What you need to know

  • Supereffective Week will run November 19, 2019 through November 26.
  • Terrakion will take over Legendary Raids from November 26, 2019 through December 17.
  • Friend Fest will begin on November 27, 2019 and run through December 2.

With two weeks almost finished in November, Niantic announced three more events to finish off the month and get December off to a great start. While each of these events is relatively low-key in comparison to the Team Go Rocket Looming in the Shadows event or the Halloween event, all three happening in a relatively short span of time will give players plenty to do in the coming weeks.

The first of these events will be the Supereffective Week. Beginning at 1 PM PST Tuesday, November 19 and running for an entire week, Pokémon that are strong partners to use in battles with Team Go Rocket will spawn more in the wild, show up in more Raids and even be featured in Field Research. Shiny Tentacool will also be introduced to the game and have its numbers ramped up for the week. Bonuses will include:

  • 2x Stardust from Trainer Battles
  • More Potions and Revives from Pokéstops
  • Guaranteed Charged TM from three star Raids

Then, from November 26 through December 17, Terrakion will be taking over Legendary Raids. The second of the Swords of Justice, Terrakion will be taking Cobalion's place so if you haven't captured a Cobalion yet, you have a couple more weeks to do so.

Last, but certainly not least, from November 27 through December 2 will be Friend Fest. During this mini-event, players will encounter "family-themed" Pokémon like the Nido lines in the wild and as Research rewards. Bonuses will include:

  • 1/2 Stardust trade cost
  • 2x Special Trades per day
  • Additional Attack Boost when Raiding with Friends

Sounds like November is going out with a bang! Be sure to check out our other Pokémon Go Guides and drop us a comment letting us know what you think of this trio of events coming soon to Pokémon Go.
