Pokemon Go July 5, 2022 Spotlight Hour: Everything You Need to Know

Players can collect extra experience points for a limited time.

The next Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour event will take place on July 5, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time.

During this event, Ledyba will appear more frequently than normal in the wild, and players will receive two times the normal number of experience points when catching Pokemon.

Ledyba is a Bug- and Flying-type Pokemon from the second generation of the Pokemon universe. In Pokemon Go, you can evolve Ledyba into Ledian using 25 Ledyba Candy.

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 Ledyba to encounter and more chances to potentially find a Shiny one.

In addition, you can activate a Lucky Egg to earn more 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 lots of experience points for each Pokemon you capture during this event.

Following this event, three more Spotlight Hour events are scheduled to take place in July 2022. Here’s the schedule:

  • July 12 - Machop
  • July 19 - Starly
  • July 26 - Meditite
