Pokémon Go: Turtwig Spotlight Hour Guide – Shiny Turtwig, Schedule, and Bonuses
Turtwig in plenty this November in Pokémon GO.
Turtwig is the first Sinnoh starter to earn its own Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO, ahead of the release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl later this month. This event means you’ll be able to discover an excess of Grass-type creatures to load up on Turtwig sweets and take advantage of the event’s 2x Stardust increase.
In Pokémon GO, when is Turtwig Spotlight Hour?
The Turtwig Spotlight Hour will take place on Tuesday, November 16, from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM local time. The world of Pokémon GO will be brimming with Grass-type starters throughout this time period, making it the ideal time to collect them all and make your perfect Torterra. The fully evolved Grass/Ground-type is a powerful performer in the Great League, making it a must-have for any dedicated trainer.
Stock up on Razz Berries, Pinap Berries, and, of course, Pokéballs prior to the Spotlight Hour to avoid wasting time searching for things. Between this event and the upcoming Chimchar community day, there will be a whole week to replenish your consumables.
Can Turtwig be Shiny in Pokémon Go?
On November 16, Shiny Turtwig will be accessible during the Spotlight Hour. While getting a Shiny is not guaranteed, unlike earlier Spotlight Hour events, the rise in Turtwig spawns does boost your chances of finding one. Interact with every Turtwig you come across on the map to increase your chances.
If you’re shiny hunting, it’s worthwhile to use an Incense in addition to the previously stated goods to enhance your chances of seeing a Shiny Turtwig even further. Naturally, this also applies to the upcoming Chimchar and Piplup events, making November an ideal time for Shiny hunters eager to add fourth-generation starters to their collection.
That is all you need to know about catching Turtwig during the upcoming Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO.
