Mudkip Community Day Re-Run

Submit Feedback or Error

Bulbasaur's rerun is long-done, and now it's time to look to the future! Next up on the list, we have Charma-...Mudkip!

A definite veer from the expected, Niantic is jumping from 2018 to 2019, as Mudkip is coming back! Among the game's starters, this Community Day is definitely among the most important for several reasons:

  • Swampert is great in the Great League
  • Swampert ultra in the Ultra League
  • Swampert a solid raider
  • This will give us a chance to add Hydro Cannon to any Shadow Swampert that some of us may have been lucky enough to get
  • It has a very good Mega Evolution on the horizon
  • It's a chance to farm a bit of XL Candy

This is definitely a Community Day that will be worth hitting for many players!
