Pokémon Go event – November Community Days

A list of each upcoming Pokémon Go event to help you take advantage of them

October 28, 2020: November Community Days featuring Magmar and Electabuzz are coming to Pokémon Go.

Pokémon Go event is a regular occurrence these days, with something new happening pretty much every week. If you’re a big fan of the location-based monster collector, then there’s very little reason to ever not be playing, whether it’s participating in Raid Hour, Community Day, Go Fest 2020, or the smaller events that take place in between.

Now, while this is a positive, as you’ve always got something to do to keep you busy, there’s a downside to it as well, as it’s really difficult to keep on top of everything that’s happening to Pokémon Go in any given moment. But that’s where we come in. We want to make your life much easier by providing a nice, chronological list of each upcoming Pokémon Go event you can participate in.

So please find that below. We also keep a list of the most recent Pokémon Go news, every single recent Pokémon Go update, so you can check the latest patch notes at a glance, and we’ve put together a complete Pokémon Go raids guide, which will help when it comes to participating in Raid Hours.
