When Pokémon Go launched in 2016, no creature was more elusive and coveted than Dragonite, the ultimate evolved form of Dratini. While many hardcore players have the powerful dragon Pokémon, casual PoGoers likely haven’t found or hatched enough Dratinis to evolve into the third phase. That could very well change this weekend, as Pokémon Go celebrates its second monthly Community Day by unleashing the dragon.
During the three-hour window, Dratini will spawn much more frequently throughout the world. In addition, if you evolve a Dratini up to Dragonite during the Community Day event, that Dragonite will know an exclusive move called Draco Meteor. Finally, lures will last three hours, and catching Pokémon will yield three times the stardust. There’s no word on if Niantic will use this opportunity to introduce shiny variations of Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite, but it isn’t outside the realm of possibility and could potentially be the “big get” of the mini-event.
Niantic’s first Pokémon Go Community Day took place on January 20 and featured Pikachu. Every Pikachu caught during the given window had the exclusive ability to use the move Surf.
The Dratini-focused Pokémon Go Community Day takes place on Saturday, February 24 between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Central time.
