The star of this week’s Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour is the Water-type Feebas!

The Pokemon GO Feebas Spotlight Hour is taking place from 6 PM to 7 PM local time on Tuesday, December 5, 2023.

For this hour, Feebas will be spawning in the wild much more frequently, making it the perfect time to farm Candy, or maybe even catch the shiny version!

In addition to this, there is a great in-game bonus that will be active during the Spotlight Hour that every Pokemon GO player should take advantage of!

Can You Catch Shiny Feebas in the December 5 Spotlight Hour?

Yes, if you are lucky, you can catch the shiny version of Feebas during the December 5 Feebas Spotlight Hour event. However, it is extremely rare.

The odds of any Feebas you encounter in Pokemon GO being shiny are 0.2%, or 1 in 500. Therefore, on average, you’ll need to encounter 500 Feebas before you find the shiny version.

Unlike the standard light brown and blue Feebas, shiny Feebas is purple with grey fins.

December 5 Spotlight Hour Bonus

The bonus for the December 5 Spotlight Hour is 2x Candy for catching Pokemon.

This bonus is especially useful for the Feebas Spotlight Hour as it takes 100 Feebas Candy (plus walking 20km with it as your Buddy) to evolve Feebas into Milotic!
