Pokemon Go May 16, 2023 Spotlight Hour: Everything You Need to Know

Monday, May 15th, 2023 2:55 pm

Players can collect extra Pokemon Candy for a limited time.

The next Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour event will take place on May 16, 2023 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time.

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

Bellsprout is a Grass- and Poison-type Pokemon from the first generation of the Pokemon universe. In Pokemon Go, you can evolve Bellsprout into Weepinbell using 25 Bellsprout Candy and then evolve Weepinbell into Victreebel using 100 Bellsprout Candy.

Shiny Bellsprout is available in Pokemon Go. Shiny Bellsprout has yellow leaves, rather than green leaves.

To make the most of this week’s Spotlight Hour event, remember that you can activate an Incense to attract wild Pokemon to your location for a limited time. This will give you more Bellsprout to encounter and more chances to potentially find a Shiny one.

Following this week’s Spotlight Hour event, two more of these events are scheduled to take place in the month of May 2023. Here’s the schedule:

  • May 23, 2023 – Skorupi (Players will receive two times the normal number of experience points when evolving Pokemon)
  • May 30, 2023 – Houndour (Players will receive two times the normal amount of Stardust when catching Pokemon)
