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!
