*** The three-hour lure bonus excludes Golden Lure Modules.


Evolve Braixen (Fennekin’s Evolution) during the event or up to five hours afterward to get a Delphox that knows the Charged Attack Blast Burn.

While Braixen evolved into Delphox during the event will know Blast Burn, starting at the beginning of the event, Delphox will be able to learn the Charged Attack Mystical Fire. Delphox will still be able to learn Mystical Fire after the conclusion of the event.

Leek’s Note: In other words, Mystical Fire will be added to it’s move pool. It’s not a guaranteed move during Community Day. The only guaranteed move is Blast Burn in its the first Charged Move slot.

Blast Burn (Fire-type)

  • Trainer Battles: 110 power
  • Gyms and raids: 110 power

Mystical Fire (Fire-type)

  • Trainer Battles: 60 power, and decreases your opponent’s Attack.
  • Gyms and raids: 60 power

Photobomb During the event you can snap an AR Photo and get photobombed by Fennekin.


The following Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild.

Bonus Raid Battles after Community Day

Sunday, May 21, 2023, from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time

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

Four-star Raid Battles

Braixen will appear in four-star raids!

You can only join these raids using Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used to join these raids.

  • Braixen

Bonus for completing Four-star Raid Battles

Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Braixen, Fennekin 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!*

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