Pokémon GO Roggenrola Community Day – Featured Pokémon
As mentioned above, Roggenrola is the featured Pokémon for this Community Day event, where they’ll have access to some fantastic features. Firstly, if they evolve Boldore to Gigalith, they can utilize the latter Pokémon’s Charged Attack, Meteor Beam, during the event or five hours afterward.
Additionally, there’s an exclusive Community Day Special Research story, Rock ‘n’ Roll, available for the event. They can acquire this using real-world money equivalent to $1,00 to purchase a ticket to access it and complete all the assigned tasks for a chance to obtain a Mythical Pokémon.
Pokémon GO Roggenrola Community Day – Bonus Raid Battles
In addition to Roggenrola spawning in the wild for this event, once it concludes, a Special Bonus Raid Battle will begin on 18th September 2022 between 5 pm and 10 pm local time. During this special Raid event, Roggenrola’s evolved form, Boldore, will feature in a four-star Raid which they can use either a Raid Pass or Premium Battle Pass to participate.
