  • Keep an eye out for the launch date of the Special Research tale tickets.
  • Don’t forget that you can gift a ticket to a friend so they can participate in the Special Research for this Community Day as well!

Trainers will have the opportunity to take on distinctive four-star Raid Battle challenges following the three-hour Community Day event. For 30 minutes after winning one of these raids, more Starly will start to swarm the gym where it took place!

Please be aware that the Community Day benefits mentioned in the sections above titled “Event bonuses” and “Bonuses for groups” only apply to the three-hour Community Day event time.

Bonus for completing Four-star Raid Battles

Once you defeat Staravia in a four-star Raid Battle, Starly will begin to appear in a 300-meter radius around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one! Starly that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokémon as those that appear during July Community Day’s three-hour event period.
