With the Machop Community Day taking place this week, Niantic has now announced the Pokemon that will be featured in February. Taking place on Sunday 7th from 11 am to 5 pm local time, the next Community Day will focus on Roselia.

Of course, during this time you'll be able to run into the Thorn Pokemon more frequently in the wild. There will also be a chance that you'll find a Shiny version too, so make sure to look out for a variant with a purple and black roses instead of the usual red and blue. A few encounters with Roselia can also be triggered by taking a few Snapshots.

If you evolve a Roselia during the event or up to two hours afterwards, you'll end up with a Roserade that knows the Charged Attack Weather Ball and the Fast Attack Bullet Seed. To help you with evolving your Roserade there will be event-exclusive Timed Research that will yield Sinnoh Stones as a reward.

As always, there will be a Roselia Community Day–exclusive Special Research story called Stop and Smell the Roselia. This will set you back $1 or it will be completely free if you opted to pre-purchase a Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto ticket prior to February 3rd.

If you're stocked up on PokeCoins or don't mind spending some cash for some more, there will be a Roselia Community Day Box for 1280. It will contain an Elite Fast TM, four Incense, four Super Incubators, and 30 Ultra Balls.

During the event, a couple of bonuses will also be active. Eggs popped into an incubator will hatch at ¼ the distance whilst Incense activated will last for three hours. Appropriately, during the Community Day, Budew will be hatching from 2km Eggs.

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