There are five exciting Spotlight Hour events for Pokemon GO players to look forward to in January 2024!

Pokemon GO holds a Spotlight Hour event every week, firmly putting the focus on one particular Pokemon.

During these events, the featured Pokemon spawns much more frequently, and there is also a handy in-game bonus for trainers to make the most of.

The Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours in January 2024 are happening every Tuesday of the month from 6 PM to 7 PM local time. These are the dates and featured Pokemon for each of these Spotlight Hours:

  • January 2: Castform
  • January 9: Eevee
  • January 16: Ralts
  • January 23: Barboach
  • January 30: Foongus

Pokemon GO shiny hunters will be happy with the January 2024 Spotlight Hours, as all of the featured Pokemon can be shiny.

Even if the shiny odds won’t be boosted in the Spotlight Hours, the sheer number of featured Pokemon spawning will hopefully help you find the shiny version!
