Pokémon GO for iOS features Shinx on today’s Community Day


Shinx, the flash Pokémon, is in the spotlight on today’s Pokémon GO Community Day. This creature is an Electric-type and trainers will be able to see this Pokémon more often in the wild.

According to a blog post, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, Shinx will be appearing more often and if trainers are lucky, they might encounter a Shiny version of this creature.

When evolving Luxio, Shin’x evolution during the event or up to two hours afterward, trainers will be able to get a Luxray that knows the charged attack Psychic Fangs.

Making its Pokémon GO debut, this Charged Attack will allow Luxray to lower the Defense of opposing Pokémon and inflict supereffective damage on Fighting- and Poison-type Pokémon.

Pokémon GO also explains how Psychic Fangs will be used in battles:

  • Trainer Battles: 40 Power and guaranteed to lower the opposing Pokémon’s Defense.
  • Gyms and raids: 30 Power
