Pokemon GO Community Day October 2020 events have been revealed.

Niantic Labs, eager to engage with its trainer community, put up a poll on their official Twitter account to let the audience decide which Pokemon would get the coveted Community Day spot. Grimer, Caterpie, and fan-favorite Charmander all lost out to the Digital Pokemon, Porygon. Charmander came in a close second so, as a consolation, Porygon would be featured in the September Community Day while Charmander would have its spotlight in October.

Pokemon GO Community Day October 2020: Charmander Details

Unfortunately, not a lot of details have been revealed for when Charmander will spearhead October's Community Day event. Most of the information making the rounds is speculation. However, as Niantic tends to do things cyclically and by tradition, predictions can be made.

It's likely that Community Day will take place later in the month—around Oct. 15-20—as not to conflict with the multitude of events the company has planned.

As with all Community Days, Charmander will be available for encounters in the wild at an extremely inflated rated. This will come with an increased shiny chance, possible appearance of its evolutions in raids, and a unique Community Day research story available for purchase in the shop.

More information about Niantic's jam-packed October schedule can be found on the Pokemon GO official blog.
