Vote for Vulpix, Machop, Rhyhorn, or Dratini for Pokémon GO’s February Community Day

You can help choose which Pokémon will be the star of the next Community Day during a special voting day event.

February's Pokémon GO Community Day is going to be quite different from what Trainers are used to. The Pokémon GO community will help choose which Pokémon will be the star of the day! The candidates to be featured in February's Community Day are Vulpix, Machop, Rhyhorn, and Dratini. Players can take part in a voting day that will determine the winner.

Voting day will be on Saturday, February 1, 2020, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. in your local time zone. During this time, there will be Field Research tasks that will count as votes for the Pokémon associated with each particular task when completed. The winner will be announced on Monday, February 3, 2020, and the February Community Day will occur on Saturday, February 22, 2020.

Meet the Candidates

Whichever Pokémon wins will be able to learn a special Community Day attack once it is raised to its final evolved form during the hours of Community Day or up to two hours after the event.

Vulpix or Alolan Vulpix, when evolved into Ninetales or Alolan Ninetales, will learn the Charged Attack Weather Ball. Ninetales will learn Fire-type Weather Ball, while Alolan Ninetales will learn Ice-type Weather Ball—attacks that are currently exclusive to Castform. If Vulpix wins, you will also have the chance to encounter a Shiny Vulpix (as originally discovered in the Kanto region) for the first time in Pokémon GO.

Machop, once evolved into Machamp, will learn the Dark-type Charged Attack Payback.

Evolve Rhyhorn into Rhyperior, and it will learn the Rock-type Charged Attack Rock Wrecker. Rhyhorn's victory would also present the opportunity to encounter a Shiny Rhyhorn for the first time in Pokémon GO.

Finally, Dratini, after it is evolved into Dragonite, will learn the Fighting-type Charged Attack Superpower.

How to Cast Your Votes

In order to ensure fairness, all candidates' Field Research tasks will have the same objective to complete in order to cast a vote for the February 2020 Community Day Pokémon. This Field Research objective will be to catch 20 Pokémon, and the task will reward 200 Stardust. Votes will be counted via the total number of voting-day Field Research tasks completed globally within the allotted time.

Every PokéStop during the event hours on February 1 will have a voting-related research task. If the PokéStop you spin does not have a task for the Pokémon you want to vote for, please spin a different PokéStop. There will be an even distribution of these research tasks among PokéStops, and areas that have fewer PokéStops will be accounted for as well.

One research task completed casts one vote for the Pokémon listed on the completed task. You may complete more than one voting research task, and each one will count as a vote for whichever Pokémon is listed on each task. Be sure to complete as much research as you can to vote for the Pokémon you want featured for Community Day.

In addition to the winning Pokémon, February Community Day will also feature a bonus of 3× Catch Stardust. Check back soon to learn which Pokémon won the vote and for more specifics on February's Community Day. Until then, get out there and make your voice heard as you vote for the first-ever community-chosen Community Day Pokémon!
