Pokemon GO Community Day November 2021’s Featured Pokemon Will Be Shinx

Niantic and The Pokemon Company have unveiled details for November 2021’s Pokemon GO Community Day.

The next Pokemon GO Community Day will run on 21 November 2021 (11am to 5pm, local time). This time, the featured Pokemon is Shinx, the Flash Pokemon from the Sinnoh region. Additionally, if players evolve Luxio (Shinx’s evolution) into Luxray during the event or up to two hours afterwards, it will learn the all-new move Psychic Fangs.

Bonus buffs during the event will include 3-hour incense, 3-hour lure modules, and one-quarter egg hatch distance. Additionally, a Special Research story titled “Flash, Spark, and Gleam” will also be available for $1 USD.
