When is the September Community Day?
Oshawott Community Day
September has seen the Season of Mischief and the Psychic Spectacular, next up in terms of special events is the monthly Pokémon Go Community Day.

How to Evolve Oshawott
With 25 Oshawott candies, you can evolve it into a Dewott. After which, evolving Dewott during the event or up to two hours afterward to get a Samurott that knows the Charged Attack Hydro Cannon. Samurott will also be able to learn its signature attack, Razor Shell, via Charged TM during and after this event.
How to catch a Shiny Oshawott
With the Community Day will come a hoard of Oshawott, therefor a higher chance to catch a shiny Oshawott. Oshawott will be no different than other shiny Pokémon (looking at you Shiny Ditto). So bear in mind these important things:
A shiny Oshawott will not appear ‘shiny’ when on the map.
You have to tap on the Oshawott, engage it in the catch-screen and only then will you see if it’s a shiny.
