Is it Worth Evolving Gible – Earth Power Garchomp Analysis
Garchomp is already one of the better Ground attackers in the game, both for PvP in the GO Battle League and for raids. Earth Power Garchomp is simply better in almost every way though. While the last few CD events have focused on PvP exclusive moves, this time it’s an all around boost to attack power.
Garchomp mostly works best in the Master League though, so if you’re a Great or Ultra League player exclusively then you can somewhat avoid spending the Gible Candy to evolve. But still, you’ll want a few for raids or the occasional ML match. Overall, you’ll be well served evolving a few Gible into Gabite and then into Earth Power Garchomp if you have the Candy to spare. You may not need a full team of six or anything, but there isn’t a lot of reason to avoid it this time, like there has been in the past.
How to Catch Shiny Gible
Shiny Gible has been available before, but you’d be hard pressed to find someone who has actually caught one. On Community Day though you’ll likely find a few just playing casually. If you focus on a few of our tips and tricks you can come away with a nice collection of Shiny Gible, and even evolve a few, especially if they have high IVs.
With this in mind, the Just a Nibble ticket will be a nice benefit, if you’re alright spending the $1, and can complete it during the event. The encounters will give you more chances, and will have better IVs than most wild catches. Otherwise make sure you perform the photobombs, and then it’s all about encountering as many Gible as you can in the wild.
Tap every Gible you see, and if you don’t have time to catch them and they aren’t shiny you can back out. You can also quick catch some for the Candy and boosted XP by dragging your finger and holding on the Berry menu button, grabbing and tossing the ball with you other hand, then releasing and tapping to exit. You can also keep track of which wild Gible you’ve already shiny checked by seeing if they are facing toward where you were standing when you might have encountered them.
