November Community Day 2021 features Shinx. Shinx will be taking centre stage along with a great deal of bonus incentives on this special day including Luxray (Shinx’s final Evolution), learning a never before seen Charge Move as its exclusive move.
Shinx has only been available in Tier-1 raids in the past which has made it a considerably rare shiny. Trainers will now be able to catch Shinx in the wild for the first time on this Community Day.

Special Bonuses 🍬
To celebrate the last Community Day event of the year before the annual big December Community Day 2021 event, two additional bonuses will be available during November Community Day 2021:
- 3× Transfer Candy and
- 4× chance of earning Candy XL when transferring Pokémon.
The best way to take advantage of these bonuses would be to start stocking up on 10 and 12km Eggs prior to this event in order to be able to hatch them quickly on the day (don’t forget your Star Piece!).
These are some amazing special bonuses that you will NOT want to miss out on. 3x Transfer Candy and 4x chance of earning Candy XL for transferring is an unmissable opportunity for each type of player. Many Trainers will be salivating over the chance to stock up on Candy XL which can normally be difficult to obtain.
Mass transferring Legendary Pokémon on this Community Day will be a great way to finally power up and potentially max out their favourite Legendaries for any sort of situation whether it be for Raids, Rocket Grunts/Leaders and PvP.
Exclusive move: Psychic Fangs
Evolve Luxio (Shinx’s Evolution) during the event or up to two hours afterward to get a Luxray that knows the Charged Attack Psychic Fangs Psychic.
Making its Pokémon GO debut, this Charged Attack will allow Luxray to lower the Defense of opposing Pokémon and inflict supereffective damage on Fighting and Poison type Pokémon.
- Trainer Battles: 40 Power and guaranteed to lower the opposing Pokémon’s Defense.
- Gyms and raids: 30 Power
This brand new move will give Luxray more versatility in PvP. It’s currently more of a spice pick rather than a meta Pokémon in the Great League, this won’t change that fact, however, having access to this new Charge Move will give it more play in a predominantly Poison type meta.

Shinx IV chart
All and all, this Community Day is looking to be a big one! with honourable mentions being the new exclusive move Psychic Fangs on Luxray, 1/4 hatch distance for Eggs, 3x Transfer Candy, 4x chance for earning Candy XL for transferring Pokémon and being able to catch an amazing looking shiny!
This is surely an event not to be missed. Preparing for this event will be key. Before Community Day starts, every trainer should do some preparation. The two most important, in-game preparations are: Clearing Box Space and Having Ample Items. First, it is important to clear up some space in your Pokébox. The more space cleared out, the less transferring that has to be done on the spot during the event.
Until next time, Trainers.
Stay safe and happy hunting!
