October Community Day features Litwick, the Candle Pokémon. On October 15, 2022, from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. local time, Litwick will appear more frequently in the wild, and if you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny one.

Chandelure evolved during the event (or up to five hours afterward) will know the Charged Attack Poltergeist Ghost. Trainers will also get 3× XP and 2× Candy for catching Pokémon, with additional 2× chance of getting XL Candy for Trainers level 31 and up.

In addition to other bonuses, Lampent will appear in 4-Star Raids after the Community Day main three-hour window ends.

Litwick will appear more frequently in the wild. If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Litwick during the event. Litwick will be appearing in large numbers during the event, and around defeated Gyms during the Lampent Raid Battles after hours event.

Featured attack: Poltergeist

Poltergeist is Chandelure’s exclusive Community Day move. It’s a Ghost-type Charged Attack that can be obtained by evolving Lampent (Litwick’s evolution) during the event, or up to five hours afterward.

Poltergeist stats are as follows:

  • Trainer Battles: 140 Power
  • Gyms and raids: 140 Power

We’ve written two large pieces on Poltergeist, clearing up confusion on whether or not it is useful in PvE and PvP:
