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 unique 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!
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 Raid Battles.
Bonus for completing four-star Raid Battles
Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Braixen, Fennekin will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. If youâ€™re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one!*
*Fennekin that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokemon as those that appear during May Community Dayâ€™s three-hour event period.
May Community Day-themed Field Research will be available! Catch Fennekin to earn rewards such as additional Fennekin encounters, Stardust, Ultra Balls, and more!
Youâ€™ll be able to get event-themed stickers by spinning PokÃ©Stops, opening Gifts, and purchasing them from the in-game shop.
