This weeks Spotlight hour in Pokemon Go will feature Turtwig, the Tiny Leaf Pokemon, as well as a doubled catch stardust bonus.
If you don’t particularly care about Turtwig in Pokemon Go, it’ll be worth attending this one regardless given just how useful the doubled Stardust bonus is, as Stardust is forever in short supply.
What can we expect from Turtwig spotlight hour?
For anyone who isn’t used to this particular Pokemon Go event type, Spotlight hours are basically a one-hour long event consisting of all spawns being replaced by a single Pokemon, in this case, that means Turtwig. A whole lot of Turtwig.
The spawn replacing effects are quite similar to what you’d expect from a Community day, but Spotlight hours do not come with all the other extras, they are very simple affairs comparatively.
This is all great if you like Turtwig, not so much if you’re not really a fan of the Tiny Leaf Pokemon.
Fortunately, there is also typically an additional bonus. The event bonus can occasionally go some way to compensating for featured Pokemon that a trainer doesn’t want – and on this occasion, doubled Stardust makes for quite the useful bonus, though it might need a bit of preparation to make sure you have Pokemon ready to transfer.
When is the Pokemon Go Turtwig Spotlight hour?
The Turtwig spotlight hour for Pokemon Go will start on November 16th at 6:00 PM local time and will run until 7:00 PM local time, for a total duration of one hour.
This is the usual length of spotlight hours as the name indicates, and exceptions to this are extremely rare if they ever occur.
Additionally, for those unfamiliar with Pokemon Go’s Local time, it means that you don’t need to worry about timezones because the game event will take place at that time in every timezone, so it’ll be a staggered out event launch across the world.
What else is there to know?
The only other thing really worth considering with spotlight hours is using them as a chance to gather Shiny versions of the featured Pokemon, and as it happens, Shiny Turtwig is available in Pokemon Go, so you can use this to farm it if you’re looking for one.
Good luck on that Shiny hunting, Trainers.
