Special Community Day event next weekend in Pokémon GO

This is basically the December Community Day event for the year.

Niantic have just announced that all previously featured Pokémon species for Community Day events will feature across the following weekend in Pokémon GO. Hopefully they will all appear with boosted Shiny rates as well, although this has not been confirmed yet.

In order to celebrate a fantastic year of Community Days, every Pokémon species featured during these events will appear in the wild again, all around the world, for a special weekend-long event, from Friday, November 30, at 1 p.m. PST to Sunday, December 2, at 11 p.m. PST. All of the featured moves from each Community Day will also be available, so your evolved Pokémon can get them! Additionally, special bonuses will be available for just three hours in each region.

If you forgot, the Pokémon that featured during Community Day were Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Charmander, Eevee, Dratini, Mareep, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Larvitar, and Beldum. The special bonus period and effects are as follows:
