Pokemon Go’s January Community Day is only a few days away, but Niantic has already shared details about next month’s event. February’s Community Day will take place on Sunday, February 7, and the featured Pokemon next month will be the Grass/Poison type Roselia.
Throughout February’s Community Day, Roselia will appear in the wild much more frequently than normal, while its pre-evolved form, Budew, will hatch from 2 km eggs. You’ll also have a chance to encounter Shiny Roselia in the game, and there will be Timed Research tasks to complete. These will reward you will Sinnoh Stones, which you’ll need to evolve Roselia into Roserade.
If you do manage to evolve Roselia during the event, your Roserade will know two special moves: the Fast Attack Bullet Seed and the Charged Attack Weather Ball. The latter’s typing typically varies, but Roserade’s Weather Ball will deal Fire-type damage. You’ll have up to two hours after the Community Day ends to evolve Roselia and learn the special Community Day moves.
Finally, Niantic will offer two in-game bonuses during February’s Community Day. Any eggs you place in an Incubator during the event will hatch at a quarter of their normal distance, and any Incense that you use will remain active for three hours. The studio will also sell a special Community Day box in Pokemon Go’s in-game shop. The box will cost 1,280 PokeCoins and includes the following:
- 1 Elite Fast TM
- 4 Incense
- 4 Super Incubators
- 30 Ultra Balls
February’s Community Day runs from 11 AM to 5 PM local time. You can read more about the event on the official Pokemon Go website. As usual, Niantic will also offer a paid Special Research story during the Community Day. A ticket for that costs $1 USD, but thanks to an early purchase bonus, you can get a ticket for free if you purchase a Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto ticket by February 3. You’ll also get a ticket for January’s Community Day Special Research if you purchase a Kanto Tour ticket by the end of today, January 13.
January’s Community Day takes place this Saturday, January 16. The featured Pokemon this month is Machop, and if you can evolve it all the way into Machamp up to two hours after the event ends, it’ll learn the Dark-type attack Payback. A Sinnoh Celebration event is also underway right now, and it features the Gen 4 Legendary Heatran.
