We are all set for Pokemon Go 2019 February Community Day! Niantic has confirmed the bonus for the big day. The exclusive move of the next gene 4 Pokemon released, Mammoswine, has also been revealed!
With all the hype around Mammoswine, you can be forgiven for thinking mammoth that, eight foot long Pokemon was the head of the 2019 February Community Day. Instead, it is Mammoswine's first development, Swinub, which headlines Pokemon G.'s second social day in 2019.
First introduced in gene 2, Swinub is the perfect Pokemon feature for February. The fact is an ice-type perfectly combines with its gene 4 evolution. Mammoswine first appeared in the Pokemon games Diamond and Pearl. Swinub must be developed into Piloswine, which is also introduced into gene 2, before you can develop into Mammoswine.
Pokemon's fourth generation takes place in the Sinnoh region. New evolutions were added for Pokemon that existed in previous generations. These Pokemon require a Sinnoh stone to develop them.
The February Community Day encourages these developments by offering a great bonus on the previously difficult to get Sinnoh stones. During the event you can earn up to 10 Sinnoh stones. These are five to only participate in a coaching team and another five to meet a coach!
Of course this requires Sinnohsten to develop Piloswine into Mammoswine.

Pokemon Go community days always have an exclusive move. A special feature that can only be learned during the event.
It is not surprising that Mammoswine's exclusive feature has been announced to be Ancient Power. It can be disappointing for some Pokemon Go coaches who would have hoped for a more powerful move. Its second trait, avalanche, is considered a superior charging traffic.
But with the latest rebalancing of Pokemon Go movements, there is a chance that it will be more powerful than some anticipate.
