There are four different Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour events taking place in September 2023. Each of these has a different featured Pokemon and event bonus, such as double XP, Stardust, or Candy for doing actions such as evolving, catching, or transferring Pokemon.
All of the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours in September 2023 take place every Tuesday from 6 PM to 7 PM local time – here are the featured Pokemon and event bonuses for all of them:
|Date||Featured Pokemon||Bonus||Shiny Available?|
|September 5||Wooper||2x XP for evolving Pokemon||Yes|
|September 12||Mankey||2x Candy for catching Pokemon||Yes|
|September 19||Girafarig||2x XP for catching Pokemon||Yes|
|September 26||Growlithe||2x Stardust for evolving Pokemon||Yes|
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!
