Pokemon Go September 13, 2022 Spotlight Hour: Everything You Need to Know

Players can earn bonus experience points for a limited time.

The next Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour event will take place on September 13, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time.

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

Ralts is a Psychic- and Fairy-type Pokemon from the third generation of the Pokemon universe. In Pokemon Go, you can evolve Ralts into Kirlia using 25 Ralts Candy. If Kirlia is female, it can be evolved into Gardevoir using 100 Ralts Candy. If Kirlia is male, it can be evolved into Gardevoir using 100 Ralts Candy, or into Gallade using 100 Ralts Candy and a Sinnoh Stone. You can learn more about evolving Kirlia into Gardevoir or Gallade in Pokemon Go in our guide.

Shiny Ralts is available in Pokemon Go. Shiny Ralts has a blue and orange head, rather than a green and pink head.

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

Also remember that you can activate a Lucky Egg to double the number of experience points you receive 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 catch during this event.

Following this week’s Spotlight Hour event, two more of these events are scheduled to take place in September 2022. Here’s the schedule:

  • September 20 - Aron
  • September 27 - Minccino
