If you evolve Dartrix into a Decidueye during Rowlet Community Day, it will learn the special Frenzy Plant Charged Attack. This attack has a power of 100 for both trainer battles and use in gyms and raids.

In addition, Decidueye will gain the ability to learn the Spirit Shackle charged attack starting with this event. This attack has a power of 50 in trainer battles and can lower the opposing Pokemon’s defense. In gyms and raids, its power is 70.

Rowlet Community Day Special Research Story

Pokemon Go players will have the option to purchase access to an event-exclusive Community Day Special Research story. Tickets will cost $1 USD (or local equivalent).

At this time, we don’t have any further details on what this special research story will entail.

In addition to the paid tier, Pokemon Go’s January 2024 Community Day will feature themed Field Research tasks.

These tasks will include rewards like Stardust, Ultra Balls, and more chances to encounter the star of the day, Rowlet.

Bonus Raid Battles After Pokemon Go Rowlet Community Day

After Rowlet Community Day ends at 5 PM, the fun rolls right into special four-star raid battles for the next five hours. These four-star raids will feature Dartrix, the evolved version of Rowlet.

Players unfortunately can’t access these bonus raids using remote raid passes, so you’ll need to be up close and personal with a gym to partake.

If you do participate in these bonus raids and successfully complete them, Rowlet will spawn around that gym for the next half hour.
