Niantic Labs, The Pokémon Company

The Pokémon that will be featured for this December's Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO has been revealed. Each Tuesday in December, Pokémon GO players will have one hour in the evening to participate. Starting Dec 6. from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time players can catch the Spotlight Pokémon and receive other bonuses. Here are the scheduled Pokémon and their bonuses for the December Spotlight Hours

What is Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour?

The Spotlight Hour was introduced to Pokémon Go back in February 2020. Since the hourly events increase the spawn rate for specific Pokémon, they have helped many catch Pokémon they have been missing. Even if players already have the Pokémon registered in their Pokédex, the Spotlight Hour is a great opportunity for players to farm candies to potentially evolve Pokémon that they have yet to catch.

Pokémon GO Spotlight Hours: December 2022

  • Dec. 6 - Wooper | 2x Catch Stardust
  • Dec. 13 - Spheal - 2x Catch XP
  • Dec. 20 - Bergmite | 2x Catch Candy
  • Dec. 27 - Cubchoo - | 2x Candy for transferring Pokémon

All the December Spotlight Hour Pokémon have a chance to shiny Pokémon except for Bergmite. With the increased spawn rate of these Pokémon, this is probably the best opportunity for shiny Pokémon hunters. Players will notice that this month's spotlight Pokémon are blue-colored and Ice or Water-type Pokémon. This theming is likely due to the winter season that begins in late December.

The new season titled Mythical Wishes has just kicked off in Pokémon GO. Be sure to stay tuned to other news and events in the game during its ninth season.
