In October, the Pokémon Go Spotlight Hour is getting spooky with Ghost and Poison Pokémon. The mobile fans get their hands on a new event, complete with a bunch of different rewards and tasks. The Gastly Spotlight Hour is almost here. The Gastly Spotlight Hour will be hosted on Tuesday Oct. 12, 2021. It will be from 6pm to 7pm local time in your time zone. The game will once again have another set of events for players to complete.
Here’s the thing, the game isn’t stopping there. The mobile adventure game will bring a few more of these events incoming. During the event, players will be seeing increased spawns of the Gastly, as well as a few focused rewards for captures of that monster. Any captures during the event will reward players with a load of Stardust that’s two times more than the normal rate.
