Bonuses 3x Catch XP

Here are Bagon, Shelgon, and Salamence normal and shiny sprites for comparison:

We’re quite excited for this Community Day, as Bagon is essentially Generation III’s equivalent of Dratini. The introduction of a CD exclusive move could help Salamence outperform Dragonite, if the exclusive move is Outrage. However, there’s a lot of speculation about Fly being Salamence’s CD exclusive, given that it fits with Bagon’s lore and Pokedex entry:

“Bagon harbors a never-ending dream of one day soaring high among the clouds. As if trying to dispel its frustration over its inability to fly, this Pokémon slams its hard head against huge rocks and shatters them into pebbles.”

In any case, time will tell – stay on the lookout for that!
