Starly Community Day

Deino's time in the spotlight is over, so what's next on the list? To answer that, we're going back to Sinnoh, as Starly is next in line. This is basically the Pidgey of that region, so it doesn't quite hold the weight of a Pseudo-Legendary Pokemon, but Staraptor still has definite utility for anyone looking for Flying Type damage, making this a worthwhile Community Day for many players, if only for how comparatively easy Staraptor is to raise.

After the three-hour Community Day event ends, Trainers will be able to challenge unique four-star Raid Battles. Claiming victory in one of these raids will cause more Starly to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes!

Staravia will be appearing in four-star raids!

These Raids can only be accessed with Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used.



Bonus for completing Four-star Raid Battles

Once you defeat Staravia in a four-star Raid Battle, Starly will begin to appear in a 300-meter radius around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one!*

* Starly that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokémon as those that appear during July Community Day’s three-hour event period.


You’ll be able to get event-themed stickers by spinning PokéStops, opening Gifts, and purchasing them from the in-game shop.
