Pokémon Go announced that Trainers have another event to look forward to this November. There’s going to be a Limited Research event that’s set to feature both Nidoran♀ and Nidoran♂.

This event is going to be on November 28 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM, local. During this time, Trainers can perform event-exclusive Field Research tasks. Completing these tasks earns Trainers encounters with the aforementioned Pokémon. Those lucky enough can even encounter the shiny versions for both Nidoran varieties.

Before the Limited Research event even arrives, there’s the Lake Legends event. This one starts on November 24 at 4:00 PM EST and ends on November 30 at 4:00 PM EST. During this event, Legendary Pokémon Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf are going to appear in five-star raids. The actual Pokémon that appears is dependent on where a Trainer is located. Meanwhile, Goldeen is appearing in the wild more often and even hatching from 5 km Eggs.
