January’s analysis day starred the ugly duckling-fashion fish Feebas, and it wasn’t precisely a hit. It promised an opportunity at a shiny Feebas via particular analysis duties, however most gamers discovered that the analysis duties took too lengthy and the shiny possibilities have been too low for anybody to get many significant rewards from the three hours of playtime. The developer appears to have gone again to the drafting board for February as a result of Clamperl is a way more fascinating featured creature.

Clamperl is a brand new Pokémon for Pokémon GO: it was one of many beforehand held-again creatures from Gen three because of an uncommon evolution mechanic in the primary video games that has it evolving into both Huntail or Gorebyss based mostly on what merchandise it is holding throughout a commerce. Niantic will not be utilizing the identical mechanic this time round, however it’s nonetheless good to have the ability to fill in a few of these longstanding Pokédex gaps. We’ve not gotten any info on whether or not or not Clamperl will are available a shiny variant but, nevertheless it’s nonetheless potential.
