What you need to know

  • The featured Pokémon for September and October 2020 Community Days will be selected by the players.
  • Players will be able to vote on one of four Pokémon with first place being featured in September and the runner up being featured in October.
  • The Pokémon which players can choose from are Caterpie, Porygon, Grimer, and Charmander.

Once again, Niantic has announced that the players will be selecting the next couple Pokémon to be featured in Pokémon Go Community Day. There have been several Community Day Pokémon selected by the players thus far, including Weedle, Rhyhorn, and Gastly. Although Niantic has not confirmed how players will vote, it is likely there will be another poll on Twitter where players can vote for one of four Pokémon. Niantic has also taken votes through field research in the past, but it seems as though Twitter polls are preferred.

Niantic has also not announced the details for Community Day exclusive moves, but the announcement did include the four possible Pokémon. Trainers will be able to vote for Caterpie, Charmander, Porygon, or Grimer. Of these Pokémon, Charmander has already been featured in a Community Day, but it is also a fan favorite and the only Pokémon featured whose final stage can Mega Evolve. Charizard is also one of only two Pokémon to have multiple Mega Evolutions: Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y. Mega Evolution is coming to Pokémon Go soon, so if Charmander is selected, we may see its Community Day used to introduce this new game mechanic.
