Featured Attacks


Blast Burn

Community Day exclusive move

Evolve Braixen (Fennekin’s Evolution) during the event or up to five hours afterward to get a Delphox that knows the Charged Attack Blast Burn.

  • Trainer Battles: 110 power
  • Gyms and raids: 110 power

Mystical Fire

While Braixen evolved into Delphox during the event will know Blast Burn, starting at the beginning of the event, Delphox will be able to learn the Charged Attack Mystical Fire.  Delphox will still be able to learn Mystical Fire after the conclusion of the event.

  • Trainer Battles: 60 power, and decreases your opponent’s Attack.
  • Gyms and raids: 60 power

Four-Star Raids


Braixen will appear in four-star raids! After the three-hour Community Day event ends, Trainers will be able to take on unique four-star Raid Battles. Claiming victory in one of these raids will cause more Fennekin to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes! Defeat Braixen using our special tier 4 raid guide here.

Event icon May 21, 2023, 5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. local time
Raid icon You can only join these raids using Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used to join these Raid Battles.

Bonus for completing four-star Raid Battles

Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Braixen, Fennekin will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one (*)!

*Fennekin that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokémon as those that appear during May Community Day’s three-hour event period.
