The monthly event returns this Saturday, February 22.
February’s been a busy month for Pokemon Move, but there are still a couple of events lined up for the game prior to the month comes to a conclusion. On top of the forthcoming Pokemon Day occasion, there is February’s Community Day, which takes place that Saturday, February 22.
Community Days typically only operate for 3 hours, however, the particulars of each occasion — like what Pokemon you are more likely to discover –vary month by month. To assist you to get ready for this month’s event, we’ve rounded up everything you need to learn about February’s Community Day below.
Every Community Day event revolves around one “featured” Pokemon, which will look more frequently throughout the event. While Niantic generally chooses the featured Pokemon each month, this time that the programmer gave gamers the chance to vote on February’s featured Pokemon, and the winner was Rhyhorn.
Throughout this month’s Community Day, you will be more inclined to find Rhyhorn from the wild and in Raid Battles. On top of that, you will have your first opportunity to encounter a Shiny Rhyhorn during the event. These will appear in the wild rarely, but you should be able to get some with a little persistence.
What Is February’s Community Day Move?
Along with increased Pokemon spawns, each Community Day offers the chance to snag an event-exclusive move. If you’re able to evolve the featured Pokemon to its final form by the close of the occasion, it’ll automatically know an attack that it otherwise couldn’t learn in Pokemon Go.
The month’s Community Day move is Rock Wrecker, a highly effective Rock-type Charged attack. If you’re able to evolve Rhydon–Rhyhorn’s evolved type –to Rhyperior up to 2 hours after the Community Day ends, it is going to know Rock Wrecker among its strikes. This applies to some Rhydon you evolve throughout the specified time period, even if you caught them prior to the Community Day.
The Way to Get Sinnoh Stones
While you’re able to evolve Rhyhorn to Rhydon simply be feeding it, Rhyhorn Candy, you’ll need a special item to evolve Rhydon into Rhyperior: a Sinnoh Stone. These are generally difficult to come by in Pokemon Move, but you’ll have a chance to get your hands on some of them during that month’s Community Day. Through the whole day (from 12 AM to 11:59 PM local time), you’re going to have the ability to make two Sinnoh Stones for every set of Go Battle League conflicts you complete, irrespective of the outcome of the matches.
Just as last month, February’s Community Day will occur at various times depending on where you live. From the Northern Hemisphere, the event will run from 11 AM to 2 PM local time; in the Southern Hemisphere, Community Day occurs from 3 PM to 6 PM local time.
What Other Bonuses Are Available?
Along with increased Rhyhorn spawns, another bonus will be available during February’s Community Day. Through the event, you are going to earn three times the normal quantity of Stardust for shooting Pokemon. This applies to any pocket creature that you catch throughout February’s Community Day, not simply Rhyhorn.
