Are you interested in Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour this week? We’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Spotlight Hour on Sept. 20.

What is Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour?

Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour is a feature that takes place almost every Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., local time. All Spotlight Hours for a specific month are announced by Niantic Labs the week before. These can be found by visiting the official Pokémon GO news blog or by checking in on trusted news sources.

Each Spotlight Hour features a different Pokémon from the last and typically comes with a passive bonus such as extra XP or candies.

Who is the Next Spotlight Hour Pokemon?

Aron is the next Spotlight Hour Pokémon — taking over the feature on Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Aron is a dual-type Steel/RockPokémon introduced in Generation III. For 25 Candy, it can evolve into Lairon which evolves into Aggron for 100 candies.

During the Aron Spotlight Hour, players will earn double candy from catching Pokémon.

Can Aron Be Shiny?

Yes, Aron can be shiny, which means that its evolutions Lairon and Aggron can also be shiny.

Is Aron Spotlight Hour Worth It?

Although Aron isn't the most exciting Pokémon in the game, most Spotlight Hours are worth participating in for the chance to pick up shiny versions of the Pokémon at their center.

It's also a good opportunity to pick up some extra candy from catching Pokémon other than Aron.
