October is just around the corner, and Pokemon Go developer Niantic has already announced a handful of events happening in the game next month. Beyond the fashion-themed event, Niantic is hosting another Community Day on Saturday, October 17, and the studio has now shared some more details about it.
As previously revealed, the featured Pokemon for October’s Community Day will be Charmander, the runner-up in Niantic’s recent Community Day poll. Throughout the event, Charmander will appear in the wild and in Raids more often than usual, making this a good opportunity to stock up on Charmander Candy. On top of that, you’ll have a better chance of encountering Shiny Charmander during the event.
This isn’t the first time Charmander has been the star of a Community Day; the Gen 1 starter was also the featured Pokemon back in May 2018, but this time around it will be able to learn a new event move. Every Charmander that you evolve all the way into Charizard up to two hours after the Community Day ends will learn the Dragon-type attack Dragon Breath. This applies to any Charmander that evolves during the designated time frame, even if you’ve caught them prior to the event.
