Pokemon GOOn the first Community Day of the New Year, a fighting-type Pokemon, Machop, will be introduced.
On January 16, 2021, Machop spawns in large numbers. At the time of writing this Pokemon GO The Community Day page hasn’t updated over time, but we can assume that the event will take place from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm local time, based on the previous Community Day.
This is a good opportunity to add powerful Pokemon to your team, as the Machop evolution line is very useful in both PvP and raids. If you evolve into Machamp during the event, you will learn Payback. This is not suitable for raids, but it is a viable move for PvP.
As always, featured Pokemon are much more likely to be shiny during the event. Stardust obtained by catching Pokemon will also be tripled.
Machop, formerly an option for Community Day player voting, lost to Rhyhorn. Dratini and Vulpix were also voting options, but the implementation of Machop Community Day could mean that Dratini and Vulpix could get another shot in the spotlight.
Earlier this month, Niantic announced that players who purchased tickets for the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event by January 13th will have free access to a special research storyline for Community Day in January and February. ..
