Pokémon GO begins the new year with their January 2022 Spotlight Hour event.

Every Tuesday throughout the month of January, Pokémon Go players can go out and participate for awesome rewards such as 2x Transfer Candy, Catch Candy, and more!

Below, you can find a guide of when the Spotlight Hours will begin, what days, the bonuses, and Pokémon available.

Pokémon Spotlight Hours January 2022

Each Spotlight Hour will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time, meaning no matter where the player is located, it will take place in their device's timezone.

Check out each Pokémon that will be available throughout the month of January below.

  • January 4th, 2022: Solosis Spotlight Hour and double Transfer Candy
  • January 11th, 2022: Diglett Spotlight Hour and double Catch Stardust (Shiny Available)
  • January 18th, 2022: Plusle Spotlight Hour and double Catch Candy (Shiny Available)
  • January 25th, 2022: Minun Spotlight Hour and double Transfer Candy (Shiny Available)

Unfortunately for players, no XP bonus will be available during January, but with a total of 3 out of 5 Shiny versions of the Pokémon to catch, it seems like a pretty good trade-off for fans.

Make sure to log into Pokémon Go to have a chance at getting any of these Pokémon or their Shiny variants.

All the bonuses listed above are also available for every type of Pokémon, not just the ones specially available this month.
