Pokémon GO Spotlight Hours for October have been revealed, giving players time to prepare for the events coming later this month. During each Spotlight Hour, the highlighted Pokémon will appear at increased rates.

Niantic introduced Spotlight Hours to Pokémon GO in February 2020, and the events have grown in popularity over the succeeding years. These weekly events offer the chance to fill out the PokéDex, to catch Shiny versions of Pokémon, and to socialize with other trainers.

What is Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour?

Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour takes place most Tuesdays from 6-7 p.m. local time. Near the end of each month, Niantic reveals the timing for all the Spotlight Hours for the coming month. Each Spotlight Hour focuses on a different Pokémon, and typically brings passive bonuses from which players can benefit, from extra experience to candies.
