Pokémon Go Diglett Spotlight Hour: shiny, forms, and event bonuses

Pokémon has to do with capturing ’em all, and in Pokémon Go that suggests capturing every version, consisting of unusual Shiny variations of Pokémon. Every Tuesday in Pokémon Go, gamers will see a particular Pokémon generating more often throughout Spotlight Hour, which ranges from 6 p.m. to 6:59 p.m. regional time. Spotlight Hour is your possibility to fill up on sweet, a possibility for high CP Pokémon, and, if you’re fortunate, a Shiny Pokémon.

For Jan. 11, Diglett, the Mole Pokémon, will remain in the spotlight, and gamers will make double Catch Stardust throughout that time. (Spotlight Hour Diglett is its initial Kanto type, not the Alolan type.)

Are glossy rates increased throughout Spotlight Hour?

Shiny rates do not seem increased throughout Spotlight Hours, based upon information collected by Pokémon neighborhood The Silph Roadway. Nevertheless, the large variety of Pokémon that generate throughout the hourlong weekly occasion will offer you an enhanced possibility of clicking a random glossy. The more Pokémon you click on, the more opportunity you have to catch a Shiny Pokémon.

What can I do to attract more Shiny Pokémon?

Not much, I’m afraid. It appears to be random chance. Shiny Pokémon catch rates are set by developer Niantic, and they are typically only boosted throughout unique occasions like Neighborhood Days or Safari Zones, or in Legendary Raids. There are no consumable products that increase Shiny Pokémon rates.

Where can I discover a list of readily available Shiny Pokémon?

LeekDuck keeps a list of presently readily available Shiny Pokémon. It’s a handy visual guide that highlights what all of the existing Shiny Pokémon appear like.
