the Lure Module will bring more monsters to you if you rest at an appropriate PokéStop. Both last 3 hours, so you only need to use one item for the whole event.
Lucky Egg: If you want to double your tripled catch EXP again, you should use a lucky egg. Especially “Fabulous Throws” serve as a very good XP supplier on Community Days with XP bonuses. This can be worth it if you want to level up and catch a lot of monsters.
