Pokemon Go February 18 Spotlight Hour: Everything You Need to Know
Get ready, trainers. A special one-hour event is happening soon.
At the beginning of February 2020, Niantic, Pokemon Go’s developer, revealed a new experimental event called the “Pokemon Spotlight Hour” that would be taking place on February 4.
During this Pokemon Spotlight Hour event, Onix appeared more frequently in the wild for a very limited time (only 60 minutes).
Since then, this event has turned into a weekly occurrence. The February 11 event featured Spoink, and now a third event will take place on Tuesday, February 18.
As reported by Eurogamer, this week’s event will work differently than the previous two. Instead of focusing on a specific Pokemon, the February 18 Pokemon Spotlight Hour will simply cause more Pokemon to spawn than normal for a limited time.
The February 18 event will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time, so we don’t have much time to prepare.
To make the most of this event, we recommend visiting places that have lots of PokeStops in a small area. In theory, these areas already have lots of spawns on a normal day (when compared to other locations), so this event should increase those spawns even more.
