November Events

There’s still a lot of events for Trainers to take part in this month. There’s the City Spotlight initiative, which is on November 22. However, this is only limited to four cities for now. Learn more about that here.

If you weren’t able to take part in the Community Day last weekend, don’t worry. There’s actually two Community Days in November. The second one is happening this Saturday, November 21. Read more about that here.
