The Pokémon Go fanbase has been treated to news about level cap raises in a huge update for Beyond, but trainers shouldn’t forget that there’s a community day right around the corner that will help to get Shiny Magmar. Similar to Electabuzz and Electivire, here you’ll discover how to get Shiny Magmar in Pokémon Go, and how to evolve it into a Magmortar that knows Thunderbolt.
Aside from the forthcoming community day, there’s still the Home event with its own tasks and rewards available to complete until 22:00 local time on November 23rd. Once that’s over and done with, there will then be a Lake Legends event on November 24th.
But, away from the Home event and Lake Legends update, below you’ll discover how to get Shiny Magmar in Pokémon Go, and how to evolve it into a Magmortar that knows Thunderbolt.
How to get Shiny Magmar in Pokémon Go during community day
You have from 11:00 until 17:00 local time on November 21st to get a Shiny Magmar in Pokémon Go during community day.
During the Magmar community day, the creature will be appearing more frequently in the Wild of Pokémon Go with a Shiny available to get for those who are lucky.
As well as the above prospect, the community day will also provide trainers with the chance of hatching Magby from 2km Eggs.
Not only that, but there will also be exclusive Timed Research tasks available to complete, and these will offer Sinnoh Stones plus other items as rewards.
How to evolve Magmar into Magmortar in Pokémon Go
You need 100 Magmar candy and one Sinnoh Stone to evolve the creature into Magmortar in Pokémon Go.
Trainers will be able to evolve Magmar into a Magmortar that knows Thunderbolt in Pokémon Go on November 21st from 11:00 until 19:00 local time.
Although the creature’s community day only lasts until 17:00 local time, Niantic say that players have an extra two hours to complete the above transformation.
