The Pokemon Go November 2021 Community Day has been revealed along with details on the Halloween Event Part 2, a new Nike collaboration, and a dash of history about Community Days in general.
The last few months have been a bit rough for Pokemon Go. The game's community revolted against Niantic's plan to revert gameplay changes made in light of COVID-19. Niantic promised to address these concerns and it actually followed through, reversing its decision to change the interaction radius for PokeStops and Gyms. The company also announced that it will be expanding regional bonuses that were previously exclusive to the U.S. and New Zealand to everyone else in the world. Now, the next Community Day is on the way -- and it's your best chance to catch a shiny Shinx.
What's Coming in the Pokemon Go November 2021 Community Day?
The Pokemon Go November 2021 Community Day is going to feature Shinx as a headliner. As is typical, Shinx will be spawning more often in the wild; naturally, this means that you'll have higher chances of catching a Shiny Shinx as well.
Shinx's evolution is also getting a bit of time in the limelight: if you can manage to evolve a Shinx into a Luxio during the Pokemon Go November 2021 Community Day (or up to two hours afterward), it will be guaranteed to have the Charged Attack Psychic Fangs. Naturally, there will also be event bonuses and a Special Research Story; you can read about everything coming in this Community Day on the game's official website.
You'll be able to play the Pokemon Go November 2021 Community Day on Sunday, November 21, 2021, from 11:00 AM-5:00 PM local time. That's a fair amount of advance notice for this Community Day, and that's deliberate; Pokemon Go's Director of Global Product Marketing Michael Steranka explains in a new developer diary that Niantic is making an effort to give Trainers more time to plan for upcoming events by advancing it as far in advance as possible.
Also Arriving: Pokemon Go Halloween Event Part 2 and Nike Collaboration
Aside from the Pokemon Go November 2021 Community Day, the Halloween Event Part 2 is available right now!. This event features the debut of Phantump, Trevenant, Pumpkaboo, and Gourgeist. It also adds a 2x bonus for candy when transferring, catching, and hatching. You can read about all of the new goodies on Reddit.
Additionally, Pokemon fansite Seribii reports that a new collaboration event with Nike is underway in the UK and Europe. Spin a PokeStop at sponsored JD Sports stores and you'll be able to get your hands on some cool Nike Air customizations.
The next few weeks are certainly packed with plenty of cool things for Trainers to do! You can join in the fun yourself by playing Pokemon Go for free on Android and iOS via its official website.
