  • Community Day Special Research Storyline: This $1 Timed Research will be available in the shop. Here is what Niantic has to say about this questline:
    • "For US$1.00 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency), you'll be able to access the Axew Community Day–exclusive Special Research story, Keeping Sharp. Stay tuned for when tickets for the Special Research story go live. Don't forget: you're now able to purchase and gift tickets to any of your friends that you've achieved a Friendship level of Great Friends or higher with.* To gift a ticket, tap the Special Research ticket in the in-game shop, then tap the Gift button instead of the Buy button. Tickets are nonrefundable (subject to applicable law and the exceptions set forth in the Terms of Service). Please note that this Special Research will not include an in-game medal."

      • Niantic is now updating this to a total of five Special Trades until 10 PM due to a glitch
    • Fraxure will appear in Tier Four Raids after the event. These Raids will be in person only and Niantic notes they will feature the following bonus:
      • "Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Fraxure, additional Axew will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. If you're lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one! Axew that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokémon as those that appear during June Community Day's three-hour event period."
