 Players will be able to get this particular version of the popular character during the January 2020 Community Day by evolving Piplup's evolved form of Prinplup into Empoleon. Players must evolve their Prinplup during the event or up to two hours after it has ended to get the unique version. What makes this version of the powerful creature unique is that it will know an attack it can not usually learn.

Unfortunately, Niantic has not officially revealed what this exact attack would be. We will update this article with the attack that the January 2020 Community Day Empoleon will know when it is formally announced.
