The March Community Day Announcement is here, and boy is it a good one! Maybe you’ve already guessed but, it’s none other than the tree frog himself, Treecko! When evolving this Generation III Grass type starter to its final evolution, Sceptile, we can only hope to see it become a harder hitting / glassier version of Venusaur. (making it the best pure grass type, currently, around). Sceptile will learn Frenzy Plant if evolved up to 1 hour after the Community Day. 

If the excitement of catching and evolving this cool, calm, and collected Pokémon, and its beaming shiny, isn’t enough, Niantic is bringing a Community Day FIRST! For the first time in Community Day history, all regions will be scheduled from 3pm to 6pm (in their respective time zones), on the same day!

Shiny Treecko Line

As you can see, there will be no mistaking a Shiny when you encounter it on Treecko Community Day. The bold teal/turquoise coloring of Treecko and Grovyle, along with the fiery red tail and head leaf is quite different from its regular version. It’s not until we reach Sceptile that we see the greatest difference. An entire palette change, even including the eye color.
