by Noah Nelson


Pokemon Go is featuring yet another Community Day, and this time it is centered on Hoppip. Though Hoppip will have some exciting things available during this time, there is a lot to look forward to even if you aren’t interested in the Pokemon itself. You won’t want to miss this event!

Pokemon Go Hoppip Community Day

The Hoppip Community Day in Pokemon Go will take place on Saturday, February 12, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time. Of course, during this time, Hoppip will appear more frequently in the wild.

Can Hoppip Be Shiny?

Hoppip in Pokemon Go is shiny! This Community Day is the best time to go out and get yourself a Shiny Hoppip. If you’re lucky, it will appear in the wild. (P.S. – The shiny version looks really cool!).

Hoppip Community Day Special Research Story

During these Community Days that Pokemon Go puts on, a Special Research Story tied to the highlighted Pokemon is available. For US$1.00, you’ll be able to experience the “A Hop, Skip, and Jump Away!” Special Research Story. It will be a special experience that can only ever be enjoyed once, so take advantage of it!
