Before March 21, 2023, Litten will be in the spotlight pokemon go, and you get double Stardust for catching Pokémon. And no, Litten can’t shine in it pokemon go(yet)!
Just as Rowlet was the star of Spotlight Hour last week, Litten is the star this week. Again, it’s not available shiny and it’ll probably make its shiny debut during a Community Day – which is pretty far off, judging by the fact that we’re only just getting started in the Kalos region.
You should try to grab a Litten with high IVs and wait to develop it until future Community Day. During that event, Litten will likely learn Blast Burn when it’s evolved, which will probably be one of his best attacks.
Pokémon is about catching them all and getting in pokemon go, that means catching every variant, including rare shiny versions of Pokémon. In every Tuesday pokemon go, players will see a specific Pokémon spawn more often during Spotlight Hour, which runs from 6:00 PM to 6:59 PM local time. Spotlight Hour is your chance to load candies, a chance for high CP Pokémon and, if you’re lucky, a Shiny Pokémon.
Do shiny rates increase during Spotlight Hour?
Shiny rates don’t seem to increase during Spotlight Hours, based on data collected by the Pokémon community Silph Road. However, the sheer number of Pokémon that spawn during the hour-long weekly event gives you a higher chance of clicking a random shiny. The more Pokémon you click, the more chance you have of catching a Shiny Pokémon.
What can I do to attract more Shiny Pokémon?
Not much, unfortunately. It seems to be a coincidence. Shiny Pokémon catch rates are determined by developer Niantic and usually only increase during special events like Community Days or Safari Zones, or in Legendary Raids. There are no consumables that increase the speed of Shiny Pokémon.
Where can I find a list of available Shiny Pokémon?
Leek Duck preserves a list of currently available Shiny Pokémon. It’s a handy visual guide that illustrates what all existing Shiny Pokémon look like.
