"Pokemon GO" continues the tradition of bringing communities together for its monthly Community Day. For the month of May, the Pokemon Niantic chose to feature is Charmander and its evolutions. As with every Community Day, the evolutionary line gets the spotlight with an exclusive move for that line. In this case, the exclusive move is Blast Burn, a two-bar move that does 100 base damage.

How to get Blast Burn

It is quite simple to get a Charizard with Blast Burn.

Community Day lasts for three hours, from 12 PM to 3 PM Mountain Daylight Time. All players need to do is evolve a Charmeleon into Charizard within the three-hour window of the event. Acquiring a Charizard is going to be a cinch. Because of the event, Charmander will spawn more frequently, regardless of biome and weather. In addition, by using Pinap Berries to double the amount of candy received from Pokemon caught, players can quickly get the 125 candies required to evolve into Charizard.

The only problem players might have during this Community Day is running out of Pokeballs since there are so many Charmander to catch. To avoid this, players should stock up in the coming days so they don't run out at an inopportune moment.

Community Day also brings other perks for players

Of course, a Charizard with Blast Burn is not the only thing players can receive during Community Day. If May's Community Day is anything like previous Community Days, the chances of encountering a shiny Charmander also go up.

Shiny Pokemon are Pokemon that are colored differently than regular Pokemon, and to encounter one, players need a lot of luck on their side.

To further increase the odds of encountering a shiny Charmander, the duration of lures has also been increased from 30 minutes to three hours. In order to maximize the lures' effectiveness, players should place them down on stops where Pokemon frequently spawn.

While an exclusive move and increased odds for a shiny Pokemon are the main focus of the event, they're not the only thing. For every Pokemon caught, players will receive three times the Stardust. Stardust and candies are what make Pokemon stronger in "Pokemon GO," so having copious amounts of both is necessary in order to create good Gym defenders and attackers. To get even more Stardust, players should use a Star Piece, which gives players an additional 50 percent in terms of Stardust they would have received from any action that gives out Stardust.
