It looks like it's going to be another exciting Community Day in Pokémon GO. For February, the focus is on the Cottonweed Pokémon Hoppip. That means trainers can expect to see it more frequently in the wild and those lucky enough could even encounter the Shiny version. The Community Day is on February 12 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., local time.

Those able to evolve Skiploom, which is Hoppip’s Evolution, during the event can get a Jumpluff that knows the Charged Attack Acrobatics.

What else can players expect from the upcoming Community Day? There are the event bonuses which include:

  • 3× Catch Stardust.
  • Incense activated during the event lasts for three hours.
  • Lure Modules activated during the event last for three hours.
  • Get up to three free Raid Passes from Gyms during the event and up to two hours after the event.
  • Chance for Skiploom to appear in Parks alongside Hoppip.
  • Bonus Hoppip XL Candy from Skiploom caught in Parks.
  • Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise.

Then there are these:

  • Event Bundles
    • Trainers can get the special one-time-purchase Community Day Box available for 1,280 PokéCoins. It features:
      • 50 Ultra Balls
      • Two Super Incubators
      • Six Star Pieces
      • Elite Fast TM
    • A bundle that contains 30 Ultra Balls available in the shop at no cost. Don't forget to pick it up during the Community Day.
  • Stickers
    • Enjoy event-themed stickers by:
      • Spinning PokéStops

      • Buying them from the in-game shop.

The Community Day is also offering a Special Research Story titled “A Hop, Skip, and Jump Away.” This one can be accessed by buying a non-refundable ticket priced at $1.

Power Plant Event

Before Community Day arrives, trainers can enjoy the Power Plant Event. This one started January 19 and runs until February 1. This event marks the debut of Helioptile and Heliolisk in the game. To get Heliolisk, trainers need to evolve Helioptile by using 50 Helioptile Candy and a Sun Stone.

For this event, trainers can expect to see Team GO Rocket appearing more frequently at PokéStops and in balloons. Trainers can also use a Charged TM to help a Shadow Pokémon forget the Charged Attack Frustration. Read more about this event here.
