Immediately following the scheduled end of the Community Day, from 5:00pm to 10:00pm local time, unique Four-Star Raids against Charjabug will be take place. When Trainers defeat the Charjabug Raid Boss, Grubbin will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. Trainers can only join these raids using Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used. Grubbin appearing as a result of these raids will have the same odds of appearing as Shiny as during the main Community Day event.

The following event bonuses will also be active throughout the event:
  • 3× XP for catching Pokémon
  • 2× Candy for catching Pokémon.
  • 2× chance for Trainers level 31 and up to receive Candy XL from catching Pokémon
  • Lure Modules and Incense (excluding Daily Adventure Incense) activated during the event will last for three hours.
  • Trainers can receive an in-game surprise by taking a few snapshots during Community Day
  • One additional Special Trade can be made for a maximum of three for the day (active from 2pm to 10pm)
  • Trades will require 50% less Stardust (active from 2:00pm to 10:00pm)
