There’s a new series of Spotlight Hours happening for February 2022 in Pokémon Go. Here’s what you need to know, Trainers. Pokémon Go Spotlight Hours are randomized little events that Niantic likes to run. For the month of February 2022, Spotlight Hours run from 6-7 pm on the assigned day, in your local time zone. Each iteration of the event will highlight one monster, and give out special capture rewards. Each event is a one-time thing, so get ready while you can.
The Candy and XP rewards return. This means that players who complete captures or transfers get bonus candy for the spotlight Pokémon, and other catches as well. And players get even more bonuses this month as well. Thanks to the holiday season, we can be sure Niantic is about to throw some curveballs into the mix with more events, too.
Pokemon Go Spotlight Hours – February 2022 Dates and Details
Here are the details on each date for the four spotlight events this month in Pokémon Go. The new Pokémon appearing in the Spotlight Hour events: Litleo, Spritzee, Koffing, and Voltorb, each one with their own rewards. And while these aren’t super-rare spawns or anything, Trainers might appreciate these extra boosts. The rewards can be very helpful in training up a roster for the various PvP leagues.

This bonus applies to all Pokémon, not just the one featured in the Spotlight Hour. There’s another bonus coming in as well, Evolution XP. The Trainers that level up and evolve their monsters during the event get a bonus to the base XP for that roster member as well.
