Niantic's next Community Day event for Pokemon GO will feature Dratini. If you manage to capture and evolve the Pokemon into a Dragonite while the event is live, it will learn the powerful Draco Meteor move.

Pokemon GO's upcoming Community Day event is set to happen on 24 February 2018. As part of the three hour long event, Trainers everywhere will be given a shot at capturing a Gen 1 dragon type Pokemon Dratini.

Dratini will start making its rounds at 10:00 am GMT and remain available to catch until 01:00 pm GMT on 24 February 2018. The resource bonus this time around will be triple Stardust.

As it was the case with the previous Community Day, this one will grant a special move to the monster. Dratini's special move will be Draco Meteor, but there will be some steps you'll need to take in order to learn it.

If you manage to evolve your Dratini into a Dragonair and then into a Dragonite, it will learn the powerful Dragon-type move Draco Meteor. The good news: all Dragoniar monsters you have caught in the past will also learn the new move. The bad news: you have to evolve Dratini into a Dragonite while the event is still active. 

There's no doubt that this will require some dedication but a Dragonite with a Draco Meteor will be a valued addition to your Pokedex. Not to mention the fact it will come in handy during Gym battles and Raid battles.

A Dragonite that knows Draco Meteor will come with some limited bragging rights as well, if you happen to attend one of Niantic Labs' upcoming community events where you actually have to show up in person, much like what happened in Chicago or Japan last year.

Valentine's day and the Lunar New Year celebrations have come to an end, which gives you a couple of days to get ready for the upcoming Community Day. Also, don't forget that Rayquaza is available to catch until 16 March 2018.
