The 9th in a row Community Day event will bring Chikorita as the Special Pokemon, and Pokemon Go Trainers will see increased spawn rate of this Pokemon for 3-hours on September 22.
Not only do we get Chikorita as the Special Pokemon, with the option for it to be shiny, but we also get 3-hour Lures and 3x Catch XP. Also, evolving Bayleef into Meganium will learn Frenzy Plant.
The event runs at specific times and you can find them below:
- The Asia-Pacific region: from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM JST (GMT +9);
- Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM UTC (GMT +0);
- The Americas and Greenland: from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM PDT (GMT -7).
What about Chikorita’s 100% IV CP chart?
Nothing to worry about, we got your back as the following CP indicate a possible 100% IV Chikorita. One with higher Lvl but lower IV could share some CP.
|31||698 WEATHER BOOST|
|32||709 WEATHER BOOST|
|33||721 WEATHER BOOST|
|34||732 WEATHER BOOST|
|35||744 WEATHER BOOST|

For those who don’t know what this text can do, here is an explanation, thanks to ridddle:
You can use your phone’s ability to create text replacement and compress it to a phrase, like pchiko which, when typed in Pokémon GO’s search input will expand to the full thing.
Now, the string itself is a search query. 152 is Chikorita’s Pokédex ID. & is an operator telling the search “Chikorita AND whatever is typed after me”. The text afterwards is pretty much what OP had on the infographic – the exact CP values for Chikorita on level 1, 2, 3… up to 35, when they’re 100% IVs (15/15/15).
This doesn’t mean that every, let’s say, cp204 Chikorita will be 100%. But if it’s level 9, it will be 100%. So the search will show you all possible CP matches, and you have to go through them and appraise individually to see if they are really 100%. You can use CalcyIV on Android or PokeGenie on iOS.
The main takeaway here is that you’re appraising a fraction of your whole Chikorita collection in your bag.
So yes, Calcy is really fast but if 100% search query has a workload of 2.21%, then for every 100 possible Chikorita in your bag you don’t have to check 98 of them. Just 2. It’s HUGE.
This is really useful during a Community Day, if you want to evolve only a high IVs pokémon. Because the search allows you to check what’s good (and there are search queries for 98%+, 96%, etc), you can discard everything else and keep catching.
