Here are the dates as well as the featured Pokemon and bonuses in every one of the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours for October 2022!

Despite there being hundreds of Pokemon in Pokemon GO, developer Niantic likes to celebrate every one of them. As well as the monthly Community Days, there are also weekly Spotlight Hours that put the focus on one Pokemon in particular.

Spotlight Hours have the featured Pokemon spawn way more often for 60 minutes, which makes it the best time to farm Candy and evolve for that particular Pokemon.

Additionally, there is a global event bonus that every Pokemon trainer can benefit from. These bonuses can include double Candy, Stardust, and XP for doing activities such as catching and transferring Pokemon.

Read our Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours guide for some more detail on the event before you find out which Pokemon will be in the spotlight in October!
