Ahead of the Machop Community Day on Jan. 16, Niantic revealed today that Roselia will be featured in Pokémon Go February Community Day.
The Grass/Poison type will be appearing more frequently on Feb. 7 and will gain two special moves if evolved before the end of the event.
Roselia evolves into a strong Grass-type, Roserade, that has a lot of competitive potential already. With this Community Day, if you manage to evolve Roselia, your reward will be a Roserade that knows Bullet Seed and the Fire-type variation of Weather Ball.
Shiny Roselia will be popping up for lucky players during the event, Budew will hatch from 2km Eggs, and if you take a snapshot during the event you might get a special surprise. Event-exclusive Timed Research will be available throughout the day and will reward players with Sinnoh Stones to help evolve Roselia.
A Community Day ticket will also be available in the in-game shop for $1 that will unlock a Special Research story titled “Stop and Smell the Roselia.” But players who purchase the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto ticket before Feb. 3 will get the Roselia event Special Research for free.
During the event, players will get 25-percent Hatch Distance for Eggs placed in Incubators and Incense will last for three hours instead of the usual one-hour duration.
