As February is about one week away, it’s the ideal time for Niantic to tease us with details about the Pokemon Go Community Day of February 2019. And indeed, Niantic announced new information on the next event in Pokemon Go which would take place Saturday, February 16th.
“Get out and play together in your local community parks on Pokemon Go Community Day. For just a few hours each month, you can encounter a special Pokemon in the wild. During these hours, there’s a chance to learn a previously unavailable move for that Pokemon or its Evolution, as well as earn some Community Day bonuses. Celebrate what it means to be a part of the Pokemon GO community and make new friends along the way,” explained Niantic the concept of Pokemon Go Community Day.
The Pokemon Go Community Day of February 2019 would feature Swinub Pokemon. It would appear more frequently in the wild, and players can grab a Shiny Swinub during the event, too.

Any Swinub will evolve Mamoswine, its final form, within hours after the event ends. It would also learn a special move, but Niantic did not mention which one would that be. Mamoswine was one of the evolved forms released in Pokemon Go along with the fourth-generation titles. To develop a Swinub into Mamoswine you’d need the Sinnoh Stone, a newly introduced evolutionary item in Pokemon Go.
You can gain a Sinnoh Stone via Trainer Battles, during Pokemon Go Community Day events when coaches have the chance to get up to five Sinnoh Stones by fighting other players.
Pokemon Go Community Day of February 2019 would take place on February 16th between 2 PM and 5 PM ET (10 AM – 1 PM UTC for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa). It would feature Swinub and its Shiny version, as well.
