We’re just a few days into February and Niantic has now announced its slate of events for this month in Pokémon Go. February will unsurprisingly see a Valentine’s Day celebration but the in-game story will also expand as we enter into the final month of Season 9: Mythical Wishes, which concludes on March 1st.

February Raids

This month’s five-star raids will feature some powerful Pokemon. Each of them will be available for a week, beginning with Registeel, Tapu Lele, Regirock, and finally, Rayquaza, who will be part of the Primal Rumblings event taking place later in the month.

Speaking of the Primal Rumblings event, Mega Latios and Mega Latias will dominate the mega raids at the same time. Other Pokémon featuring in Mega Raids include Mega Gengar, Mega Gardevoir, and Mega Pidgeot.

Community Day

February’s Community Day will be helmed by the Soundwave Pokémon, Noibat. It takes place on February 5th, between 2:00 and 5:00 pm local time.
