  • Bonus Tier Four Raids featuring Charjabug: Niantic writes:
    • "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 Grubbin to appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes! Once you successfully complete a four-star Raid Battle against Charjabug, additional Grubbin will appear around the Gym that hosted the raid for 30 minutes. If you're lucky, you may encounter a Shiny Grubbin! Grubbin that appear under these circumstances will have the same chance of appearing as a Shiny Pokémon as those that appear during September Community Day's three-hour event period."
