As Trainers will already know, Niantic is providing some top bonuses and rewards today, during a monthly three-hour event.

The Pokemon Go July community day kicks off in a couple of hours in the UK and will let players beef up their Squirtle numbers.

Another big reward being released today includes the chance of catching a shiny Squirtle in the wild.

The July 2018 Community Day event has a 10am start time and a 1pm end time on Sunday, July 8.

And if players catch enough Squirtles to evolve a Blastoise, they will also get to unlock an exclusive move.

Hydro Cannon is an unusual move that can only be earned for a Blastoise during the three-hour event.

But while that all sounds pretty exciting, players can also unlock another unique variant for their Squirtle.

If you complete Field Research tasks during the community day hours, you will also have a chance to encounter Squirtles sporting sunglasses.

Reports today from Trainers already enjoying the community day rewards in other regions suggests that the Squirtle will also be a shiny variant.

So it appears that the “catch five Squirtle” quest is the one to complete to earn the special reward today.

On top of all the Squirtle rewards, Trainers can also enjoy a few other bonuses.

Lures will be active during the Squirtle Day event, while 1/4 egg hatch distances will also be running.

Here’s more from Niantic, who added: “Get out and play together in your local community parks on Pokémon GO Community Day.

“For just a few hours each month, you can encounter a special Pokémon in the wild. During these hours, there’s a chance to learn a previously unavailable move for that Pokémon or its evolution, as well as earn some Community Day bonuses.

“Celebrate what it means to be a part of the Pokémon GO community and make new friends along the way.

“Fast TMs and Charged TMs will not grant exclusive moves during Community Day. To learn the exclusive move, you must catch or evolve the featured Pokémon during Community Day hours.”

Niantic is also running a second-anniversary event starring Pikachu.

Fans can unlock the ‘summer style’ Pikachu, complete with a straw hat and sunglasses.

During the Pokemon Go Pikachu event, Pichu and Pikachu will spawn more frequently.

Running until July 31, there’s even a rare Shiny version for Pokemon Go trainers to catch.

Pokemon Go is currently available on Android and iOS tablets and mobile phones.
