Pokemon Go Community Day COUNTDOWN: Chikorita event start date, end time, Special, Shiny

 fans are counting down to the start of the September Community Day event.

The next Community Day event starts at 10am BST on September 22. As with past events, the September Community Day has a 1pm end time.

Pokemon Go fans will encounter more Chikoritas in the wild, which is ideal if you don’t have Bayleef or Meganium.

Better yet, you might even encounter a Shiny Chikorita, which can also be evolved into a Shiny Bayleef and Shiny Meganium.

Then there’s the exclusive Community Day special move, which is only available if you evolve a Bayleef into Meganium during event hours.

Doing so during the September Community event unlocks the Grass-type special move Frenzy Plant.

“You’d better Bayleef it, Trainers!” reads a Niantic tweet. “Meganium evolved during September Community Day will know the Grass-type attack Frenzy Plant, a Pokemon GO CommunityDay exclusive!”

As with all Community Day events, other bonuses will also be available to players.

Lures will last for the entire duration of the event, while capturing Pokemon earns players triple XP.

And with just a few hours to go before the September Community Day event, Niantic has given Team Valor and Team Instinct extra incentive to go out and catch some Pokemon.

According to the August Community Day stats, the blues of Team Mystic thrashed their red and yellow counterparts.

The blue team caught the most Eevees in North America, Asia, Africa and Europe; the reds of Team Valor would dominate Oceania and the yellows won the battle in South America.
