November 2021’s Pokemon Go Community Day features Electric-type, Shinx. And if you’re lucky, you may even encounter a Shiny one.

Once a month, the hit mobile title highlights one Pokemon for a special Community Day. With Special Research, bonuses, increased spawn rates, and more, it is one of most popular events in the game.

Niantic has revealed that November’s spotlight ‘mon is the Sinnoh region’s Shinx. Not only can you bag yourself a Shiny version, but when evolved into Luxray, it learns an exclusive move.

Here’s what you need to know to prepare for the November 2021 Community Day.



Pokemon Go November Community Day start date & time

Pokemon Go’s November Community day takes place on Sunday, November 21, 2021, at 11 AM local time. It runs until 5 PM the very same day.

Can Shinx be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

Shiny Shinx is yellow instead of blue.

Yes – you can get a Shiny Shinx during the November Community Day. You can also obtain a Shiny Luxray too if you evolve it from Shinx’s first evolution, Luxio.

Unlike other recent Community Days, this isn’t Shinx’s Shiny debut. In fact, it’s been available since 2018.

If you evolve Luxio into Luxray during, or up to two hours after, the November Community Day, it will learn the exclusive move, Psychic Fangs.

The Charged Attack is a Psychic-type move that lowers the foe’s Defense. It is also super effective against Poison and Fighting-type Pokemon.
