Chinchou is the latest Pokemon to be featured in the weekly Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour event!
The Chinchou Spotlight Hour will be taking place from 6 PM to 7 PM local time on November 7, 2023. For the duration of this event, Chinchou will be spawning much more frequently in the wild.
What’s more, there will be a great in-game bonus, and the opportunity to catch the shiny version of Chinchou!
Can You Catch Shiny Chinchou in the November 7 Spotlight Hour?
Yes, you can catch the shiny version of Chinchou during the November 7 Spotlight Hour event in Pokemon GO, but it is extremely rare.
The odds of Chinchou being shiny in Pokemon GO are 0.2%, meaning that just one in 500 Chinchou you encounter will be shiny.
You will also need to look quite closely as the shiny version of Chinchou looks very similar to the standard Chinchou. Shiny Chinchou is a slightly lighter blue and has bright green eyes and antennae instead of the standard yellow.
November 7 Spotlight Hour Bonus
The bonus for the November 7 Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour featuring Chinchou is 2x Candy for transferring Pokemon. This means that you will get 2 Candy every time you transfer a Pokemon instead of the usual 1.
To make the most of this bonus, hold on to any Pokemon that you want to transfer until the November 7 Spotlight Hour begins. Then, you can transfer them during the Spotlight Hour to get double the amount of Candy!
