Shinx will be appearing more frequently in the wild.

Shinx Special Bonuses

Just like during past Community Day, you will be able to enjoy:

6-Hours of Community Day Fun

Rather than the typical 3-hour event, you will get double the hours, double the fun, and double the opportunity to load up on plenty of Shiny Shinx with 1/4 Hatch Distance AND NEW SPECIAL BONUESES! For the first time ever in CD history, there are two additional special bonuses: 3× Transfer Candy and 4× chance of earning Candy XL when transferring Pokémon

3-Hour Incense & Lures

Incense and Lures will last for three hours for the duration of the event.

Flash, Spark, and Gleam! – Special Research

For US$1 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency), you’ll be able to access the Shinx Community Day–exclusive Special Research story, Flash, Spark, and Gleam. Stay tuned for when tickets for the The Bravest Bird Special Research story go live! Tickets are nonrefundable (subject to applicable law and the exceptions set forth in the Terms of Service). Please note that this Special Research will not include an in-game medal.

Community Day Bundle Box!

There’ll be a special one-time purchase November Community Day bundle, featuring an Elite Charged TM, 50 Ultra Balls, 4 Incense, and 5 Star Pieces for 1280 PokéCoins.

Snapshot Surprise!

Make sure to bring your camera with that new Reality Blending, Trainers. On Shinx Community Day, taking Snapshots might reward you with a surprise! If no changes are made, you’ll be photobombed by Shinx up to 5 times, and you might encounter a Shiny Shinx!

Psychic Fang

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.

24K Magic

Shinx receiving its time to shine doesn’t come without controversy. As we all know, it was highly sought after in raids for a long period of time. That being the only way to receive and now it being given away like candy on Halloween, feels like a slap in the face to some Trainers. Then again, those who still don’t have one are sure to be THRILLED! We shall see.

Stay safe everyone and be sure to always follow your local laws and guidelines.
