Pokemon Go’s next Community Day is just a few days away, and developer Niantic has now shared a few more details about the event. We already knew the featured Pokemon this month will be Turtwig, the Grass-type starter from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, but you’ll have even more opportunities than usual to catch some during the event.
Not only will Turtwig spawn in the wild more often than normal throughout this month’s Community Day, you’ll also be able to encounter it as a Raid boss. On top of that, any 2 km eggs that you receive from PokeStops during the event will have a chance of hatching into Turtwig, giving you plenty of ways to add the cute turtle Pokemon to your collection.
Niantic has also revealed what this month’s special event-exclusive move will be. If you’re able to evolve Turtwig’s evolved form, Grotle, into Torterra up to two hours after the event ends, the Pokemon will automatically known the powerful Grass-type attack Frenzy Plant. These event-exclusive moves are a staple of Community Days, but in the past, you only had an extra hour after the event ended to obtain them.
September’s Community Day takes place this Sunday, September 15. This time around, the event will be held much earlier than usual, from 11 AM to 2 PM local time. You can read more details about the Community Day on the official Pokemon website.
In the meantime, Pokemon Go’s second wave of Ultra Bonuses is now live. Until September 16, all four forms of the Mythical Pokemon Deoxys will appear in five-star Raid Battles, and you’ll have a chance to hatch the region-exclusive Pokemon Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros from 7 km eggs. The third wave of Ultra Bonuses will go live on September 16, and it’ll introduce the first Gen 5 Pokemon to the game.
