Pokémon GO October 2022 Community Day – Event Bonuses, Litwick, and Timed Research

Candles for days!

Niantic has announced the next Community Day Pokémon during the Season of Light celebration. October 2022's featured Community Day Pokémon will be Litwick. The Community Day will take place on October 152022, from 2pm to 5pm local time. Litwick's shiny can be hard to spot and features a slightly different colored flame on its head. It evolves into Chandelure, which sports bright orange flames, in contrast to its normal dark blue/purple flames.

Players who evolve their Litwick into Chandelure during the event or up to five hours later will obtain a Pokémon that knows the move Poltergeist. This powerful Ghost-type move can deal up to 140 Damage to opponents in Trainer, Gym, and Raid battles. This is a great move to grab while it's available. It will cost 125 Litwick Candy in total to evolve into its final evolution, but players should have no problem obtaining this amount thanks to the Event Bonuses given out during Community Day.
