Spotlight Hour Tips

Because the Spotlight Hours is just one hour long, there are a few ways you could do beforehand so you don’t miss a minute!

Free up space in your Pokemon Storage Box for those Pokemon you’ll capture.
For the session, save enough Pokecoins and carry at least 2 Incense sticks.
Make certain you have a sufficient number of Poke Balls on hand.
Check to see if you possess adequate Berries to get 2x Candy or to find catching smoother.

Every Shiny variation’s spawn rate is also boosted. Countless players use Spotlight Hours to complete their Shiny catalog, and now is your opportunity to do so as well!

Along with these suggestions, Spotlight Hours are a great time to use any extra items you may have, such as Lucky Eggs or Star Pieces, to boost your XP during the Spotlight Hour.
