Bonus Raid Battles after Community Day

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 Litwick to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes!

Four-star Raid Battles

Lampent 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.

  • Lampent

Bonus for completing Four-star Raid Battles

Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Lampent, Litwick 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!*

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