Pokemon Go October 5 Spotlight Hour: Everything You Need to Know
The spookiest time of the year is here!
The first Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour event for October 2021 is set to take place on October 5 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time.
During this event, Drifloon will appear more frequently than normal in the wild and you’ll receive two times the normal number of experience points for evolving Pokemon.
Drifloon is a Ghost- and Flying-type Pokemon from the fourth generation of the Pokemon universe. In Pokemon Go, you can evolve Drifloon into Drifblim using 50 Drifloon Candy.
Shiny Drifloon is available in Pokemon Go.
To make the most of this week’s event, remember that you can activate an Incense to attract wild Pokemon to your location for a limited time. This will give you more Drifloon to encounter and more chances to potentially encounter a Shiny one.
Plus, if you have lots of Pokemon that you plan to evolve during this event, you may want to activate a Lucky Egg before doing so. This Lucky Egg bonus will allow you to earn double the normal number of experience points for completing in-game actions for a limited time. The Lucky Egg bonus will stack with the Spotlight Hour bonus, allowing you to earn even more experience points for each Pokemon you evolve during the Spotlight Hour event.
Following this week’s Spotlight Hour, there are three more of these events to look forward to in October 2021. Here’s the schedule:
- October 12 - Gastly
- October 19 - Gothita
- October 26 - Murkrow
