Bonus Raid Battles after Community Day

Saturday, August 13, 2022, from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm local time

After the three-hour Community Day event ends, Trainers will be able to challenge unique four-star Raid Battles. Claiming victory in one of these raids will cause more Galarian Zigzagoon to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes!

Four-star Raid Battles

Galarian Linoone will be appearing in four-star raids!

These Raids can only be accessed with Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used.

  • Galarian Linoone

Bonus for completing Four-star Raid Battles

Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Galarian Linoone, Galarian Zigzagoon will begin to appear in a 300-meter radius around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one!*

* Galarian Zigzagoon that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokémon as those that appear during August Community Day’s three-hour event period.
