Pokemon GO: Community Day
May 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
With the fourth Community Day now behind us, Pokemon Go players can begin looking forward to next month’s event. Niantic has announced the first details for May’s Community Day, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 19, and will feature another very popular Pokemon from the Red and Blue versions.
As always, the event begins at different times depending on where you live and will run for three hours. In the US, it kicks off at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET and ends at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET; in Europe and Africa, the Community Day takes place from 10 AM – 1 PM UTC; and in the Asia-Pacific region, the event lasts from 12 PM – 3 PM JST.

During the event, any Lure Modules that are activated will last for three hours. In addition to that, players will receive triple the normal amount of Stardust for capturing Pokemon.
The featured Pokemon during May’s Community Day is another Kanto starter: the Fire-type Charmander. During the event, Charmander will spawn in much greater numbers than usual. Niantic hasn’t revealed what special move the Pokemon will be able to learn, though if the past few Community Days have been any indication, players will presumably need to evolve Charmander into Charizard before the event ends to learn the exclusive attack.
Get out and play together in your local community parks on Pokémon GO Community Day. For just a few hours each month, you can encounter a special Pokémon in the wild. During these hours, there’s a chance to learn a previously unavailable move for that Pokémon or its evolution, as well as earn some Community Day bonuses. Celebrate what it means to be a part of the Pokémon GO community and make new friends along the way!Note: Fast TMs and Charged TMs will not grant exclusive moves during Community Day. To learn the exclusive move, you must catch or evolve the featured Pokémon during Community Day hours.
