Developer Niantic has confirmed Pokemon Go fans have been given the opportunity to vote for the February 2020 Community Day.
The event will take place on February 22, 2020, but before then, players are expected to vote for their favourite featured Pokemon.
Players are expected to complete Research Tasks on the potential candidates listed below on February 1st. To complete one task, players must collect 20 Pokemon which will equate to one vote. The following Pokemon can be voted for:
- Vulpix: Alolan Vulpix will be appearing in Field Research and Raid Battles. Evolve Vulpix or Alolan Vulpix into Ninetales or Alolan Ninetales for the Charged Attack Weather Ball. Ninetales will learn Fire-type Weather Ball, and Alolan Ninetales will learn Ice-type Weather Ball—attacks previously exclusive to Castform. Shiny Vulpix as originally discovered in the Kanto region will become available for the first time.
- Machop: Evolve Machop into Machamp for the exclusive attack Payback. This Dark-type Charged Attack will give Machamp good coverage to deal with Psychic- and Ghost-type Pokemon that might otherwise give it trouble.
- Rhyhorn: Evolve Rhyhorn into Rhyperior for the exclusive attack Rock Wrecker. Known to be Rhyperior’s signature move, this Rock-type Charged Attack will be a powerful addition to Rhyperior’s repertoire. Shiny Rhyhorn will also become available to encounter for the first time.
- Dratini: Evolve Dratini into Dragonite for the Charged Attack Superpower. This powerful Fighting-type attack is a recent addition and could be a strategic option for Dragonite. For example, it could help Dragonite against Ice- and Rock-type Pokemon that would normally have an advantage over it. Superpower could also help Dragonite deal with Steel-type Pokemon that are weak to Fighting-type attacks.
Pokemon Go is available on iOS and Android devices.
