For Pokémon GO's Community Day in October, the featured Pokémon is Litwick. It's going to appear more frequently in the wild during the event, and trainers lucky enough get a chance to encounter a Shiny version. The Community Day next month is scheduled for October 15 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., local time.

During Community Day, those able to evolve Lampent, which is Litwick's evolution, can obtain a Chandelure that knows the Charged Attack Poltergeist.

Event Bonuses

For Community Day, the event bonuses that trainers can enjoy include:

  • 3× XP for catching Pokémon.
  • 2× Candy for catching Pokémon.
  • 2× chance for Trainers level 31 and up to receive XL Candy from catching Pokemon.
  • Lure Modules activated during the event last for three hours.
  • Incense activated during the event lasts for three hours.
  • Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise.

Some bonuses will be active five hours after Community Day ends. From 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., players can enjoy these:

  • One additional Special Trade can be made for a maximum of two for the day.
  • Trades made need 50% less Stardust.

Raid Battles

There will be Bonus Raid Battles on October 15 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., local time. In particular, these are four-star Raid Battles where trainers go against Lampent. Once the four-star Raid Battle has been successfully completed, Litwick starts to appear in a 300-meter radius around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. There's even a Shiny one to encounter for those who are lucky enough.

Special Research Story

For October Community Day, trainers are invited to join the exclusive Special Research story, which is Field Notes: Trick of the Light. It can be accessed for $1.

Just a quick reminder for those new to the game, trainers can now buy and gift tickets to their friends. However, they need to get a Friendship level of at least Great Friends.

Playing with Others

Those looking for other trainers in their area to trade, battle, or join Raid Battles with on Community Day, simply check out the Community Day map.

By looking for Community Parks, trainers can find areas in their city that are historically popular places for Community Day.
