Hey, Trainers! Welcome back to Nerd News Social’s monthly Pokemon GO Community Day breakdown and Spotlight! I hope you’re ready to rock this month as we’re going to see a rockslide of Roggenrolla come barreling down the mountain at us!
Sunday the 18th of September is the date, 2:00 pm till 5:00 pm is the time.
Spotlight on Roggenrola
Roggenrola was kind of the Geodude of Generation 5 – this generation was a soft reset of the series with a full, 150+ Pokedex and, as such, many of the Pokemon from prior generations needed analogues to fill those niches left open by now-absent creatures.
Check out our full breakdown of Roggenrola through Gigalith Here!
Since the Level 50 upgrade of course we’ve had some minor changes to almost every family of Pokemon. Primarily upticks in Max CP. Here are your new stats and moves for Gigalith since then:
Max CP 3650, Attack 226, Defense 201, Stamina 198
Fast Attacks: Mud Slap, Smack Down (STAB)
Charged Attacks: Solar Beam, Heavy Slam, Superpower and Rock Slide (STAB) and the Community Day attack, Meteor Beam (STAB)
Shiny Roggenrola is actually not super easy to spot as it’s a slightly darker color overall, but it’s not a really stark contrast so be super careful when shiny checking your gravel. Gigalith, however, has bright cyan crystals instead of red and a purple hue to its body and honestly? It’s pretty amazing looking! Well worth hunting down a Shiny with decent stats!
Well, that’s all we’ve got for you this time around, Trainers! As per usual, I wish you the absolute best of luck. Stay safe, stay hydrated, and catch ’em all!
