They are the henchmen, the Leader must be special, and if everyone has many that are Leader-like then it won’t be special anymore. Anything sparkly isn’t boring, @S0PK. Not every Pokemon that gets a new move needs to be meta relevant.This community day really highlights the better things about Pokemon Go, and Niantic did it well (except for the sunglasses on Squirtle, it looks a little Photoshopped). Also, with the Triple and Double XP happening now, this is the perfect time to have both the Articuno day and Squirtle Community Day, it lets people grind more and play more. But I agree, the raids for 3 hours and the search for shinies for another 3 hours can wear someone down.
