Pokémon Go’s next Community Day in September will be focused on the Sinnoh region grass-type starter, Turtwig.

The Community Day will take place on Sept. 15 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in your local time. Note that this is quite a bit earlier than the previous Community Days.

The event will feature an increased spawn rate to Turtwigs and an increased chance to grab Shiny versions of the lovely plant-turtle-thing.

During the three-hour period, lures will last for three hours instead of 30 minutes and players will get tripled Stardust from catching Pokémon.

The special move Torterra will learn when evolved is still a mystery on the Pokémon Go website, but based on past patterns, it’s likely going to be the powerful grass-type move that goes to all the grass starters: Frenzy Plant. Torterra likely won’t become the best grass-type attacker from this alone, but it will end up being pretty dang strong.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
