Spotlight Hours

Pokémon GO's Spotlight Hours are a small event where, for a small time, typically from 18:00 to 19:00 local time, Pokémon of a certain species will appear enmass, much like a Community Day. These events typically don't have any additional effects and just run to give a small boost on these species.

Often, the Pokémon selected in the Spotlight Hour will reflect the currently running event in the game, such as a Johto Pokémon spawning during a Johto event
