Most fans will be excited for the Community Day Classic taking place this week.

Here’s everything coming to Pokémon Go from January 16, 2023 to January 22, 2023.

Seedot is in the spotlight

This week’s Spotlight Hour in Pokémon Go takes place on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, from 6 p.m local time.

Spotlight Hour will feature Seedot, a third-generation weed species that evolves into Shiftry.

While not the most exciting Pokemon, Seedot will be available more frequently during this hour and its Shiny rate will be increased.

Also, there is x2 XP for each Pokemon caught during this hour, including non-Acorn ones.

Regice handles raids

This week’s Raid Hour takes place on Wednesday 18 January 2023from 6 p.m local time.

Regice takes over raids from the three Legendaries of Black and White Box Art.

It can also be glossy, but the glossy appearance is almost identical to Regice’s regular shade.

It spawns as a five-star raid in every gym during that hour, and spawns in regular five-star raids throughout the week.

Mega Lopunny will also be taking over Mega Raids this week.

Great League takes over the Go Battle League

The Go Battle League will change Thursday, January 19, 2023, at 8 p.m UK time.

The Great League returns and is accompanied by another version of the Great League in the Weather Cup: Great League Edition.

Pokemon must have 1.5,000 CP or less and be Rock, Ice, Fire, or Water-type to participate.

The Lunar New Year Event begins

The Twinkling Fantasy event takes place from Thursday, January 19, 2023 at 10 a.m until Monday 23 January at 10pm local time.

2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, so Bunnery and Bunnelby will appear more frequently during the Lunar New Year event.

Red Pokémon are also more common, including Ponyta, Slugma, and Fennekin, and, rarely, Flareon and Darumaka.

There will be additional research tasks, and Darumaka will appear in those, as well as in eggs and one-star raids.

Community Day Classic returns

The Community Day Classic takes place on Saturday January 21, 2023 from 14 o’clock to 17 o’clock local time.

The goal is Larvitar, a second generation Pokémon that can evolve into the powerful Tyranitar.

It will take a lot of Larvitar to evolve into Tyranitar, but if you make it before then 19 o’clock, it will know the unique Move Smack Down.

There are also increased chances of a Shiny spawning that day.
