The start of November means a new series of Spotlight Hour events will be happening in Pokémon Go featuring new Pokémon. There are four events scheduled in October, featuring: Cubone, Jigglypuff, Meowth, and Barboach.
The Spotlight Hour is when a single Pokémon has a ridiculously high chance to spawn, and 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:
- November 3: Cubone, and you can earn twice the Stardust for catching Pokémon during the event.
- November 10: Jigglypuff, and you will earn twice the XP for catching Pokémon during the event.
- November 17: Meowth, and you will earn twice the Candy for catching Pokémon during this event.
- November 24: Barboach, and you will earn twice the Candy for transferring Pokémon during this event.
The first portion of the month features Cubone, which is fun for those who want to evolve it into a Marowak. It likely ties into the Day of the Dead event happening on November 1, but other than that, the Pokémon is not too special of a catch. The same goes for Jiggly, Puff, Meowth, and Barboach.
Through November you can expect to encounter a new five-star raid Pokémon every week starting with Darkrai. After them, you’ll be battling against an unknown Pokémon starting on November 5, and then Tarrakion, Cobalion, and Virizon will be available starting on November. Finally, another, unknown, Pokémon will be appearing from November 24 to the 30. There are a lot of mysterious details here that will unveil as get closer to the actual events.
