The players have spoken

Julia Lee (she/her) is a guides producer, writing guides for games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Genshin Impact. She helped launch the Rift Herald in 2016.

After a player vote, the star of the next Pokémon Go Community Day has been chosen: Rhyhorn.

The Community Day will be on Feb. 22. For players in the northern hemisphere, it’ll take place from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in your local time zone. For players in the southern hemisphere, it’ll take place from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. in your local time zone.

The Community Day will feature Rhyhorn spawning at an increased rate, with a high chance for it to appear Shiny. Catch Stardust will also be tripled throughout the duration of the event.

When evolved during the event period and up to two hours later, Rhyperior will learn Rock Wrecker, which makes it a fairly solid raiding Pokémon, but it still falls behind Rampardos in DPS. Rhyperior does need a Sinnoh Stone in order to evolve, and there is no word on any extra Sinnoh Stones being given out during the event.

Rhyhorn was picked by players when pit against Machop, Dratini, and Vulpix. Vulpix and Rhyhorn were both set to have their Shiny forms added to the game for the first time, with Dratini and Machop’s Shiny forms added long ago.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
