Spotlight Hours are time-limited events in Pokémon GO during which a particular Pokémon appears significantly more often for an hour, and this year’s month of July offers a colorful roster of unique pocket monsters. Furthermore, these events are an opportunity for Trainers to potentially discover and catch the Shiny version of the featured Pokémon. Typically, Shiny Pokémon are extremely rare to find, but Spotlight Hours offer a chance for anyone to get a Shiny. Spotlight Hours in Pokémon GO occur every Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time, and while the first event for July 2022 has already passed, there are three more Pokémon for Trainers to anticipate.
Every Pokémon For July 2022 Spotlight Hours In Pokémon GO
For July 2022, Pokémon GO will feature Ledyba, Machop, Staryu, and Meditite, including their Shiny versions. As mentioned above, Ledyba’s Spotlight event has already passed on July 5, but the remaining three will be featured on the upcoming Tuesdays of this month. Accordingly, Trainers must log into the game from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. during Spotlight Hour.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to redo a Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO once it has finished since it is a live event. Therefore, players must log into the game and catch the featured Pokémon if they aim to capture the creature in bulk or attempt to encounter its Shiny variant.
