Now that both January 2022’s Community Days have concluded, Niantic is looking forward to the next month’s gathering! While we’ve known that February 2022’s Community Day would be taking place on Saturday, February 12th, since December of last year, we didn’t know which Pokémon would be featured. Thanks to the official Pokémon GO blog today, we have an answer to that question – it’s Hoppip!



The cottonweed Pokémon from the Johto region will be appearing everywhere right before Valentine’s Day. Following the Community Day format, Hoppip’s evolved form Jumpluff can learn a special Community Day move (this time it’s Acrobatics), Shiny rates for Hoppip will be boosted, photobomb appearances with a special filter will be active, and more.

Niantic is throwing some special bonuses in for this particular event though! Trainers who play in a Park area may encounter Hoppip’s first evolved form, Skiploom, and each bonus Hoppip XL Candy when caught. Additional free Raid Passes are also being distributed at Gyms, upping the daily max to three.

Whether you play from home or safely outside, make sure that you don’t miss February 2022’s Community Day starring Hoppip on Saturday, February 12th, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. your local time.
