Pokemon GO Goomy Community Day takes place on June 9, 2024, from 2 pm to 5 pm local time. During this period, Goomy will spawn in large numbers around you. The pseudo-Legendary from the Kalos region had its shiny release during GO Fest 2023, so the event bonuses and the chance to farm Goomy Candy and Candy XL are the biggest driving factors for this event.

Goodra, Goomy's final evolution, is a strong pick across all formats of PvP battles. It can also do well as a Gym defender. Therefore, the Pokemon GO Goomy Community Day gives you the chance to capture versions of the critter with the best PvP IVs. Moreover, evolving Sliggoo into Goodra during the event will give you a variant of the critter that knows Thunder Punch.

This article will discuss the gameplay advantages across PvP and PvE you can expect from the Pokemon GO Goomy Community Day.

Is Thunder Punch Goodra worth it in Pokemon GO?

The addition of Thunder Punch to Goodra's move pool only improves its position in the Great League of Pokemon GO. In the Ultra League and Master League, Goodra's best moveset still does not include Thunder Punch. This is because of the number of Flying-type and Water-type Pocket Monsters that dominate the most accessible PvP format of the GO Battle League.

In PvE battles, Thunder Punch does Goodra no favors. The move is generally considered a second choice for Gyms and Raids anyway, and the fact that Goodra does not get either Same Type Attack Bonus (STAB) nor does it have an outstandingly high Attack stat, makes this addition practically useless in PvE battles.

Is Pokemon GO Goomy Community Day worth playing?

From a PvP perspective, the availability of Thunder Punch Goodra can be a solid addition to your roster. Other than that, this is a great opportunity to collect a Goomy with good IVs for trainer battles.

Speaking for PvE, there is not much to look forward to in the Pokemon GO Goomy Community Day other than potentially catching a perfect IV version of the critter.
