Pokemon GO players are in for a treat with the announcement of a new event featuring the Ghost-type Pokemon, Litwick. With its unique abilities and exclusive attack, October’s Community Day is set to be an exciting and memorable experience. In this article, we will dive into the details of the event and explore all the bonuses and features that players can expect.
A Spooky Pokemon Takes the Spotlight
On October 15, 2022, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. local time, trainers will have the chance to encounter Litwick more frequently in the wild. This Ghost- and Fire-type Pokemon will captivate players with its eerie charm and powerful abilities. Additionally, lucky trainers might stumble upon a Shiny Litwick, adding to the excitement of the event. Evolution plays a key role as well. By evolving Lampent, the evolution of Litwick, into Chandelure during or up to five hours after the event, trainers will obtain a Chandelure that knows the exclusive Charged Attack, Poltergeist. This attack, making its debut in Pokemon GO, will surely be a valuable addition to any trainer’s arsenal.
To further enhance the Community Day experience, several bonuses will be active during the event:
- 3x Experience Points (XP) for catching Pokemon
- 2x Chance for trainers at Level 31 and above to receive Candy XL for catching Pokemon

Special Research: Field Notes: Trick of the Light
For trainers seeking a deeper and more immersive experience, a Community Day Special Research story titled “Field Notes: Trick of the Light” is available.

It is worth noting that trainers can also purchase tickets as gifts for friends they have reached the Great Friends or higher friendship level with. Certain restrictions apply, but this feature allows trainers to share the joy and excitement of the event with their fellow Pokemon enthusiasts.
Bonus Raid Battles
The thrill doesn’t end with the three-hour Community Day event. From 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time, trainers can join four-star Raid Battles to challenge Lampent. Victory in these battles will unlock the appearance of more Litwick in a 300-meter radius around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. Trainers may even have the chance to encounter a Shiny Litwick during these special raid encounters. It is important to note that these four-star raids can only be accessed using Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes, and remote raid passes cannot be used.
