Noibat Community Day takes place on February 5, 2023, and gives Trainers a chance to snag a Boomburst Noivern. Double Catch candy, triple catch stardust, and a Special Research story are coming as well. While Noibat may have already been released as a shiny, it is a rare one, and takes a whopping 400 candy to evolve, so this event is well worth grinding!
You can learn more about Boomburst (and Community Day Noivern) in JRE47’s PvP analysis and in MeteorAsh’s “Why Noivern with Boomburst is bad and what it needs” articles, both of which showcase the impact of Boomburst on Noivern’s perfromance.
