As we draw ever closer to the start of yet another new year, Pokémon GO is still running along and keeping things fresh. A new Raid Boss appeared in the game just this week, and January's Community Day details have also been confirmed.
Let's kick things off with the Community Day, for which Johto starter Pokémon Totodile is set to be the star. Following the recent trend of having a starter Pokémon appear every other month, this event should hopefully give players the chance to complete their collection of Totodile's evolution chain, in both regular and shiny forms.
Totodile's Community Day will take place on 12th January 2019 from 10am - 1pm GMT. As always, expect to find Totodile all over the place during those hours and get the opportunity to learn a previously unavailable move for either it, or its evolutions.
Elsewhere, the Fire and Steel-type Legendary Pokémon Heatran has now appeared in Raid Battles, replacing previous star Cresselia (and signalling the end of Lugia and Ho-Oh's recent re-appearance). Heatran will be available to battle and catch from now until 15th January, so make sure to get a strong team of Water, Fighting, and Ground-type Pokémon at the ready.
Have you been braving the winter weather to catch 'em all? Let us know if you've been enjoying the game recently in the comments below.
Already caught a Heatran yesterday! Pretty decent but not the best. Fire / Steel does come with more negatives than positives. Little overwhelmed by the fact I could construct a well-defined mapping between my Sinnoh legendaries (including multiplicity) and the number of different non-legendary Sinnoh Pokemon I have.
We already basically had a Totodile day that spanned several weeks way back during the Water Festival event. So I’ll be picking up a shiny here and then peacing out.
Well, the pattern if spacing out fun community days with boring ones continues.. hope the babies appreciate the pain we're put through!
Not managed to raid a Heatran yet, just had my best PoGo friend post me a pick of her 100%. Can't wait! It's not the best, but it's NOT Cresellia or Lugia/Ho-oh for the 5th time.
@Benjamin That's what I was thinking. I will go for a shiny, maybe 2 and call it. Unless we end up with double stardust, as I am always low on that.
