For January, Pokémon Go will put Spheal, the Clap Pokémon, in the spotlight. To get all the information you need to know about the event ahead of time, check out everything below!

Spheal Community Day


No matter where you are, the event lasts from 11am to 5pm local time on Jan. 16, 2021. This means that people living on the Eastern part of the world will begin the event several hours sooner than people living on the Western side. However, it also means the event ends sooner for them!
