Shinx the Pokemon

Shinx is the featured Pokemon in this Community day. It is an electric type Pokemon and can evolve twice. It evolves into Luxio for 25 Shinx candy (or rare candy) and then again into Luxray for 100 Shinx candy (or rare candy).

The Shiny version is available in this Community Day

In terms of PvP Shinx and its evolvutions Luxio and Luxray don’t really stand out as particularly useful Pokemon to use. Luxray has relatively fragile Bulk and gets outclassed by stronger Electric Pokemon. In PvE it fairs a little better but is still not a standout choice

New Community Day move

During this Community day and for two hours directly after the event, evolving Luxio in Luxray will teach Luxray the new charge attack Psychic Fangs.

This move makes its Pokemon GO debut and is a Psychic type move. It is super effective against Poison and Fighting types

The move will lower the Defence of opposing Pokemon and has the following values

  • Trainer Battles (PvP) – 40 Power and guaranteed to lower the opposing Pokemon’s Defence
  • Gyms and Raids (PvE) – 30 Power

Thoughts on the Shinx Community Day

The Shiny version of Shinx will be readily available and is one of the nicer looking shines available.

Shinx as a Pokemon is not a particularly standout for PvP or PvE. This follows last month’s Community Day which was Duskell which was also not a standout choice

The new Psychic Fang move could be handy to spam use to bait shields and/or lower enemy Defence, although on Luxray im not sure it will be particularly effective. It would be better suited to Pokemon that can benefit from STAB (same type attack bonus) with better bulk

The boosts in this event however are really nice and will lead us nicely into the final December Community day. The 3x Transfer candy is excellent for cleaning out Pokemon Storage which will be especially useful for the Two day Community day the next month
