This week's Spotlight Hour will showcase three different Pokemon instead of one; Caterpie, Weedle, and Wurmple. Several other bonuses will be offered in addition to this.

Each of these three Pokemon have two further evolutions. For all three Pokemon, it will require 12 Candy to evolve them into their first evolution, then another 50 Candy to evolve them into their final evolution.

Candy for a specific Pokemon line can be acquired by catching, hatching, or transferring them.

Also, as with any Spotlight Hour, this is a great chance to catch featured Pokemon with high in-game stats. Although these Pokemon's stats are still random when caught, the sheer number of encounters will give you a greater opportunity to catch one with desirable stats.

Spotlight Hour Bonuses

A specific bonus will accompany each Spotlight Hour throughout its duration, and this week's will be no different. For this Spotlight Hour, you will receive two times the Stardust when catching any Pokemon.

With the massive increase in Pokemon spawns during this event window, this is a great opportunity to catch several of these Pokemon, providing you with tons of Stardust, a valuable resource used to evolve and power-up different Pokemon.

To maximize this double catch Stardust bonus, it is best if you are in an area populated with plenty of PokeStops. This will not only increase the amount of Pokemon that you encounter, but it will also allow you to constantly obtain Poke Balls and other resources.

Spotlight Hour Spawn Rates And Shiny Rates

The main bonus of this Spotlight Hour will be the featured Pokemon's massively increased spawn rate during this event. The spawn rate of these Pokemon can be increased further by using both PokeStop Lures and Incense.

After using an Incense, do your best to move around and travel distance.

This will increase the overall effectiveness of Incense, providing you with even more Pokemon encounters.

Fortunately, you will have the chance to encounter all three Pokemon's Shiny variations during this Spotlight Hour Event. Using these two items will help increase the odds of you encountering and catching these unique Pokemon variants.

Similar to Community Day Events, the increased spawn rate these Pokemon will give you decent odds of finding and catching these Shiny Pokemon, so make sure that you prepare accordingly when it comes to your items and specific locations.

That being said , these Pokemon's Shiny rates will not be boosted for this Spotlight Hour.

This means that encountering a Shiny Pokemon will still be rare and often hard to come by.

How To Prepare For Spotlight Hours

With such a short window, ensuring that you are prepared for this event before its commencement is important. With the massive increase in the featured Pokemon's spawn rate, make sure you are stocked up on Poke Balls.

You will also want to ensure that you have sufficient Pokemon Storage before this event begins. This will allow you to quickly catch the featured Pokemon without worrying about transferring others to make space.

You can also increase your Pokemon Storage by 50 by purchasing a Pokemon Storage Upgrade at the in-game shop for 200 PokeCoins.

With the bonus of this Spotlight Hour being double Stardust for catching any Pokemon, stocking up on Poke Balls and having sufficient storage is especially important.

You will also want to use the Star Piece item before catching Pokemon during this Spotlight Hour. This item will increase the Stardust that you earn by 50 percent for 30 minutes, stacking on top of the double catch Stardust bonus for this Spotlight Hour.

Lastly, with with all three of the featured Pokemon being Bug-type Pokemon, Mega Evolve a Pokemon that is a Bug-type during this Spotlight Hour. This will further increase the number of Candies earned when catching Caterpie, Weedle, and Wurmple throughout this event.

Additionally, this will increase the chances of obtaining Candy XL, a resource required to power-up Pokemon to their maximum levels.

The higher the Mega Evolution's Mega Level is, the more effective this added Candy bonus will be.
