One additional Special Trade can be made for a maximum of two for the day.
Trades will require 50% less Stardust.
The trade bonuses will be available for five hours after the event, until 10 pm local time.
Bonus Raid Battles
After the main Pokemon Go Community Day event ends, from 5 pm to 10 pm local time, you can take on special four-star Raid Battles.
These battles will feature Charjabug, and if you emerge victorious, more Grubbin will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. As always, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for a shiny.
