Niantic, the creators of the popular mobile game Pokémon GO, recently sought to celebrate the start of the new year by announcing the first event of Community Day 2022. Spheal, an Ice and Water-type Pokémon from the franchise’s 3rd generation, will appear in this first event. Below, we’ve outlined all of the features available in this Niantic-hosted event.

Once again, it appears that the event will be the same in 2022, with a 6H duration, allowing Niantic to offer all gamers enough opportunity to participate in the event.
