'Pokemon GO' Community Day July 2021 Guide: How to Catch Tepig in a Special Research + Event Bonuses
It's that monthly event in Pokemon GO where the game's community meet for fun and catching Pokemon as Community Day is back for this month of July.
This month's Community Day will feature Tepig as the event's Pokemon in focus. One of the three starter Pokemon of the Unova Region that debuted in Pokemon Black and White, the Fire Pig Pokemon will have an increased spawn rate within the game during the duration of the event.
According to GamePress.gg, Tepig can be obtainable through catches or special researches. The event will also make way for the Shiny version of Tepig, which it has an increased chance of being spotted during Community Day hours.
Keep in mind that when they are combatting and catching Tepig, they need to know its weakness. Based on a chart made by Eurogamer, Fire-type Pokemon, Tepig included, is weak against Rock, Dragon, Water, and fellow Fire-types and vulnerable to Ground, Rock, and Water-Types.
With this in mind, they need to have their Pokemon Team that is focused on these types in order to catch Tepig easily. Also, players need to have items such as Incense and Lure Modules for Tepig spawns within the area.
