August 2023 features five Spotlight Hours in Pokemon GO, each with a different featured Pokemon spawning more often and an event bonus, such as double XP Stardust or Candy when evolving, catching, or transferring Pokemon. Here’s a full rundown of everything to expect this month!
The five Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours in August 2023 take place every Tuesday from 6 PM to 7 PM local time – here are the featured Pokemon and event bonuses for all of them:
Every Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour in August 2023
|Date||Featured Pokemon||Event Bonus||Shiny Available?|
|August 1||Vulpix||2x XP for evolving Pokemon||Yes|
|August 8||Paras||2x Stardust for catching Pokemon||Yes|
|August 15||Stufful||2x XP for catching Pokemon||Yes|
|August 22||Venonat||2x Candy for catching Pokemon||Yes|
|August 29||Tentacool||2x Candy for transferring Pokemon||Yes|
Another great thing about the August 2023 Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours is that the shiny version of every one of the featured Pokemon will be available to catch.
While the shiny odds are not boosted in Spotlight Hours events, the greatly increased spawns for the featured Pokemon make Spotlight Hours the perfect time to catch a particular shiny. After all, the more of a Pokemon you encounter, the more likely you are to find the shiny version!
If there is one Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour you certainly won’t want to miss this month, it is the one on August 15, featuring Stufful. This is because it requires a whopping 400 Candy to evolve Stufful into Bewear, and it also has a great shiny version, which is gold!
