Trainers, Rhyhorn has been selected as February Community Day Pokémon! Niantic has shared that during Community Day, you can evolve Rhyhorn into Rhyperior for the exclusive attack Rock Wrecker. And if you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Rhyhorn!
Rhyhorn Community Day will take place on Saturday, February 22, 2020. The featured bonus will be 3× Catch Stardust. Community Day for Trainers in the northern hemisphere will run from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time, while in the southern hemisphere, it will run from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time.
From Saturday, February 22, at 12 a.m. to Saturday, February 22, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. local time, you’ll be able to earn two Sinnoh Stones per set of regular or premium track #GOBattle League battles completed, regardless of whether you win or lose!
With the limit of five sets of GO Battle League battles each day—or 25 battles in the GO Battle League total—Trainers have the opportunity to obtain up to 10 Sinnoh Stones!
The new shiny Pokémon are listed below:
Rock Wrecker is a damage-dealing Rock-type move introduced in Generation IV. Prior to Generation V, it was the signature move of Rhyperior.
Rock Wrecker stats are not yet known at this moment. We will update this article once the stats become available. Rhyperior’s current best Rock moveset is Smack Down + Stone Edge, which ranks Rhyperior as the 4th best Rock attacker.
We’ll see how much (and if) Rock Wrecker will improve Rhyperior’s performance as a Rock attacker. It is also possible Rock Wrecker could have a PvP specific activation mechanic, but no word from Niantic on that yet.
