Pokemon Go February 9 Spotlight Hour: Everything You Need to Know
Watch out for Shiny Miltank!
Trainers, Pokemon Go’s next Spotlight Hour event will take place on February 9 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time.
During this one-hour event, Miltank will appear more frequently than normal in the wild, and you’ll receive two times the normal amount of Stardust when catching Pokemon. This Stardust bonus will apply to every Pokemon you capture during this Spotlight Hour event, and not just Miltank.
Miltank is a Normal-type Pokemon from the second Generation of the Pokemon universe. It doesn’t have any evolutions. However, Miltank can be Shiny in Pokemon Go (Shiny Miltank is a lovely blue color, rather than pink).
To make the most of this week’s event, remember to activate an Incense to attract more wild Pokemon to your location for a limited time. This will allow you to encounter more Miltank, which gives you more chances to find a Shiny one.
Plus, remember to activate a Star Piece during this event to boost the amount of Stardust you earn even more. (A Star Piece increases the amount of Stardust you earn by 50 percent for 30 minutes.)
Following this week’s Spotlight Hour, there are two more of these events still to come in February. On February 16 (during Pokemon Go’s Valentine’s Day event), Luvdisc will be the featured Pokemon, while Pikachu will be featured on February 23.
