Pokemon Go November Events: Supereffective Week, Terrakion Raids, and Friend Fest
Mark your calendars so you don't miss out on the fun!
We’re already halfway through November, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had this month in Pokemon Go. Niantic, the game’s developer, has revealed three new events that players can look forward to this month.
First, the Supereffective Week event will take place from November 19 at 1 p.m. PT until November 26 at 1 p.m. PT.
During this event, Niantic said, “[Pokemon] that might be strong partners in battle against Team GO Rocket and other Trainers will be appearing more often in the wild, in raids, and in Field Research!” In addition, once this event begins, players will have the chance to encounter Shiny Tentacool.
Finally, during Supereffective Week, players will earn double the normal amount of Stardust when participating in trainer battles, and they’ll receive more Potion and Revive items when visiting PokeStops. Players are also guaranteed to receive a Charged TM each time they win a Tier 3 Raid during this event.
Next, from November 26 at 1 p.m. PT until December 17 at 1 p.m. PT, Terrakion, a Rock- and Fighting-type Legendary Pokemon from Gen V of the Pokemon universe, will be available to challenge in Tier 5 Raids.
Finally, from November 27 at 1 p.m. PT until December 2 at 1 p.m. PT, the Friend Fest event will take place, which will focus on “family-themed” Pokemon. During this time, creatures such as Nidoran (male) and Nidoran (female), their evolutions, and additional themed Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild, and will be available to encounter when completing research tasks.
During Friend Fest, trades will cost half the normal amount of Stardust to perform, and trainers will be able to make two Special Trades each day, rather than one. Finally, you’ll receive an attack boost when you participate in Raids with in-game friends during this event.
