Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO has become an annual staple and features one Pokémon. Each Spotlight Hour occurs on Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time. Trainers can expect a featured Pokémon along with a featured bonus. One added bonus is that some of these Pokémon can even feature the shiny variant if it is currently available.
