Article by Brian Tien

January's dual-Community Days are over, so now it's time to look into February. And it seems that we don't have to look very far, as Niantic has given us confirmation that the next focus will be on the Generation 2/Johto Pokemon, Hoppip. We've got a brand new Flying Type move hitting the game just for Hoppip's evolved form, Jumpluff, and the ever-popular 3x Catch Stardust bonus  to look forward to as well!
