Pokémon GO Announces Timburr Community Day for October 2023

Pokémon GO players, get ready for Timburr Community Day, set to take place in October 2023. This event will allow Trainers to hunt for Timburr, a once exclusive Raid/Egg Pokémon, in the wild.

Timburr Community Day will take place on Sunday, October 15, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. During this time, players can expect to encounter Timburr in the wild, which is normally only available through Raids and Eggs. This makes it an exciting opportunity for Trainers who have been searching for this Shiny Pokémon.

Additionally, evolving Timburr or its evolution Gurdurr all the way up to Conkeldurr will unlock a special Dark-type Charged Attack called Brutal Swing. This move will have a power of 65 and can be used in Trainer Battles, Gyms, and raids.

Players will also have the chance to complete Field Research tasks to earn rewards such as encounters with Timburr, Great Balls, Ultra Balls, and more. There will be a Timed Research questline titled “Muscle Memories” available for purchase in the shop for $1. This exclusive Special Research story will delve deeper into the world of Timburr Community Day.

During the event, players can enjoy various bonuses including 3x Stardust for catching Pokémon, 2x chance of receiving Candy XL for Trainers level 31 and above, extended duration for activated Incense and Lure Modules, and the opportunity to make up to two Special Trades for the day. Timburr will also photobomb GO Snapshot pictures and there will be a special bonus tier featuring Gurdurr in Raid Battles.

After the Community Day event ends, players will have the chance to participate in special four-star Raid Battles. Winning these battles will cause more Timburr to appear for 30 minutes in the Gym that hosted the raid. There is also the possibility of encountering a shiny Timburr during this time.

Don't miss out on Timburr Community Day in Pokémon GO, and get ready to catch this once hard-to-find Pokémon in the wild!
