The January 2022 Pokemon Go Community Day has been unveiled, and a cold wintry month will fittingly highlight an Ice-type Pokemon.
Spheal–the Clap Pokemon that debuted in the Hoenn region from Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire–will be the featured Pokemon for the next Pokemon Go Community Day, currently scheduled for January 16 from 11 AM to 5 PM local time. As with previous Community Days, the featured Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild and see an increased chance of a shiny version.
January just got a lot cooler. ❄️😎
Trainers, we’re excited to announce that Spheal will be featured during January #PokemonGOCommunityDay!

Players who evolve Sealeo–Spheal’s first evolution–to Walrein during the designated event time will see the new Pokemon learn a new Charged move making its Pokemon Go debut, Icicle Spear. The Walrein will also know the Fast move Powder Snow.
