Pokemon Go's October 2022 Community Day will feature Litwick

Pokémon Go just concluded this month’s Community Day event, which featured Roggenrola. We’re also over halfway through September, with most events wrapped up. The Test Your Mettle finishes tomorrow and then, besides raids and spotlight hours, only the Pokémon Go Fashion Week remains. But it’s time to look a little ahead as Niantic have already revealed October’s Community Day Pokémon.

Joining Pokémon Go for the October 2022 Community Day on October 15th is Litwick, the Candle Pokémon. It suits the theme as we’ll also celebrate Halloween in October so be prepared for more spookiness next month. Between 2:00 and 5:00 pm local time, players will find Litwick more often in the wild, with the Shiny variant hiding somewhere in the bushes as well.

As it is with these events, evolving Litwick into Chandelure before 10:00 pm on the 15th will have additional benefits. Going from Litwick to Lampent and finally to Chandelure will ensure that the latter knows the Charged Attack Poltergeist, which does 140 damage in Trainer Battles, Gyms, and Raids.

After the initial celebrations are over, a Bonus Raid Battle will take place between 5:00 and 10:00 pm local time. Here, players will find Lampent in four-star raids, and, after winning the fight, Litwick will appear at a much higher rate in a 300m radius around the gym for half an hour.

To make evolving Litwick easier, a bunch of event bonuses will also be active. Players will receive 3x XP and 2x Candy for catching Pokémon, Lure Modules and Incense will last three hours, and up to two Special Trades can be made, with regular Trades costing 50% less Stardust as well.

Next month’s Community Day Special Research Story has been titled Field Notes: Trick of the Light, with the tickets costing $1.00 or your local equivalent. Don’t forget to spin the PokéStops and open gifts to receive event-exclusive Litwick stickers!
