October’s Pokemon GO Community Day features our iconic pal Timburr. This log-wielding Fighting type Pokemon was first introduced in Generation V and has since become a popular choice on trainers’ teams. It seems like a great time to feature Timburr in Pokemon GO as it’s one of the Pokemon recently introduced into Pokemon Scarlet and Violet with The Teal Mask DLC. Below, you will learn everything you need to know to prepare for Timburr’s upcoming Pokemon GO Community Day in October.

Pokemon GO October Community Day: Timburr All Event Details

This October, Pokemon GO players can look forward to participating in a Community Day which features Timburr. Originally obtained via one-star Raids, Timburr will be much more plentiful come Community Day, allowing everyone the opportunity to catch it – and possibly even a shiny or two!

Event Date and Time

The Pokemon GO October Community Day, which features Timburr will be held on Sunday, October 15, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time.

Of course, the featured Pokemon during Community Day is Timburr. Timburr has two evolutions – Gurdurr and Conkeldurr. Trainers best keep their eyes peeled as the shiny variant looks quite similar to the regular Timburr!

Trainers can evolve Gurdurr (Timburr’s middle evolution) into Conkeldurr to obtain the Featured Attack Brutal Swing.

Brutal Swing is a Charged Attack with the following power.

  • Trainer Battles: 65 power
  • Gyms and raids: 65 power

Post Community Day Special Raids

The Community Day Special Raids will take place after Community Day ends. They will be active on Sunday, October 15, 2023, from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time

You will need to attend the Community Day Special Raids in-person. Trainers are required to use Regular or Premium Raid Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used to participate.

It’s always up to RNG whether or not you will come away with plenty of shiny Pokemon, a few, or none at all. Hopefully, RNG is on your side. Either way, October means that Pokemon GO’s Halloween event will be back for another year, and you can bet that there will be a shiny debut during the event!
