With Pokémon Go‘s next Community Day right around the corner, Niantic has revealed the unique attack that Charizard, the fully evolved form of Charmander, will be able to learn on Saturday, May 19th.

According to an in-game announcement from the developer, which you can see below, May’s Community Day will feature the special Fire-type move Blast Burn. Similar to the previous iterations of the monthly event, only Charmanders that are fully evolved during the Community Day’s three-hour window, which will be from 11 a.m. PT to 2 p.m. PT, will learn the exclusive charge attack.

The powerful Fire-type attack was first introduced in the mainline series’ third generation of games, with May 19th being the first time trainers will be able to learn the move in Pokémon Go. Blast Burn will be a two-bar charge move with 100 base power, which is good news for Charizard fans. With the strong power of the new attack, the Fire/Flying-type Pokémon will be on par with the second-best Fire-type attacker currently in the mobile game, Moltres.

In addition to access to the limited-time move, the upcoming May Community Day will feature increased spawns of its star Pokémon, Charmander, as well as three times more Stardust awarded with every successful catch. Trainers will also be able to place lures on PokéStops that will last for three hours.

While unconfirmed, the biggest draw of the May 19th event will be the possibility of encountering the shiny version of Charmander. Each of the previous Community Days have featured the rare color-swapped iterations of its star creature, which means trainers should “shiny check” all of the Charmanders they come across.

Pokémon Go is available for iOS and Android.
