Pokemon Go's February 2021 Community Day Features Roselia, More Details Announced
Next month's Community Day event is set for February 7 and stars the Grass/Poison Pokemon Roselia.
Pokemon Go's January Community Day may have only recently ended, but Niantic has already shared details on next month's event. February's Community Day will take place on Sunday, February 7, and the featured Pokemon next month will be the Grass/Poison type Roselia.
Throughout February's Community Day, Roselia will appear in the wild much more frequently than normal, while its pre-evolved form, Budew, will hatch from 2 km eggs. You'll also have a chance to encounter Shiny Roselia in the game, and there will be Timed Research tasks to complete. These will reward you with Sinnoh Stones, which you'll need to evolve Roselia into Roserade.

If you do manage to evolve Roselia during the event, your Roserade will know two special moves: the Fast Attack Bullet Seed and the Charged Attack Weather Ball. The latter's typing typically varies, but Roserade's Weather Ball will deal Fire-type damage. You'll have up to two hours after the Community Day ends to evolve Roselia and learn the special Community Day moves.
Finally, Niantic will offer two in-game bonuses during February's Community Day. Any eggs you place in an Incubator during the event will hatch at a quarter of their normal distance, and any Incense that you use will remain active for three hours. The studio will also sell a special Community Day box in Pokemon Go's in-game shop. The box will cost 1,280 PokeCoins and includes the following:
- 1 Elite Fast TM
- 4 Incense
- 4 Super Incubators
- 30 Ultra Balls
February's Community Day runs from 11 AM to 5 PM local time. You can read more about the event on the official Pokemon Go website. As usual, Niantic will also offer a paid Special Research story during the Community Day. A ticket for that costs $1 USD, but thanks to an early purchase bonus, you can get a ticket for free if you purchase a Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto ticket by February 3.
In the meantime, Pokemon Go is holding a Hoenn Celebration from January 19-26. As part of the event, Kyogre and Groudon will return to five-star Raids, and you'll be able to catch many other Gen 3 Pokemon in the wild. A Johto Celebration is set to follow from January 26-31.
