In addition to a load of Shuppet spawns during the Spotlight Hour, there is an event bonus for Pokemon trainers to enjoy as well as an extra surprise!
Before you find out all of the details, check out our Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour guide. This will tell you everything you need to know about the weekly event.
Pokemon GO Shuppet Spotlight Hour Date & Time
The Pokemon GO Shuppet Spotlight Hour is from 6 PM – 7 PM local time on Tuesday, October 25, 2022.
For the duration of this event, the number of Shuppet spawning in the wild will be greatly increased. You can already catch them as part of the Pokemon GO Halloween event, but there will be plenty more spawning during the Spotlight hour.
This makes it the perfect time to evolve Shuppet into Banette. Then, all you need to earn some Banette Mega Energy to turn it into the brand-new Mega Banette!
October 25 Spotlight Hour Bonus
The bonus for the Shuppet Spotlight Hour is 2x XP for evolving Pokemon and there will also be a chance to catch Zorua at the beginning and end of the event.
Firstly, if you want to level up, you should save any Pokemon you want to evolve until the Spotlight Hour.
Additionally, for the first and last 5 minutes of the Spotlight Hour, your current Buddy Pokemon will appear on the map. However, when you catch it, it will turn into Zorua instead.
This is the only way to catch Zorua in Pokemon GO right now so make sure you don’t miss out!
Make sure you find out how to boost the Candy you earn in Pokemon GO before the Spotlight Hour! This will let you evolve Zorua into Zoroark.
Can You Catch Shiny Shuppet in Pokemon GO?
Yes, it is possible to catch a shiny Shuppet in Pokemon GO. What’s more, the best time to get one is during the October 25 Spotlight Hour as there will be loads of Shuppet spawns.
While the chances of finding a shiny Shuppet are still very low, you’ll want to encounter as many as possible so that you can hopefully find one. Instead of its normal blue, shiny Shuppet is teal, making it easy to spot.
Here are the exact odds of finding a shiny Shuppet in Pokemon GO.
