Pokémon GO September Spotlight Hours

This September will see four different Spotlight Hours every week for players to take part of, each featuring a different Pokemon and increased amounts of Stardust, XP, and Candy to obtain. Here are the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours, who they feature, and when they occur.

Spotlight Hours in Pokemon GO follow a simple premise: it’s an hour featuring a Pokemon, and during that hour, there’s increased encounter rates of that Pokemon alongside some kind of bonus for capturing Pokemon. Usually, they’d feature a rare Pokemon, and players are always delighted at the choices, taking the opportunity to gather a lot of candies.

September will shine the spotlight on four different Pokemon every Tuesday, so here are the Pokemon, their times, and their bonuses:

  • September 7, 2021 - Spoink will be in the spotlight, and you’ll earn twice the Stardust for catching Pokémon.
  • September 14, 2021 - Baltoy will be in the spotlight, and you’ll earn twice the XP for catching Pokémon.

  • September 28, 2021 - Alolan Meowth will be in the spotlight, and you’ll earn twice the Candy for transferring Pokémon.

All days listed will have their Spotlight Hours occur from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in accordance to the player’s local time zone. 

September will already see quite a few events for players to engage in. The Season of Mischief event is already slated to begin this September and last until December, bringing with it a rotation of different Pokemon and a change to capture Hoopa itself for players able to complete the Special Research Story in time.

The first Spotlight Hour featuring Spoink will begin on Sep. 7 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., according to the player’s time zone.
