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

The 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.

That exclusive move remains unknown at this point, but the Penguin Pokémon can be evolved into Prinplup and then Empoleon, for those that still need to complete their Pokédex. As with previous Community Days, Shiny Piplup are likely to spawn.

The Community Day will take place on 19th January 2020 between 11am – 2pm in the Northern Hemisphere, or 3pm – 6pm for those in the Southern Hemisphere.

Niantic has confirmed that, during the event hours, players can hatch Eggs in a quarter of their normal distance and Lures will last for three hours.
