Pokemon GO is known for hosting many different events on its mobile app platform, constantly giving players something new and exciting to look forward to each month. In some cases, players will have new things to do each week. Every Tuesday, Pokemon GO hosts what is called a Spotlight Event. Each time this event goes on, one single Pokemon will get the spotlight for an hour, where players have the opportunity to catch a ton of that specific one.
During this event, players will also have the chance to gain some extra rewards to benefit their in-game experience, such as getting different types of candy, XP, or Stardust, which are all important currencies in the game. Candy and Stardust are used for leveling up and evolving their Pokemon or teaching them new moves. Here is the Pokemon GO spotlight schedule for February.
Updated on February 8: We’ve updated this Pokemon GO guide to reflect the upcoming Spotlight Hour events for February 2024. We’ll be updating this guide every month as new hours are added to the PoGo schedule.
Pokemon GO: Eggs-pedition Access February Guide (Research Tasks & More)
Pokemon GO is bringing back its Eggs-pedition Access event for February, and here are some of the burning questions answered about it.
Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour Schedule for February 2024
Players will be getting a total of five different Pokemon Spotlights for the month instead of the usual four. These spotlight hours take place between 6 PM and 7 PM every Tuesday, local time. Pokemon GO is very accommodating in the sense of not having to follow any other time zone but the one players are in. So whenever 6 p.m. is for the player, it will also be that time in the game, unlike other games that go by their own day and night cycle.
Below is the spotlight schedule for February, along with the Pokemon and rewards that will be included:
- February 6 – Dratini with x2 XP for catching Pokemon. A shiny variant is available.
- February 13 – Munna with x2 candy for transferring Pokemon. A shiny variant is available.
- February 20th – Unknown.
- February 27 – Sandshrew and Alolan Sandshrew x2 transfer candy. A shiny variant is available.
For now, we do not know why February 20th doesn’t have a Pokemon listed. It was left completely off of the Niantic calendar for the month, and we aren’t sure if it will be added later or if another event will happen on this day, but that also seems unlikely.
All the Pokemon listed above are also available in a Shiny variant. This means that while the Spotlight Hours are happening, players will have an increased chance of catching one since the spawn rates have already increased. This is another big upside to playing the spotlight hours outside rewards.
The Spotlight Hours change every month with different Pokemon, so be sure to check back next month for our March Spotlight Hour schedule. That is everything we know about the spotlight schedule for February so far.
