Niantic never ceases to amaze gamers Pokémon GO and 2022 has started with everything. The company has not only given clues about the next creatures that will debut in the title, but today it just revealed a new additional event that left many fans happy.
A few days ago, before the end of 2021, Niantic revealed that mid-January would be the Community Day of the month and that it would be starring the Applause Pokémon. However, this Pokémon will be joined by another, because for the first time Niantic will carry out another similar event, called Classic Community Day.
This is interesting, as the only times there are 2 Community Days per month is in December; the first dedicated to the protagonists of this type of event in the first half of the year and the second for the rest. Other than that, it had never happened that in the same month there were 2 Community Days.

What is the classic Community Day of Pokémon GO?
As the name might suggest, the classic Community Day will bring back one of the classic creatures of the franchise, Bulbasaur, who will appear most frequently in the wild during the event, which will take place on Saturday, January 22. From 2022 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM, that’s right, in this special edition the duration will be cut in half.
As in normal Community Days, during this event the main Pokémon will also appear in its shiny or variocolor form more frequently and, if you evolve an Ivysaur into Venusaur during the event or up to 2 hours later, the latter will know the powerful attack Charged Ferocious Plant, dealing 100 points of damage in both Raids and Trainer Battles.
In case you missed it: various artists celebrated the 5th anniversary of Pokémon GO with great illustrations.
It is not known if Niantic plans to do more editions of this special Community Day, monthly and focused on old Community Days, or if it will only be a one-time occasion in January 2022. Ninatic did not explain why it will hold this event. In addition, despite the fact that during the Legacy Season it will be true to “the roots of Community Day.”
Likewise, the Incenses and the Bait Modules will last 3 hours and the bonus of this special edition will be triple the Experience Points (XP) per catch. In the Shop, a special Community Day Pack will be sold in exchange for 1280 Pokécoins that will include 50 Ultra Balls, 5 Lucky Eggs, 5 Star Chunks and 1 Elite Charged Attack TM, there will also be a special investigation story of the event that will be worth $ 1 USD and will offer various rewards. Finally, you should know that in the Store there will also be a free package with 30 Ultra Balls, which you can claim during the event.
