In October, the Pokémon Go Spotlight Hour is getting spooky with Ghost and Poison all coming to the fore. We’re also getting a Duskull Community Day later this month. So here’s a quick rundown on what to expect each time the event rolls around each day. As a reminder, these are very limited-time events.
For the month of October 2021 Pokémon Go 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. Some days give out boosted XP for evolutions, others give out more Stardust. And of course, we get increased spawn rates, which means much more Candy for powerups and Evolution. Lay down lures to increase spawn rates if you really want to farm this.
Duskull Community Day will also be run this month, so be on the lookout for that.
