The next Pokemon GO Community Day event will take place on May 19.

Fire-type Charmander is the featured Pokemon for the fifth Pokemon GO Community Day event.

The Pokemon can learn an exclusive move when caught or evolved during event hours. As usual, Fast Technical Machines and Charged Technical Machines will not grant exclusive moves during community event hours.

Pokemon GO Community Day bonuses for May will include three hours lures, and 3X the normal stardust.
