Pokemon Go's first Community Day of the year is taking place this Saturday, 16th January and will run between 11 am and 5 pm local time. The Pokemon being featured will be the Superpower Pokemon, Machop.

As is always the case with a Community Day event, it will see Machop appearing more frequently in the wild. There will also be a chance that you'll run into a Shiny version of the Superpower Pokemon, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a green variant and that telltale shimmer. Remember to take a few snapshots during the event for a few Machop encounters too.

The special move that can be learned during this event is Payback. Players will be able to get this for a Machamp by evolving a Machoke during the event hours or up to two hours after it has concluded.

You'll also be able to spend $1 on the Community Day exclusive Special Research Story that's called Straight to the Top, Machop! This will net you several encounters with Machop that have a higher IV floor alongside several other items.

If you're quite content to spend even more money, or PokeCoins if you've saved up enough, there will be a special one-time purchase Machop Community Day Box. For the price of 1280 PokeCoins, you'll net yourself an Elite Charged TM, four Incense, four Star Pieces, and 30 Ultra Balls.

Finally, there will be a few bonuses available during the hours of the Community Day event. You'll get three times the normal amount of Catch Stardust whilst Incense activated during the event will last for three hours.

Pokemon Go is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
