Pokémon GO January 2022 Spotlight Hour Schedule
For the first time in 2022, Pokémon GO will feature monthly catch-a-thons called Spotlight Hour. You’ll get 2x Transfer Candy, Catch Candy, or Catch Stardust each week in January thanks to four new Spotlight Hour Pokémon! To teach you the Spotlight Hour Bonus Pokémon, we’ve created this tutorial. For all you Shiny collectors out there, we’ll also detail if these Spotlight Hour Pokémon are available in Shiny form throughout their heightened spawn hour.
January 2022 Spotlight Hour Schedule.
From 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM on the days indicated, the following spotlight hours will take place. Niantic will flood your local streets with Spotlight Hour Pokémon for sixty minutes, regardless of where you are. Let’s get into this month’s Spotlight Hour Pokémon.
4th January, Solosis
As of January 4, 2022, this is the first Spotlight Hour Pokémon. In order to complete your Pokédex, you must have 125 Candy. The professor will reward you with 2x Transfer Candy if you transfer any spare Solosis to him before the hour is up.
Due to the nature of the event, Solosis is the only Pokémon on the lineup, not Shiny. The increased Solosis spawns are still worth exploiting so you have enough Candy to completely evolve and battle-ready your special Pokémon when the Shiny form appears in the wild!
11 January, Diglett
For January’s second Spotlight Hour, Diglett rises from the ashes. In addition to the 2x Catch Stardust benefit, this Ground-type will spawn in large quantities on January 11th. As its development Dugtrio can still punch above its weight in the Great League, it’s recommended grabbing any Diglett you can.
A Shiny Diglett might appear during the sixty minutes of this month’s second Spotlight Hour. You’ll need to keep an eye out for Shiny Diglett’s minor color change.
18th January, Plusle
Catching this Electric-type Pokémon during its Spotlight Hour on January 18th could help you start the year off right. Also obtainable in Shiny form during the event, Plusle is the first of two supercharged mouse Pokémon to arrive in January.
Minun – 25th Jan
Minun is the polar opposite of Plusle in January 2022. You can add both Shiny versions of Plusle and Minun to your roster before the end of the month by catching them during the Spotlight Hour. Also, Professor Minun gladly doubles any Candy for transferred Pokémon.
For January 2022, these are the Spotlight Hour Pokémon. Learn how to power up Pokéstops and get the most out of your in-game goodies with this Niantic AR hit game tutorial! Then read our tips for dealing with the Team Rocket tyrant Giovanni before the month ends.
