Raids

Bonus Raid Battles after Community Day

Saturday, September 23, 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 Grubbin to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes!


Four-star Raid Battles

Charjabug 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.

  • Charjabug

Bonus for completing Four-star Raid Battles

Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Charjabug, Grubbin 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!*

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