Community Day in December 2021 has arrived in Pokémon Go, giving players a rare opportunity to try to meet many Pokémon that have appeared in previous Community Day events. If you've missed one from 2020 or 2021, now is a good time to jump on it. One Pokémon you can catch during this time is Machop, but it won't appear too often. In this guide, we'll cover how to catch Machop during the December 2021 Community Day event in Pokémon Go and how to best find him.
The only way to find Machop during the event is in nature. It will not appear as an Egg Pokémon and will not appear in raids. We recommend exploring your local neighborhoods trying to find it, increasing your chances by putting incense on your character or setting a lure on a Pokéstop that you can visit frequently. Both are suitable methods for trying to find a Machop in your area. The December 2021 Community Day event will be held December 18-19 from 11am to 00pm in your local time zone, but you will receive prizes and bonuses from December 17-00.
Machop has a greater chance of spawning in the wild on Saturday, December 18. If you are looking to grow Machop candy or want to add a bright version of Machop to your collection, this will be the best time to do it. After Saturday, it can still appear in the wild on Sunday, but has a reduced chance of doing so due to the other Pokémon spawning. Make sure you grab as much Machop as you can on Saturday, December 18th for the December 2021 Community Day event.
