Pokemon Go’s February 2023 Community Day event features Noibat! Here’s everything you need to know including exclusive moves, bonuses, event times, and a list of previous Community Day stars.
The Community Day is a monthly event in Pokemon Go that puts the focus on a specific Pokemon, with boosted wild spawns, increased Shiny chances, exclusive moves when evolved, and bonuses like extended Incense duration.
Community Days now last for three hours and they always take place on the weekend, so most players can get involved. They’re some of the most popular events in the Pokemon Go Calendar alongside Spotlight Hours.
Below, you’ll find plenty of information to help you make the most of the February 2023 Community Day event, which stars Noibat and its evolution, Noivern.

Niantic has confirmed that the next Pokemon Go Community Day will take place on Sunday, February 5, 2023, from 2 pm to 5 pm in each trainer’s local time.
The headliner for the February 2023 Community Day is Noibat, also known as the Sound Wave Pokemon.
Not only is Noibat’s evolution Noivern a solid choice for the Great League, but if you’re lucky, you might also encounter a Shiny one!
Players who evolve a Noibat during event hours (or up to five hours after) will get a Noivern that knows the Normal-type Charged Attack: Boomburst.
The following bonuses will be in effect during February Community Day event hours:
- 2x Candy and 3x Stardust when catching Pokemon.
- 2x Chance to receive XL Candy for trainers level 31 and up.
- Lure Modules and Incense activated during the event will last for three hours.
- Take a few snapshots during Community Day for a surprise!
- Trades made during and five hours after the event will require 50% less stardust.
- One additional special trade can be made during the event.
While the Noibat Community Day ends at 5 PM, trainers will be able to enjoy 4-Star Raid Battles with Noibat until 10 PM. Once defeated, wild Noibat will spawn near the Gym for the next 30 minutes.
Be aware that these bonus 4-Star Raid Battles cannot be accessed with Remote Raid Passes.
If you’re going to take part in a Community Day, there are a few things you can do to prepare and get the most out of the event:
- Purchase an Incense to use on the day as they will last longer than usual.
- Save any Lure Modules you have as they will last for three hours during the event.
- Stock up on lots of Ultra Balls so you can catch plenty of the headline Pokemon.
- Transfer any unwanted Pokemon so you’ll have space for all the catching you’ll do.
- Check the bonuses that run during the event so you can take advantage of them.
There will also be a ticket for the February Community Day Special Research story, Abundant Noise, available to purchase from the in-game Shop closer to the event date.

You may notice that every December headliner is missing from this list. That’s because, in December, Niantic traditionally features every Pokemon from the past year as headliners at the same time.
Alongside all of these Community Days, there have been a few Community Day Classics that bring back old headliners. The next one is scheduled for February 21, although the star hasn’t been announced yet.
