Pokemon GO’s January Community Day is just about two weeks away, which means players have Totodile and its evolutions on the brain. The weekend of January 12 Pokemon GO players will have three hours to catch as many of the Gen 2 creature as possible and expand their collection with shiny spawns, evolutions, and hopefully a few more surprises.
The basic idea of Community Day is pretty simple: Go out and catch a ton of pokemon for three hours, but this time around things are different. For players who need a little more direction than that, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide full of all the intel you need for the big day.
Totodile – Gen 2 Water-type starter
Saturday, January 12

Europe, Middle East, Africa, India: 10am to 1pm UK (BST), 11am to 2pm CET

Make sure to evolve during the active time window (within an hour of the event ending) if you want to secure it.
1/4 Egg Hatch Distance
3 Hour Lures
Limited Time Field Research
Recent updates to the game’s code suggest that this Community Day, like last month’s, will temporarily offer special Field Research tasks that put an emphasis on the featured Pokemon. Be sure to claim your rewards and clear out a space for these quests if you want to see them.
Niantic usually doesn’t confirm the shiny chance until after the event has started, but keep an eye out for shiny Totodile while hunting. They’ve been a part of every other Community Day event, so we fully expect to see them on Saturday the 12th.
That’s everything we know at this point! Check back for updates closer to the event. Until then, good luck out there, trainers!
