Minccino Pokémon GO event is about to begin as players will be able to encounter the Chinchilla Pokémon after completing certain Field Research tasks starting at 2:00 p.m. local time.

Players will have three hours to complete the special research and have a chance at earning Minccino. That includes a shiny version as well!

Players need to head to PokeStops and finish the encounter or special Field Research request. Only then will they be able to catch Minccino. If you want If Chincinno, you'll need to evolve Minccino with candy and a Unova stone.

In a recent announcement, Niantic Labs revealed Pokémon GO players can catch Tornadus in raids starting Feb. 4, the ability to earn Woobat for the February research breakthrough, and enjoy all the features of the Valentine's Day event.

You can even catch new Pokémon like Audino. Audino is making its debut during the Valentine’s Day Celebration 2020. The event will begin on Feb. 14 at 8:00 a.m. local time and will continue to Feb. 17 10:00 p.m. local time.
