Niantic has announced the Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour schedule for June 2022. With Mantine, Spinarak, and Pikachu all making enhanced appearances, there’s plenty to look forward to.
The Spotlight Hour is one of the weekly events hosted by Niantic in Pokemon Go. Each week, a different Pokémon takes the spotlight, offering greatly increased spawn rates and a special double bonus.
For an hour, Trainers have the opportunity to catch as many of that particular species as possible, providing the perfect opportunity to fill out their Pokedex and earn enough Candy to evolve and power up that Pokémon.
In addition to these Spotlight Hours, a Community Day with Deino took place on June 25th. All of these events are designed to give Trainers the opportunity to compete, evolve, and compete with the community.
Here’s everything you need to know about the June 2022 Spotlight Hour schedule.

Here’s how to prepare for the Pikachu Spotlight Hour in Pokemon Go
With Spotlight lessons only lasting 60 minutes, there are a number of things you can do ahead of time to ensure you don’t waste valuable time:
- Make sure you have enough poke balls to catch multiple Spotlight Hour Pokémon.
- Make sure you have enough Berry to get double candies or to make catching easier.
- Clean up yours Pokemon storage box to make room for all the Pokemon you will catch.
- Save up your PokeCoins and buy one incense For the event.
Alongside these tips, Spotlight Hours are the perfect opportunity to use substitute items like Lucky Eggs or Star Pieces to increase the XP you earn during the event.
Spotlight Hour Spawn Rate and Shiny Rate
Each Spotlight Hour Pokemon’s spawn rate is boosted for 60 minutes during these events, meaning you’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch each species, especially if you’re using Incense and Bait.
This will also increase the spawn rate of each Shiny variant. Many Trainers use Spotlight Hours to complete their Shiny collection, so this is the perfect opportunity for you to do the same!
This is especially useful now that Niantic has introduced new Pokedex classifications to show your Shiny, Lucky, Event, and more Pokemon variants.
