Once a funny little Pokemon turned meme thanks to Gamefreak's revelation of its existence in Generation 6/Kalos, Goomy is a fun little slug-dragon that's generally well liked within the Pokemon community... and now it's finally time for this slimy little guy to slide into the spotlight.

With the introduction of a new Community Day, we've got a brand new Community Day move for Goodra and countless new chances to try for the right IVs, so let's get into it!

Bonus Raid Battles After Community Day

Sunday, June 9, 2024, from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time

After the three-hour Community Day event ends, Trainers will be able to take on special four-star Raid Battles. Claiming victory in one of these raids will cause more Goomy to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes!

Four-Star Raid Battles

Sliggoo will appear in four-star raids!

You can only join these raids using Raid Passes and Premium Battle Passes. Remote Raid Passes cannot be used to join these Raid Battles.

Four-Star Raid Battle Bonus

Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Sliggoo, additional Goomy will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes.*

*Goomy that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokémon as those that appear during June Community Day’s three-hour event period.

Timed Research

Timed Research awarding one Rainy Lure will be available between 2:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time.

June Community Day–themed Field Research will be available! Catch Goomy to earn rewards such as Stardust, Great Balls, additional encounters with Goomy, and more!
