To get the most out 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 gives you more of the featured Pokemon you encounter and more chances to potentially find a Shiny.

Following this week’s Spotlight Hour event, three more of these events will take place in May 2024. This is the schedule:

  • May 14, 2024 – Abra will appear in the wild more often than usual and players will receive twice the normal amount of experience points when evolving Pokemon.
  • May 21, 2024 – Elgyem will appear in the wild more often than usual, and players will receive twice the normal amount of Stardust when they catch Pokemon.
  • May 28, 2024 – Mareanie will appear in the wild more often than usual, and players will receive twice the normal amount of experience points when catching Pokemon.
