Community Day is a good way for Pokémon GO trainers to get their hands on a particular Pokémon, as well as its shiny version.

The next Community Day has dutifully been revealed, and will feature the little Generation III seal Pokémon, Spheal. 

  • Date: Sunday, January 16, 2022 - 11:00-17:00 local time.

Spheal evolves into Sealeo for 25 Candy, then into Walrein for a further 100 Candy.
