Pokemon Go Community Day January 2022 Is All About Spheal
The seal Pokemon not named Seel gets the spotlight for 2022's first Community Day.
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.
