Conclusion

As with previous Community Day Announcements, the exclusive move was not confirmed, but we expect it to fall in line with the previous Water-type starters, Blastoise and Feraligatr, and receive Hydro Cannon.  There is also the possibility, and it is purely speculation at this point, that Niantic could go the route they took with Torchic/Combuskin/Blaziken and introduce Muddy Water as a permanent, TM-able Charge Move for Swampert on Community Day. Stay tuned to Go Hub as we will inform you as soon as confirmation of the exclusive move is made public.
