Evolving Dartrix into Decidueye from 2 PM until 10 PM local time on January 6, 2024, will give you a Decidueye that knows the featured attack Frenzy Plant. This is a Grass-type charged attack that has 100 power!

Dartrix Raids

From 5 PM until 10 PM local time on January 6, directly after the Pokemon GO Rowlet Community Day, Dartrix will be in 3-Star Raids.

Like all Community Day Raids, you cannot take part in them remotely. Therefore, you must visit a Gym in person and start the Raid using a Raid Pass or Premium Battle Pass.

What’s more, if you win a Dartrix Raid, Rowlet will spawn in the area around the Gym for 30 minutes. This is great for players who want to farm more Rowlet Candy or catch a shiny Rowlet before the day is over!

Pokemon GO players can purchase the paid Rowlet Community Day Research from the in-game shop. It costs $1 (or local currency equivalent), and the rewards will likely include encounters with all of the Rowlet family, as well as extra Poke Balls!

Additionally, there will be Community Day Field Research Tasks for players to pick up and complete. The rewards for these include additional encounters with Rowlet, Stardust, and Ultra Balls.
