The Pokemon GO Noibat Community Day is taking place from 2 PM to 5 PM local time on Sunday, February 5, 2023.
During this time, Noibat will be spawning much more often in the wild. What’s more, there will be some great event bonuses, a 4-Star Raid, and an exclusive Noivern attack to earn!
However, one of the best parts of Community Days in Pokemon GO is that they are a great time to catch shinies. But can you catch shiny Noibat in Pokemon GO?

4-Star Raid on February 2023 Pokemon GO Community Day
From 5 PM to 10 PM, after the Community Day itself has ended, Noibat will appear in Tier 4 Raid battles.
However, like usual Tier 4 Community Day Raids, players will have to take part in them in person. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used!
Check out our Pokemon GO Noibat Raid guide if you need some help defeating this Tier 4 Raid boss!
After winning a Noibat Raid, additional Noibat will spawn around the Raid Gym for 30 minutes, giving players one last chance to earn Noibat Candy before the day is over!
Find out how to boost the amount of Candy you earn in Pokemon GO to make the most of the increased Noibat spawns.
Exclusive Noivern Attack – Boomburst
Evolving Noibat at any point from 2 PM to 10 PM on the Community Day will give players a Noivern, which knows the exclusive attack Boomburst.
This is a Normal-type charged attack that has 150 power in trainer battles and 140 power in Gyms and Raids.
After the Community Day, the only way to teach Noivern this move attack is by using an Elite Charged TM!
Abundant Noise Special Research Ticket
Players who want some Special Research to complete on the Noibat Community Day can purchase the Abundant Noise Ticket from the in-game shop for $1 (or local currency equivalent).
Completing this Research will reward players with plenty of Noibat encounters and Candy, but it must be completed before the Community Day ends!
The Noibat Community Day is just one of many Pokemon GO events happening this month, giving players plenty to look forward to!
