The new Pokemon recently on the official Pokémon Go Community Day is Chikorita.
Get to know the Chikorita Pokemon
Based on the information found on the Pokemon Go page, Chokorita is a Johto Grass-type Starter Pokémon which comes with improves spawns and you will be able to get it on 22nd of September from 2 to 5 p.m. During that period of time, Chikorita will evolve into a Meganium, similarly to past Community Day events. The pokemon in the case will also learn a new attack.
It was not yet confirmed what kind of attack it would be, but in March a new pokemon, Venusaur, learned the Frenzy Plant attack and Chikorita might get the same one as well.
Even though you might not catch Chikorita during the Community Day event, as long as during that period it evolves into a Meganium, it will learn that move. To make it evolve it needs 125 Chikorita Candy to evolve the Grass-type into Bayleef and then Meganium. It will not be a problem for you to collect this number of Candy because the pokemon comes with increased spawns.
Guess who gets some new bonuses? Yap, you!
During the Pokémon Go Community Day Chikorita event, you will get increased experienced if you capture a Pokemon besides the three-hour Lures. With every Pokemon you catch successfully, you will get three times the amount of experience.
The event might also bring you the Shiny Chikorita and other rare versions of the new Pokemon.
How to encounter a Shiny Chikorita

- See if the Chikorita will have thegreen coloring or it will come in a shiny orangey version.
- That is it. Enjoy your gaming session!
