September 15's Pokemon Go Community Day Event Stars Turtwig
Turtwig will be the focus of next month’s Pokémon Go Community Day.
Community Day in Pokémon Go are monthly events where players meet up with other players at local community parks to try to capture special Pokémon. If you can fully evolve this special Pokémon before the event ends, they have the chance to learn a new move that it previously couldn’t learn in the game. These events generally last for only a couple of hours.
The grass-turtle Pokémon Turtwig is the focus of the upcoming Community Day event on Sept. 15. The event lasts for three hours, starting at 11 AM local time and ends at 2 PM. The previous Community Day event focused on Ralts. The bonuses for Turtwig Community Day are three times the amount of Stardust, and three-hour lure modules.
Turtwig is the grass starter from the Sinnoh region, the fourth generation of Pokémon games. It first appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Turtwig is a pure grass Pokémon, meaning it is weak against fire, ice, poison, flying, and bug-type moves. It is, however, strong against water, ground, and rock-type Pokémon.
It will fully evolve into Torterra, a giant tortoise with a landmass on its back. Torterra becomes grass and ground-type, making it utterly immune to electric attacks, but gives it a four times weakness against ice.
If Turtwig fully evolves into a Torterra before the event ends, the Pokémon learns an exclusive move. The Pokémon Go website did not list what move it will learn.
Turtwig Community Day event in Pokémon Go will happen on Sept. 15.
