Pokemon GO Community Day November 2018 COUNTDOWN: Shiny Cyndaquil, Start Time News Updates (Pic: NIANTIC)
The Pokemon GO Community Day is a massive event in the games monthly calendar, and the next community day is going live this Saturday, bringing with it a whole host of reasons to get out at play the game on iPhone and Android smartphones.
Although Niantic frames the event as the perfect way for trainers to come together and meet up to play the game, it also provides (perhaps more importantly) the chance for trainers to catch some rather unique Pokemon.
In the case of this upcoming November Community Event, players should find a wealth of Cyndaquil spawning, especially in park areas.
But better still, if youre lucky enough to evolve your Cyndaquil into a Quilava and then into a Typhlosion during that three-hour window, it will learn an exclusive move:
"Attention, Trainers! Quilava evolved during November Community Day will learn the powerful Fire-type move Blast Burn, a Pokemon GO Community Day exclusive!" Niantic announced.
For UK based players, Saturday's Community Day event is scheduled to begin at 10am in the UK lasting until 1pm in the afternoon.
This isn't all though because there are additional bonuses in effect during the event, such as Lure Modules which last for three hours during the event, double XP and double stardust.
Which on top of the games existing "Stardust Blast event", means that you'll earn QUADRUPLE stardust rewards during Community Day.
If that's not entirely clear, that means a standard catch could reward you with 400 stardust for every pokemon caught.

Will there be a new shiny?
Niantic NEVER confirms whether or not an event will include a shiny version of the Pokemon headlining a Community Day.
Given that so far every single Pokemon GO Community Day event to date has offered the chance to catch a shiny variant of Pokemon, we think it's pretty nailed on that there will be Shiny Cyndaquil available during the November Community Day.
For those who need reminding, a Shiny will not appear as shiny in the game until you enter the catch screen. Equally, the Pokemon which appear are random for each player.
So just because someone finds a shiny in the wild, it doesn't mean it will also be shiny for you or anyone else playing around you.
In short, keep catching Community Day Pokemon until you happen to find a shiny. It's potluck, but catching as many as possible will increase your chances!
