Niantic has announced when the next Pokémon GO Community Day will take place, and that Mareep will be the featured Pokémon.

These Community Days are monthly events that feature a special Pokémon that will appear frequently around the world for a few short hours. And, if caught during the event, the Pokémon will know an exclusive move.

The Electric-type Wool Pokémon, which for those looking to complete their Pokédex evolves into Flaaffy and then Ampharos, will have an exclusive move that the developer is still to reveal.

The Community Day, which will take place on Saturday 15th April, will see Lures last for three hours, and Egg hatch distances reduced to a quarter compared to how long they normally take to hatch.

The event hours in each region, are:

The Asia-Pacific region: 12pm – 3pm JST
Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: 10am – 1pm UTC
The Americas and Greenland: 11am – 2pm PST
