The Community Day event for March in Pokemon GO will feature Abra, giving players the perfect opportunity to catch its shiny form.
Here’s what Shiny Abra and its other evolutions look like in Pokemon GO:
Both Shiny Abra and Kadabra get lighter colors compared to their regular forms. For Shiny Alakazam, its brown colors turn magenta.
Players have a one in 24.5 chance of encountering a shiny Pokemon during Community Day events, according to research from The Silph Road.
The Abra Community Day will take place everywhere else on the world on March 15, 2020. The event will go live for players in the northern hemisphere from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time and players in the southern hemisphere from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. local time. During this time, Abra will have a higher chance of being encountered in the wild with players having a small chance of obtaining its shiny form. Abra evolved all the way up to Alakazam either during or up to two hours after the event will learn an exclusive attack move. Lure Modules will last for three hours and players will earn three times the XP for catching Pokemon during the event.
New to this Community Day is an exclusive Special Research quest that players can complete during the event. A ticket for the Special Research costs $0.99 and will award the player with 13,000 Stardust, a Poffin, a Rocket Radar, three Incense and more after completion. The ticket is nonrefundable.

Darkrai will be available from March 6 to 9, Altered Form Giratina from March 13 to 16, Cobalion from March 20 to 23 and Lugia from March 27 to 30.
