Niantic has announced the next Community Day Pokémon to take place during the Season of Light celebration. October 2022’s featured Community Day Pokémon will be Litwick. The Community Day will take place on October 15, 2022, and will run from 2pm to 5pm local time. Litwick’s shiny can be hard to spot and features a slightly different colored flame on its head. It evolves into Chandelure, which sports bright orange flames, in contrast to its normal dark blue/purple flames.

If players evolve their Litwick into Chandelure during the event, and up to five hours after, they will obtain a Pokémon that knows the move Poltergeist. This is a very powerful Ghost-type move that can deal up to 140 Damage to opponents in Trainer, Gym, and Raid battles. This is a great move to grab while it’s available. It will cost 125 Litwick Candy in total to evolve into its final evolution, but players should have no problem obtaining this amount thanks to the Event Bonuses given out during the Community Day.

Event Bonuses

There are a lot of different Bonuses for players to take advantage of during this Community Day event. The full list can be found below:

  • Triple the XP for catching Pokémon.
  • Double the Candy gained from catching Pokémon.
  • Increased chance to gain XL Candy from catching Pokémon.
  • Lure Modules activated during the event will last for three hours.
  • Incense activated during the event will last for three hours.
  • Trades will cost 50% of the normal Stardust amount.
