Pokemon GO Staryu Spotlight Hour Date & Time – July 19

Every Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour takes place on Tuesdays from 6 PM – 7 PM local time. The Staryu Spotlight will be on July 19 at this time.

For the duration of the hour, Staryu spawns will be much more common. This means evolving Staryu into Starmie will be much easier, plus this will be your best chance of catching a 4* perfect Staryu!

Just make sure you know how to use the new IV filter to search for Pokemon. This makes sorting through them all much easier!

Additionally, the event bonus for Staryu Spotlight Hour is 2x Candy for transferring Pokemon. This might be the best bonus out of any Spotlight Hour so you’ll want to keep any Pokemon you want to transfer until then if you can.
