Pokémon Go's May Community Day will let you get a shiny Charizard

Fire starter.

Fire starter Charmander will be the star of Pokémon Go's next Community Day, the game's monthly meetup event.

May's Community Day will be held on Saturday 19th - a change from the past two month's Sunday gatherings - during the usual 10am to 1pm timeframe in the UK.

The usual three hour lures will be in effect, along with triple Stardust for catching Pokémon and a special move when you evolve your Charmander up to Charizard within the event time-frame (Blast Burn seems most likely).

But the thing all Pokémon Go players want is a shiny Charizard - which is one of, if not the fan favourite shiny Pokémon design. Community Days drastically boost the rate at which the featured Pokémon's shiny form is encountered - so look for lots of these guys in gyms soon after.
