November’s Pokémon Go Community Day will feature the monkey fire-type Pokémon, Chimchar.

The Community Day will take place on Nov. 16 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m, local time. During this time, Chimchar will spawn much more frequently, and players will have an increased chance to nab its Shiny form.

While the exclusive move isn’t listed yet on the announcement page, it’s very likely going to be Blast Burn, which is the same move all the other fire-type starters learned on their Community Days. (Niantic, you ain’t fooling anyone!)

As an added bonus, lures will last for three hours instead of 30 minutes, and eggs will hatch four times faster than usual.

With Blast Burn, Chimchar’s evolution, Infernape, still won’t match up to better fire-type DPS like Blaziken or Chandelure. However, it’s still worth getting out there to nab a monkey of your own, especially if you like its Shiny form or you need the Pokédex entry.
