Pokémon Go’s January 2022 Community Day will feature Spheal the Clap Pokémon
| Pokemon GO

Pokémon Go’s December Community Day was an absolute blast. With Pokémon showing up from the past two years in the wild, in raids, and in eggs, players who missed capturing these cool pocket monsters finally had the chance to do so once again. And now, the cycle restarts with a new Pokémon for the New Year. In January 2022, Spheal will feature!

Mark January 16th on your calendars because the Clap Pokémon – Spheal is coming! Between 11:00 am and 5:00 pm, Spheal will appear more frequently in the wild and with some luck on your side, you may find a shiny one as well. Trainers also have lots of bonuses to enjoy throughout the day. There will be 3x Catch XP for successfully catching Spheal and any Incense and Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours.

Evolving Spheal and Sealeo into Walrein during, or up to two hours after the event, will allow the Pokémon to learn two exclusive moves - Charged Attack Icicle Spear and Fast Attack Powder Snow. Icicle Spear is a new move releasing next year for Walrein. It is a low-energy Charged Attack that deals 60 damage to opponents.
