And the Winner Is…

Trainers around the world headed to the Research Tasks to cast their votes for their favorite candidate for February 2020’s Community Day featured Pokémon! Who was the Winner?

Shiny Vulpix

Was it Vulpix, the fiery Fox Pokémon (and it’s icy counterpart Alolan Vulpix), with its adorable face and fluffy tail who breathes fire as hot as the sun?

Or, was it Rhyhorn, the Spikes Pokémon? Rock-solid not only from its outer rocky plates but to its coveted exclusive move for Rhyperior.

Perhaps it is time for Machop, the Superpower Pokémon, to receive its official day in the spotlight, although it’s shiny variant has already been released and caught by several Trainers all over.

Dratini by PokémonPets

Last, but not least, there’s Dratini, the Dragon Pokémon. Having already had its own Community Day in February 2018, this little dragon is peaking the interests of many in the PvP Community as well as newcomers.

Who did the world choose as their winner?!
