Pokemon Go August 16, 2022 Spotlight Hour: Everything You Need to Know

Monday, August 15th, 2022 8:21 am

Players can earn lots of Pokemon Candy for a limited time.

The next Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour event will take place on August 16, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time.

During this event, Joltik will appear more frequently than normal in the wild and players will receive two times the normal number of Pokemon Candy when catching Pokemon.

Joltik is a Bug- and Electric-Type Pokemon from the fifth generation of the Pokemon universe. In Pokemon Go, you can evolve Joltik into Galvantula using 50 Joltik Candy.

As of this writing, Shiny Joltik is not available in Pokemon Go.

To make the most of this week’s event, remember that you can toss Pinap Berries at Pokemon to double the number of Pokemon Candy you’ll receive when you catch them. The Pinap Berry bonus will stack with the Spotlight Hour bonus, allowing you to earn lots of Pokemon Candy for each Pokemon you capture during this event.

Following this week’s Spotlight Hour event, two more of these events are scheduled to take place before the end of August 2022. Nidoran♂ will be featured during the Spotlight Hour event on August 23, and Pidove will be featured during the Spotlight Hour event on August 30.
