Featured Poliwrath & Politoed Attacks
Evolving Poilwhirl into Poliwrath or Politoed until 10 PM local time on the Community Day will give them an exclusive featured attack.
Poliwrath will get the fast attack Counter, which has 8 power in trainer battles and 12 power in Gyms and Raids.
Meanwhile, Politoed can get the charged attack, Ice Beam. This has 90 power in all battles!
Poliwag Community Day Raid Battles
Following the Community Day, from 5 PM to 10 PM local time, Pokemon trainers will be able to battle Poliwag’s evolution, Poliwhirl, in Tier 4 Raids.
Like all Community Day Raids, Remote Raid Passes cannot be used to participate in Poliwhril Raids.
Additionally, winning one of these Raids will activate a great in-game bonus. For 30 minutes after winning a Poliwhirl Raid, Poliwag will spawn around the PokeStop.
There will be Timed Research and limited-time Field Research to complete during the Poliwag Community Day event.
You’ll want to complete plenty of these as they can reward you with King’s Rocks, the item required to evolve Poliwhirl into Politoed, Ultra Balls, Poliwag encounters, and more!
Additionally, players can purchase the Slippery Swirls Research Ticket from the in-game shop for $1 (or local currency equivalent). This Research will also contain plenty of great rewards centered around Poliwag!
