September 2021 is the start of Pokémon Go’s Season of Mischief, featuring the arrival of the mythical Pokémon Hoopa. For the past few weeks, Hoopa has been causing problems for many characters and players in Pokémon Go. From September to November, players will have the chance to capture Hoopa. But during that time, Spotlight Hours will be appearing every Tuesday for players who want a chance to capture more Pokémon. These events will be happening every Tuesday from 6 PM to 7 PM in your local time zone.
The new Pokémon appearing in the Spotlight Hour events: Spoink, Baltoy, Skitty, and Alolan Meowth. However, August is not completely over yet, and the final Pokémon players can catch Wooloo on August 31.
The Spotlight Hour is when a single Pokémon has a ridiculously high chance to spawn. It usually means you see somewhere from three to nine of them around you without having to visit a particular location. The Spotlight Hour event has a new Pokémon every week on Tuesday for only an hour. The event is open to everyone, but you need to have your Pokémon Go application open from 6 PM to 7 PM in your timezone.
Here are the entire Spotlight Hour dates, times, rewards, and the Pokémon available during the hour.
- September 7: Spoink will be in the spotlight on this date, and all players will be able to earn twice as much Stardust for capturing Pokémon.
- September 14: Baltoy will be in the spotlight, and all players will be able to earn twice the XP for catching Pokémon.
- September 21: Skitty will be in the spotlight, and all players will be earn twice the Candy for catching Pokémon.
- September 28: Alolan Meowth will be in the spotlight, and all players will be able to earn twice the Candy for transferring any Pokémon during the event.
All of these Pokémon are decent choices for the month. In addition, all of these Pokémon have shiny versions, which eager collectors are always happy to hear. So while there will be no increased chance to capture a shiny version, there will be more Pokémon available, giving you more opportunities for one to appear.
