Pokemon Go Supereffective Week Event Begins Today, Features New Shiny Pokemon

Pokemon Go‘s November Community Day has come and gone, but Niantic still has a few events lined up for the hit Pokemon mobile game this month. That begins with Supereffective Week, which kicks off today, November 19, and introduces a new Shiny Pokemon to catch.

From now until November 26, you’ll be able to find Pokemon that are effective against Team Rocket and other trainers more often in the wild, as well as in Raid Battles and through Field Research tasks. On top of that, you’ll receive twice the normal amount of Stardust from trainer battles, and PokeStops will distribute more Potions and Revives than usual. Finally, you’ll have your first chance to encounter Shiny Tentacool in the wild.

Following Supereffective Week, a new Legendary Pokemon, Terrakion, will make its debut in Pokemon Go. The second member of the Swords of Justice trio is set to appear in five-star Raid Battles beginning November 26, replacing the current Legendary, Cobalion. Terrakion will be available in Raids until December 17.

Before November comes to an end, Niantic is also holding Pokemon Go’s first-ever Friend Fest. That event runs from November 27 to December 2, and during that time, “family-themed Pokemon” such as Nidoran and their evolutions will appear more often in the wild. On top of that, trading Pokemon with friends will require half the usual amount of Stardust, and you’ll be able to make two special trades per day. You can read more details about this month’s Pokemon Go events on the game’s official website.

In other Pokemon news, the series’ latest mainline games, Pokemon Sword and Shield, launched on Nintendo Switch last week, and to celebrate their release, Galarian Weezing recently made its debut in Pokemon Go. The Galarian Pokemon appeared for a special Raid Hour immediately following November’s Community Day, and while that event has ended, it can still periodically be found in four-star Raids. Additionally, Niantic has added new avatar items based on the default trainer outfits from Sword and Shield to the Style Shop.
