Featured Pokemon: Litwick
For 2022's October community day, it's only fitting that the Pokemon of choice would be a ghost type to fit the spooky Halloween season and this year's choice is Litwick!
The generation five ghost-type Pokemon has proven to be a popular choice among players, with Chandelure being a powerful fire and ghost type, among the best in the current Pokemon Go meta.
Evolving the Litwick all the way to a Chandelure during the event will be given the special move Poltergeist, a move that will be available for four hours after the event finishes in your local area.
Pokemon Go Litwick Community Day Date & Time.
The October Community Day will be taking place on Saturday, 15th October 2022, returning to the more popular day, much to the joy of fans who struggle to make the Sunday community days work.
As is usually the case with Pokemon Go, the Litwick event will begin at the standard local time across the world, beginning at 14:00 and ending at 17:00 with some of the effects running for a few hours afterwards.
Special Research Story - Trick of the Light
For the trainer who wants that little bit extra out of their Litwick community day experience for £0.78 GBP / $1.00 USD, you can buy the special research ticket which will unlock a unique community day-themed set of tasks to give you more items, encounters and stardust.
There will be three levels of tasks with the fourth set of bonus rewards upon completion.
Litwick Community Day Bonuses
As is standard for Pokemon Go community days, there will be massive bonuses active during the day, namely bonuses to catch XP, candy and stardust. Trades will also be cheaper, letting people get those extra dex entries for cheaper.
Incenses and lures activated during the October community day will last for three hours instead of the usual one, giving you more bang for your buck as you hunt down Litwick.
According to The Silph Road who conducted their own research on the Pokemon GO shiny odds, The boosted odds of community days is 1 in 25 encounters which makes coming across a shiny Pokemon quite likely but not guaranteed.
If you catch enough Litwick, you may even get several shiny Pokemon in one day, giving you a small army of beautiful orange-flamed Chandelure to show off to your friends.
