Get Fired Up as Pokemon GO’s September Community Day Classic Features Charmander

Charmander is back for the trifecta.

On top of this, Charizard has two Mega forms to also take into consideration! And so, Charmander is set to make its third event appearance during September’s Pokemon GO Community Day Classic.
