Pokemon Go's next Community Day event takes place Nov. 21 and features the electric Pokemon Shinx.


Pokemon Go's November Community Day has arrived. The event takes place today, Nov. 21, and features Shinx, an electric-type Pokemon that debuted in the original Pokemon Diamond and Pearl games. In addition to increased Shinx spawns, players will be able to take advantage of other in-game bonuses during the event, including exclusive Research tasks and decreased egg hatching distance. Here's everything you need to know about November's Community Day.

When is Pokemon Go's November Community Day?

Pokemon Go's November Community Day takes place on Sunday, Nov. 21, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time.

November's featured Pokemon: Shinx

The star of November's Community Day is Shinx, an electric type originally introduced in the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl games. Throughout the event, Shinx will appear in the wild and in raid battles more frequently than usual, and players will have an increased chance of coming across a Shiny Shinx.

November Community Day move: Psychic Fangs

If players are able to evolve Luxio -- Shinx's evolved form -- into Luxray before 7 p.m. local time on the day of the event, the Pokemon will learn Psychic Fangs, a psychic-type Charged Attack that wasn't previously available in Pokemon Go. On top of dishing out damage to opposing Pokemon, Psychic Fangs can lower their defense stat.

Community Day bonuses

In addition to increased Shinx spawns, a few other in-game bonuses will be active throughout November's Community Day. First, eggs will hatch at a quarter of the distance they normally require during the event. Lure Modules and Incense will also remain active for three hours rather than their normal durations. Finally, you'll earn triple the usual amount of candy for transferring Pokemon, and you'll be four times as likely to get a Candy XL when you make a transfer.

Community Day bundle and Research

On top of the other in-game bonuses, there will be a paid Special Research story during November's Community Day called Flash, Spark, and Gleam. A ticket to access the story costs $1. A special Community Day bundle will also be on sale in Pokemon Go's item shop. The bundle costs 1,280 PokeCoins and contains the following:

  • 50 Ultra Balls
  • 4 Incense
  • 4 Star Pieces
  • 1 Elite Charged TM
