The next Spotlight Hour for Pokémon GO will feature Oddish, a Grass- and Poison-type Pokémon from the Kanto region.

Spotlight Hour takes place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19, with a different Pokémon as the focus of the event in each iteration. If you catch Oddish during the Spotlight Hour, you will gain 2x Catch Stardust. You may be wondering what else there is to know about this event.

Here's what you need to know about the upcoming Spotlight Hour on April 19, 2022.

Can Oddish be Shiny in Pokémon GO?

There will be a chance that you can spot a shiny Oddish in Pokémon GO during the Spotlight Hour. Shiny Oddish will appear all green in color.

Best Stats/IV for Oddish in Pokémon GO

Oddish's stats are:

  • Maximum CP: 1,228
  • Maximum HP: 113
  • Attack: 131
  • Defense: 112
  • Stamina: 128

You can keep tabs on Oddish's IV by analyzing the difference between its CP total and the maximum CP at each level. Here is a guide for its maximum CP at certain increments:

  • Level 15: 526
  • Level 20: 702
  • Level 30: 1,053
  • Level 40: 1,228

Trainers can evolve their Oddish into Gloom with 25 Candy.

Best Moveset for Gloom in Pokémon GO

Gloom is a Grass- and Poison-type, which is strongest against Fighting- and Water-types and weakest against Flying-, Fire-, Psychic- and Ice-types.

This Pokemon's best moveset includes Acid and Sludge Bomb on offense and Razor Leaf and Sludge Bomb on defense. These movesets have an increased 20% damage due to the Same-Type Attack Bonus (STAB).

Is Gloom Good in Pokémon GO?

Gloom has the following stats:

  • Maximum CP: 1,681
  • Maximum HP: 134
  • Attack: 153
  • Defense: 136
  • Stamina: 155

Gloom definitely has an increase in stats compared to Oddish, as it is Oddish's evolved form. Because of this, it may be worth evolving Oddish into Gloom once you have it in your collection. To get candy and evolve your Oddish, focus on catching as many as you can and walking with it by your side.
