Pokemon Go February Community Day | Announcement expected soon!

Pokemon Go February Community Day | Announcement expected soon!

It has been over a week since the Pokemon Go Community Day for January. As a result we can expect an announcement for the Pokemon Go February Community Day very soon.


February Community Day

Usually Niantic announce each month's Pokemon Go Community Day within a week of the previous one. We had to wait a little longer for the January announcement so it's possible the longer wait is intentional.

The date of the February Community Day is purely speculation at this point. Last year's took place on February 24 and was headlined by Dratini. Given last month's Community Day occurred on January 12, it is perhaps more realistic to expect a February 9 date.


Which Pokemon Will Headline February?

The real question Pokemon fans have before a Community Day is announced, is which Pokemon will be the headliner.

Up until now, starter Pokemon have headlined in odd months. This might be suggestive that a non-starter Pokemon will be featured in February.

With the hype continuing around the full introduction of gen 4 in Pokemon Go, many trainers are wondering whether the generation 4 starter Pokemon will make an appearance. However, with the gen 3 starter Pokemon yet to headline, it seems too early, and illogical, for Niantic to jump straight to gen 4.

With Totodile, one of the gen 2 starter Pokemon headlining January, February looks like it will alternate back to a Pokemon that hatches from a 10km egg.

Pokemon Valentine's Day

One Reddit user has theorised that Valentine's Day will play a prominent part in Niantic's decision making. Consequently, Ralts would be the front runner to make the appearance.

Furthermore, Ralts also hatches from a 10km egg.

Other Contenders

Along with Ralts, Bagon and Trapinch are two other Pokemon that have shiny variants and haven't featured in a Community Day yet.

Another Reddit user, who has done some extensive analysis into Pokemon Go Community Day trends, believes Bagon will be selected.
