Pokémon Go developer Niantic has not only revealed the September Community Day star, but also when the October and November events will be taking place.
Only a few days after the conclusion of August’s Eevee Community Weekend, the developer announced Generation II’s Chikorita will spawn more frequently across the globe on September 22nd. As usual, trainers will have three hours—11 a.m. to 2 p.m. PT—to encounter the Grass-type Pokémon and its shiny variant.
While Niantic did not divulge the exclusive move that will be available for evolved Chikoritas, it was revealed the bonus will be three times more experience earned with every catch. Lure modules will also last for three hours, so players should pop those into PokéStops once the event begins.
In a first from the company, Niantic also provided the dates for the following two Community Days. Two new Pokémon will be featured on October 21st and November 10th. With Chikorita being the first Johto starter featured, it’s likely that either Cyndaquil or Totodile will take the November spot. Looking at the pattern from the previous Community Days, Niantic has used a starter as the star every other month. As for October, it will be the spooky season, so trainers might get a Ghost-type or Psychic-type Pokémon, such as Gastly or Abra.
Until then, Niantic has one more event planned for the Pokémon Go Summer Tour. From August 29th to September 2nd, trainers in Yokosuka, Japan will be able to participate in a special Safari Zone. There will be an increase in rare spawns, as well as the introduction of the rare color-swapped version of Wingull. Players across the globe will also have challenges to complete that will unlock in-game bonuses.
Pokémon Go is available for iOS and Android.
