Charmander Takes Center Stage in Pokémon GO’s September 2023 Community Day Classic

Prepare for a fiery adventure as Charmander, the iconic Lizard Pokémon, headlines Pokémon GO’s Community Day Classic in September 2023. Set your alarms for September 2, 2023, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. local time, as Charmander emerges in the wild with the possibility of encountering a Shiny Charmander, granting Trainers an extra dose of excitement. The event also features Community Day-themed Timed Research, Field Research, and Poké Stop Showcases where Trainers can flaunt their Charmander pride. Plus, the cherry on top is the opportunity to evolve Charmeleon (Charmander’s Evolution) during the event or within two hours afterward to acquire a Char izard that wields the potent Dragon-type Fast Attack Dragon Breath and the Fire-type Charged Attack Blast Burn.

Unleash the Blazing Bonuses

During this blazing event, Trainers can enjoy some fantastic bonuses, including:

  • Triple Stardust for Pokémon catches.
  • Lure Modules activated during the event extending to a generous three hours.
  • Extended duration for Incense (excluding Daily Adventure Incense), lasting three hours.
  • Take snapshots during Community Day for delightful surprises!

Dive into a Sizzling Special Research Story

For an exclusive Charmander Community Day Classic experience, grab a ticket for the Special Research story available in the in-game shop for just US$1.00 (or the equivalent in your local currency). Don’t forget that you can also share this special experience with friends you’ve reached a Great Friends or higher friendship level with. Simply tap the “Gift” button instead of “Buy” to send a Special Research ticket as a gift.

Seize the Community Classic Day

While Charmander’s cuteness is undeniable, it evolves into the formidable Fire- and Flying-type Pokémon Char izard. Char izard shines in raids and holds a special place in the GO Battle League’s Great League and Ultra League. Though Charizard may not be the absolute strongest Fire-type in Pokémon GO, Mega Evolving it into Mega Charizard Y can elevate its status among top-tier Fire-type Pokémon.

To maximize Char izard’s potential, aim for a Charizard under 1,500 CP for the Great League, one under 2,500 CP for the Ultra League, and a fully powered-up Charizard for Raid Battles. A second Charged Attack enhances Charizard’s versatility but requires substantial Stardust and Charmander Candies. Thankfully, Charmanders will be plentiful during Community Day Classic, and extended Incense and Lure Module durations will boost your catch rate. For extra efficiency, employ Pinap Berries for additional Candy and Star Pieces for a 50% Stardust bonus for 30 minutes.

Lastly, optimizing your Pokémon’s move set is crucial. The choice of “best” moves depends on your battle strategy. For GO Battle League, where energy generation is vital, consider the Fast Attack Wing Attack for its superior energy generation. For raids, Fire-type Fast Attacks like Fire Spin may be preferable. Whether it’s raids or the GO Battle League, Blast Burn stands out as one of Char izard’s most potent Charged Attacks—so seize this opportunity to obtain a Charizard with this powerful move without the need for an Elite TM.
