Pokémon GO’s May Community Day is almost here! As usual for the event, Niantic has shared the special move Blaziken can learn through the Torchic invasion.


On Sunday, May 19th from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. (your local time), Torchic will spawn all throughout the world with an increased Shiny rate. With three hour Lures and a multiplier of three being added onto Catch Stardust payouts, this will be one big Pokémon party!

So what if you can’t make it to Community Day, or maybe you have a Blaziken buddy already? From this Community Day onward, Niantic will be including more than just one new move this Community Day. Not tied to the four hour time window, Blaze Kick is being added to the TM move pool permanently. This is an extremely welcome addition, especially for Trainers trying to build their perfect team and can’t make it to Community Day’s timeframe.


Remember to use the #PokemonGOCommunityDay hashtag on Twitter if you’re out there catching ‘mon so you can share your discoveries this weekend!
