What makes the September 2023 Spotlight Hours so exciting is that all four of the featured Pokemon can be shiny!

Spotlight Hours are the best time to catch the shiny version of the featured Pokemon. Even if the shiny odds are not boosted in these events, the greatly increased spawns mean that you will have dozens of chances to catch the rare shiny version.

Additionally, Spotlight Hours are the perfect time to farm Candy for the featured Pokemon. This is especially handy to evolve or power up the featured Pokemon!

One Spotlight Hour you won’t want to miss is the Wooper Spotlight Hour on September 5. This is because leaks have revealed that Paldean Wooper is coming to Pokemon GO soon!
