Chikorita headlines September Pokémon GO Community Day

August’s Pokémon GO Community Day just wrapped up this past weekend, and now players can get excited for next month’s Community Day. Niantic has announced that the next Community Day will take place on September 22 and will feature Johto region starter, Chikorita.

The event will run for 3 hours and will give players the opportunity to run into Chikorita at a higher rate. If players evolve Chikorita into final evolution Meganium during the event, Maganium will learn a special move. Niantic hasn’t revealed what the special move will be, it will be announced at a later date.

The event will also have a few new features this time around. Players will earn 3 times the XP when catching Pokémon and Lure Modules will last for three hours as a pose to the regular half hour.
