Timburr Community Day

Submit Feedback or Error

It's time to return to Unova! This time around, the esteemed Fighting Type that was set to take the Fighting Type belt from Machamp (before Lucario beat it to the punch) is in the spotlight, as none other than Timburr joins the Community Day list. While it's not getting a move that will help it out in raids, it's still a great chance to farm this powerful monster and pick up some Shinies along the way.
