Learn Special Move: Hydro Cannon

Pokemon GO January Community Day Totodile
Time To Learn Move Throughout Community Day and 1 hour after

Totodiles evolved into Feraligatr during Community Day & within the specific time frame will learn the special move - Hydro Cannon!

Hydro Cannon Is A Powerful Water Type Move

If your Feraligatr learns Hydro Cannon, it deals much stronger DPS than a Blastoise with the same move.

DPS is based on the Pokemon's base stats and attack power of the above-stated move sets.

Hydro Cannon Can't Be Learned By TM

You cannot use a Charge TM to learn Hydro Cannon. It's best to evolve a Totodile into a Feraligatr during Community Day in order to learn this special move.

Cannot Be Learned When Unlocking 2nd Charge Move

Hydro Cannon cannot also be learned when you teach your Pokemon its 2nd Charge Move. You can only receive this special move by evolving a Totodile into Feraligatr during its specified hours.

GPS Error Can Stop You From Learning Hydro Cannon

Take note that you shouldn't evolve your Totodile when you are receiving a "GPS Signal Not Found" error. This may lead to your Pokemon not learning the special move even while it is still Community Day.

Correlation Of Totodile's CP & IV

CP Is Good For Great League

If you catch a Totodile that has CP of 580 or less, it can evolve into a Feraligatr with high enough CP to quality for the Great League Trainer battles!

Totodiles Hatched From Egg Cannot Be Used For Great League

Totodiles that players hatch from eggs and then evolve will probably have CP higher than the limits for the trainer battle leagues, so it's not recommended to use these Pokemon for battle.

Totodile CP Range At 100% Individual Value (IV)

The CP of a Totodile that is 100% IV will change depending on your Trainer Level. Check the table below to find out what CP of Totodile you should catch when hunting for a perfect IV Pokemon.

Preparations For Community Day

Don't Put Eggs In Incubator Before Community Day

Pokemon GO January Community Day Totodile

As much as possible, keep all your eggs outside of incubators before Community Day. Since all eggs placed in incubators will only take 1/4th distance to hatch, it's best to save your eggs for Community Day!

Choose A High IV Totodile To Evolve

Don't forget to favorite and keep high IV Totodiles that you have caught! Evolve them during Community Day and you'll receive a very strong Feraligatr with a special move - Hydro Cannon.

Collect & Save Many Ultra Balls
