Pokemon Go's October 2020 Community Day Details Announced

October has arrived, and Pokemon Go developer Niantic has already announced a handful of events happening in the game this month. Beyond the fashion-themed event that’s now underway, 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.

Finally, a few other bonuses will be available during October’s Community Day. As usual, any Incense that you use during the event will remain active for three hours instead of the usual 30 minutes. Additionally, you’ll earn triple the normal amount of Stardust for each Pokemon you catch throughout the event. There will also be a Community Day-exclusive Special Research story called A Tale of Tails. Tickets to access the story will cost $1 USD, and completing it will net you a variety of rewards including Charizard Mega Energy.

Like the past few Community Day’s, October’s event will run for six hours instead of the traditional three, from 11 AM to 5 PM local time. That means you’ll have until 7 PM local time to evolve Charmander and get a Charizard that knows Dragon Breath. You can read more about the event on the official Pokemon Go website.

In the meantime, the Legendary Pokemon Moltres is appearing in five-star Raids until October 9. There are numerous other events lined up for Pokemon Go this month, including the game’s annual Halloween event. While details on that are still scarce, Niantic has teased that it will introduce Mega Gengar during the event. Niantic has also said it is phasing out some of Pokemon Go’s pandemic bonuses starting October 1.
