Bonus Raid Battles after Community Day: Saturday, January 6, 2024, 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 special four-star Raid Battles. Claiming victory in one of these raids will cause more Rowlet to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes!

Dartrix will be appearing 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.

Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Dartrix, additional Rowlet will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one! Rowlet that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokémon as those that appear during January Community Day’s three-hour event period.

January Community Day–themed Field Research will be available! Catch Rowlet to earn rewards such as additional encounters with Rowlet, Stardust, Ultra Balls, and more!

Be on the lookout for Showcases at different PokéStops during Rowlet Community Day!

An Ultra Community Day Box featuring 120 Ultra Balls, 15 Silver Pinap Berries, six Incubators, and one Incense will be available on the Pokémon GO Web Store during the event for $9.99.

Two Community Day bundles will be available during this event.

For 1,350 PokéCoins, you will get 50 Ultra Balls, five Super Incubators, one Elite Charged TM, and five Lucky Eggs.

For 480 PokéCoins, you will get 30 Ultra Balls, one Incense, three Super Incubators, and one Lure Module.
