The next Pokemon Go Community Day is expected to take place in November 2021, and Trainers have already got some big theories about who the headliner could be.
Community Days are the biggest event of each month in Pokemon Go, with the spotlight shining on one specific Pokemon for a day full of themed Special Research tasks, bonuses like double XP or Stardust, and exclusive moves to unlock.
Unlike the weekly Spotlight Hours which only last for 60 minutes, Community Days typically give players six hours to make the most of everything there is to enjoy. Even better, they take place on weekends, so most Trainers can get involved.
Niantic hasn’t confirmed who will be appearing in the November 2021 Community Day yet, but there are already plenty of rumors and theories about who it could be! Here’s everything we know so far…
Pokemon Go November Community Day headliner rumors
The biggest theory for the November 2021 Community Day is that the headliner will be Shinx. Niantic recently teased that Trainers should expect an Electric-type that debuted in the Sinnoh region, so Shinx certainly seems like the most likely candidate.
Based on those teasers, another potential headliner is Pachirisu. This one seems unlikely, though, as Community Day stars are typically Pokemon that are able to evolve, which gives Trainers an incentive to take part and collect as much Candy as possible.
The final potential Electric-type from the Sinnoh region is Rotom. A Community Day would give Niantic the option to introduce all of Rotom’s forms to Pokemon Go, but similar to Pachirisu, it just doesn’t seem as likely as a Shinx Community Day.

Before these teasers were released, one of the biggest theories was that the headliner would be a Kalos region starter: Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie. This isn’t going to happen in November, but it does seem likely that one of them could be a December or January headliner.
Niantic has a history of alternating between starter and non-starter Pokemon in Community Days, a trend they revisited this year with the Unova trio. With Oshawott rounding them out September, the Kalos region starters are expected to follow in the near future.
When is the next Community Day in Pokemon Go?
Niantic have confirmed that the next big Community Day will take place in Pokemon Go on Sunday, November 21, 2021.
It will run from 11am to 5pm local time, so there’s no need to worry about time zones.
How to prepare for the November Community Day
If you’re going to take part in a Community Day, there are a few things you can do to prepare and get the most out of the event:
- Purchase two Incense to use throughout the day as they will last longer than usual.
- Save any Lure Modules you have as they will last for three hours during the event.
- Stock up on lots of Poke Balls so you can catch plenty of the headline Pokemon.
- Clear out your Pokemon Storage in advance for all the catching you’ll be doing.
- Purchase a ticket from the Shop to unlock the Community Day’s Special Research.
