Spotlight Hour Spawn Rate & Shiny Rate
With Incense and Lures, you’ll have lots of chances to catch each Spotlight Hour Pokemon during these events. As a result, each Shiny’s spawn rate is increased. Many trainers use Spotlight Hours to complete their Shiny collection, so take advantage of this opportunity!
How to prepare for Numel Spotlight Hour
Because the Spotlight Hours are only 60 minutes long, you can prepare ahead of time to avoid wasting time. Aim for many Spotlight Hour Pokemon with enough Poke Balls. Use Berries to quadruple Candy or make capturing easier. Get ready to fill up your Pokemon Storage Box. Buy an Incense for the event using your PokeCoins. Along with these tricks, you can utilize Lucky Eggs or Star Pieces to boost your XP gains during the Spotlight Hours event.
