Wondering what events are taking place in Pokemon Go in November 2022? We’ve got a full list of key dates to add to your calendar, from Community Days to Spotlight Hours and one-off special events.

Six years on from its launch, Pokemon Go still has a very loyal community of players around the world who log in every day to catch ’em all and battle with friends. A big reason for that is the regular events that Niantic hosts in the game.

Team Go Rocket are up to their usual tricks.

Another Team Go Rocket Takeover will take place at the end of the Greedy Gluttons event, so you can expect to see a boost in Team Go Rocket member activity and some new Shadow Pokemon.

These takeovers usually switch up the Pokemon that Arlo, Sierra, Cliff, and even Giovanni send out into battle, so you can be sure that we’ll update their lineups and counters if that does happen.

We’ll update this page when more event details are revealed.

Astral Eclipse event (November 23 – 28)

The Season of Light will come to an end with the Astral Eclipse event, which will include the release of the final part of the ongoing Cosmic Companion Special Research story.
