'Pokémon Go' Releases Shiny Gible But Some Fans Aren't Happy About Latest Update

A new update has arrived in Pokémon Go, changing up the Egg Pool of which Pokémon hatches from which Eggs. But one aspect fans of the popular mobile game were not expecting was the release of Shiny Gible.

Gible is the pseudolegendary Pokémon of the Sinnoh region and its final evolution, Garchomp, has always been considered one of the best battlers in all of Pokémon. Gible is notoriously hard to find in the overworld of Pokémon Go, but can be hatched from the 10km Eggs.

This revelation has also concerned many players that the Ground and Dragon-type Pokémon won't be featured in the next Community Day event.

Niantic confirmed that the next Community Day event will take place on January 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time. And the release of Shiny Gible likely means that it won't receive the spotlight that other Pokémon have. Community Day has also been the best time to catch and stock up on a particular Pokémon's candy used to level up or evolve them.

If Gible doesn't receive a Community Day, many trainers are afraid they'll have to get lucky and hatch one from an egg. Read a few of the replies from the official Pokémon Go Twitter account to see some of the ire.
