Charmander Blazes a Trail: Pokémon GO’s September 2023 Community Day Classic

In the ever-evolving world of Pokémon GO, September 2023 brings a fiery treat for trainers worldwide with the highly-anticipated Community Day Classic featuring none other than the iconic Charmander. Set to take place on September 2, 2023, this event promises an adventure like no other in the Pokémon GO universe.

Charmander Takes the Spotlight

When it comes to classic Pokémon, it doesn’t get much more iconic than the adorable Charmander! That’s why the Lizard Pokémon is the fiery star of Pokémon GO’s September 2023 Community Day Classic. From 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. local time, trainers will have a golden opportunity to catch this beloved creature in abundance. If luck is on their side, some may even encounter the elusive Shiny Charmander during this special event.

Unlocking the Potential: Evolve to Charizard

For seasoned trainers, the highlight of the event is the chance to evolve Charmander into Charmeleon during the event or up to two hours afterward, resulting in a Charizard that boasts the coveted Dragon-type Fast Attack, Dragon Breath, and the powerful Fire-type Charged Attack, Blast Burn. This evolution opens up new doors for trainers in battles and raids.

Bonuses and Rewards Galore

To make this day even more exciting, Pokémon GO is offering a range of bonuses and rewards for participants:

  • 3× Stardust for catching Pokémon: A fantastic opportunity to stock up on Stardust, a valuable resource for trainers.
  • Extended Lure Modules: Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours, ensuring a continuous influx of Pokémon.
  • Extended Incense Duration: Incense, excluding Daily Adventure Incense, activated during the event will also last for three hours, allowing trainers to attract even more Pokémon.
  • Snapshots for Surprises: Don’t forget to take snapshots during Community Day for a chance to uncover special surprises.

Sizzling Special Research Story

For trainers seeking an even more immersive experience, a ticket for a Charmander Community Day Classic–exclusive Special Research story is available in the in-game shop for just US$1.00 (or the equivalent in your local currency). What’s more, trainers can share the joy by purchasing tickets for friends they’ve achieved a friendship level of Great Friends or higher with.

Seizing the (Community Classic) Day

Beyond its undeniable cuteness, Charmander evolves into the powerful Fire- and Flying-type Pokémon, Charizard. This evolution is not just about aesthetics; Charizard shines in Pokémon raids and is a popular contender in the GO Battle League’s Great League and Ultra League.

To make the most of Charizard’s potential, trainers are advised to aim for specific CP thresholds, including one under 1,500 CP for the Great League, one under 2,500 CP for the Ultra League, and a maximally powered-up Charizard for Raid Battles. Those seeking a second Charged Attack should be prepared with ample Stardust and Charmander Candies.

As trainers venture forth during Community Day Classic, Pinap Berries will ensure they receive extra Candy when catching Pokémon, while Star Pieces provide a 50% Stardust bonus for 30 minutes.

Mastering Charizard’s Moveset

For trainers strategizing their battles, Charizard’s moveset plays a pivotal role. In the GO Battle League, where energy generation is key, the Fast Attack Wing Attack is a top choice. In raid scenarios, a Fire-type Fast Attack like Fire Spin might be preferred. Whether facing raids or competing in the GO Battle League, the Charged Attack Blast Burn stands out as one of Charizard’s most potent moves—making this event a golden opportunity to obtain a Charizard with this prized move without needing an Elite TM.

In summary, Pokémon GO’s September 2023 Community Day Classic is a must-attend event for trainers, featuring Charmander as the star of the show. With bonuses, rewards, and the chance to unlock Charizard’s potential, it’s an adventure that should not be missed. So mark your calendars and prepare to embark on a journey into the world of Pokémon like never before.
