The Pokemon for this month’s community day in Pokemon GO has been announced and its the first from the Johto region. It is grass-type Pokemon Chikorita. The Pokemon is set to appear much more frequently in the wild and it is your turn to catch it. The special event takes place for three hours on Saturday 22nd of September. Here’s a few other details direct from the official Pokemon GO blog as well as times.
“If you evolve a Bayleef into Meganium during the three-hour window, your new Meganium will know the powerful Charged Attack Frenzy Plant, a move Meganium cannot normally learn. You won’t be able to teach Meganium this move using a Charged TM, so don’t forget to evolve your Bayleef before the event ends! During the event, you’ll also earn three times the usual XP for catching Pokémon, Lure Modules will last for three hours, and you might even have your first encounter with a Shiny Chikorita.”
