November is still a week away, but it seems that Pokémon Go can’t wait to share what’s going to happen next month to Trainers worldwide. There’s going to be new features and some may even see familiar faces return to raids. 

The first is the Research Breakthrough encounter. It’s going to start on November 1 and last for a month until December 1. In this one, Trainers get to meet the Happiness Pokémon known as Togetic.

Raid Bosses

Throughout the month Trainers get the chance to challenge different Raid Bosses in five-star raids. These are:

  • October 21 at 4:00 PM EDT to November 5 at 4:00 PM EST
    • Raid Boss: Darkrai
  • November 5 at 4:00 PM EST to November 16 at 4:00 PM EST
    • Raid Boss: Prepare to see a familiar Pokémon
  • November 16 at 4:00 PM EST to November 24 at 4:00 PM EST
    • Raid Boss: Terrakion, Cobalion, and Virizion
  • November 24 at 4:00 PM EST to November 30 at 4:00 PM EST
    • Raid Boss: To be Announced

Spotlight Hours

Pokémon Spotlight Hour is going to take place each Tuesday in November and will happen at 6:00 PM, local time. There’s going to be a different Pokémon and special bonus each time. These are:

  • November 3
    • Pokémon: Cubone
    • Bonus: Earn twice the Stardust for catching Pokémon.
  • November 10
    • Pokémon: Jigglypuff
    • Bonus: Earn twice the XP for catching Pokémon.
  • November 17
    • Pokémon: Meowth
    • Bonus: Earn twice the Candy for catching Pokémon.
  • November 24
    • Pokémon: Barboach
    • Bonus: Earn twice the Candy for transferring Pokémon.

In addition, there’s also going to be a Limited Research event which is happening on November 28. The featured Pokémon for this is going to be announced at a later date.

Feature Updates

The Pokémon Go Team revealed in a post that it won’t be long until Trainers get to see additional information on the Pokémon that they’ve come to know and love. For example, if a Pokémon hatched from an Egg, Trainers get to see which type of Egg it hatched from. For those who managed to catch a Pokémon in an encounter after a raid, they’ll be able to see more details on that raid. Overall, the Team said that with this update, Trainers, along with their Pokémon, can “take a stroll down memory lane together and reminisce on the happy memories of [their] meeting”

There’s also going to be an update where Trainers will receive Special Research lines released in the past so that it is not overwhelming for new Trainers. There’s no question that there’s a lot to look forward to in November. Are you excited as we are?
