Bonus raid battles

As is now the theme for 5 hour after the event ends between 5-10pm local time Four star raid battles featuring Lampent will spawn. Completing these will spawn Litwick within a 300 metre rdius around the gym where the raid has taken place for 30 minutes

The same spawn rates and shiny chance as during the event will be active. Trainers can only take part via in-person raiding so remote raiding isn’t allowed

Thoughts on the Litwick community day

Litwick has been a requested community day since it debuted last year so its nice to see Niantic listen and give players what they wanted for once

The boosts on the Com day are excellent with 3x catch XP probably the best boost we could ask for

Litwick and its evolution Chandelure is an excellent Pokemon for raiding and an option for PvP too  Its community day move looks to be incredibly powerful but its energy requirement will affect how viable it is given Chandelure’s already viable moveset of Shadow Ball and Flame Charge

The Shiny for the Litwick family is one of the most desired by the community

How excited are you for the October Community day?
