October Pokemon Go Community Day – Charmander Returns

Hey, Trainers! Community Day is on us once again, this time featuring the runner up from the poll conducted in August – Charmander! This month it takes place on Saturday, the 17th of October, between the hours of 11:am and 5:00pm.

If you want more information on Charmander and its evolutions, as well as the other options we had to pick from, you can check out my breakdown of them Here, where I go into detail on the lore and battle capability of the original, Generation 1 Fire Starter.

So, what can we expect on the day?

  • 3x catch Stardust! (4.5 with a Star Piece active.)
  • 3 hour duration for Incense activated during event hours.
  • A one time offer Community Day box containing 30 Ultra Balls, 3 Super Incubators, 3 Star Pieces, and an Elite Charged TM. The cost on this is the usual 1280 Poke-coins.
  • Photo bombs! If prior events are anything to go by, you’ll get 5. The perfect way to get a little closer to that gold Photographer badge.
  • There’s a Special Research available for $1 or your local equivalent. A Tale of Tails!
  • Speaking of Research, exclusive Timed Research will give you Charizard Mega Energy.
  • Evolve your Charmander or Charmeleon all the way through to Charizard and it will know the Fast Attack Dragon Breath. Super useful for those Mega Charizard X users as it becomes STAB.
  • Boundless bounties of Charmander abound.
  • You may encounter a Shiny Charmander!
  • So, there’s more going on during this Charmander Community Day than was the case last time around; this is, of course, the little candle-bottomed lizard’s second time in the spotlight. I’m excited for this Community Day being as this Pokemon is one of my favorites, and hopefully, everyone else will have some fun with it too!

    As always, I wish you the best of luck catching a Shiny or two. They’re a bright yellow-orange so not exactly hard to spot. Stay safe out there, Trainers! Remember to social distance, wear those masks, and take it easy at home if you’re not feeling well – the other difference between this Charmander Community Day and the last time is that Niantic has made it easier than ever before to join in the fun from the safety and comfort of your own home. However you choose to play, I hope you have an awesome time!
