When is the January 2023 Pokemon GO Community Day?

The January 2023 Chespin community day event in Pokemon GO is scheduled to happen on January 7, 2023 from 2PM to 5PM local time. You'll also have some time afterwards to evolve your Pokemon and gain any benefits that you'd have in the event.

What is the spotlight Pokemon in the Pokemon GO Community Day January 2023?

In this upcoming community event, the spotlight Pokemon is Chespin. This gives us some more chances to pick up the Generation VI starter. During this time, Chespin will spawn a lot more in the world. We'll also be able to take on Quilladin raids to help jumpstart the evolution train

What is the Chespin Community Day move?

For those who evolve Chespin into Chesnaught, or catch a Chesnaught during the event will have a special community day move. This move is Frenzy Plant, which is a 100 power charge move, that previously was only known by Smeargle.

What is the Chespin hundo CP?

If you're on the hunt for the hundo CP Chespin, then you're going to want to look out for a 1239 CP Chespin that isn't weather boosted.

Chesnaught moves - What's the best fast and charged move?

Chesnaught has a few different moves that it can have when you evolve into it. There's three fast moves and a total of five different charge moves. Those are as follows:

  • Fast Moves
    • Low Kick
    • Smack Down
    • Vine Whip
  • Charge Moves
    • Gyro Ball
    • Energy Ball
    • Superpower
    • Solar Beam
    • Frenzy Plant (Community Day)

Chesnaught does have some solid moves in it's arsenal. For its Fast Moves, each of these are solid options, with Smack Down being the strongest, but slowest of the bunch. For it's Charge Moves, Superpower, is great as it lowers stats. Solar Beam hits like a truck, but takes a while to charge up, so Frenzy Plant is a nice middle ground Charge Move to have.

Shiny Chespin odds - Can Chespin be shiny?

For the shiny hunters out there, Chespin can definitely be found as a shiny, but you'll see boosted odds during community day.
