Charmander Burns Bright on Pokémon GO Community Day

Catch Charmander, get a special move for Charizard, and earn more Stardust during this community celebration!

The latest Pokémon GO Community Day is upon us! Community Days are monthly worldwide festivities dedicated to celebrating Pokémon GO's vast community of Trainers who have helped make the game such a phenomenon.

This month's Pokémon GO Community Day will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018, and Charmander will be the featured Pokémon of the day. During a three-hour window that day, wild Charmander will appear with much greater frequency than normal. You'll want to catch as many as you can during that time period. Charmander evolve into Charmeleon, and if you evolve a Charmeleon into Charizard during those three hours, it will know the attack Blast Burn! Only Charizard that evolve or are caught during the Community Day festivities will learn this awesome move.

In addition to all the Charmander excitement, all Pokémon caught during the event hours will award three times the usual Stardust. Plus, Lure Modules will remain active for three hours, helping Trainers get the most out of the occasion. Check below to find out when the event hours fall in your region of the world:

  • The Americas: May 19, 2018, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (PDT)

  • The Asia-Pacific region: May 19, 2018, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (JST)

  • Europe, the Middle East, and Africa: May 19, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (UTC)

So stock up on Poké Balls, get your Lure Modules ready, and prepare to meet up with fellow Trainers to celebrate the Pokémon GO community! When you share your experiences on social media, remember to use the hashtag #PokemonGOCommunityDay so everyone sees your accomplishments. We'll see you on May 19, and make sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming Pokémon GO Community Days on Saturday, June 16, and Sunday, July 8!
