Immediately following the scheduled end of the Community Day, from 5:00pm to 10:00pm local time, unique Four-Star Raids against Frogadier will be take place. When Trainers defeat the Frogadier Raid Boss, Froakie 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. Froakie appearing as a result of these raids will have the same odds of appearing as Shiny as during the main Community Day event.

  • One additional Special Trade can be made for a maximum of three for the day (active from 2pm to 10pm)
