It's time for another fresh wave of monthly content in Pokémon Go – and you know exactly what that means: A brand-new series of weekly Spotlight Hours is beckoning, luring you into the game with some welcome bonuses in June 2024.

Here are all Pokémon Go Spotlight Hours in June 2024.

Pokémon Go: Spotlight Hours in June 2024

  • June 4: Makuhita – 2x Catch Candy

  • June 25: Morelull – 2x Catch Stardust

Pokémon Go: Spotlight Hours explained

Spotlight Hours in the mobile game take place each Tuesday from 6 to 7pm local time, greatly boosting a single Pokémon's spawn rate during this window of time. This improves your chance of encountering a Shiny variant of the monster (though the Shiny spawn rate itself remains unchanged), if that is already available in the game, as well as catching and evolving a particularly strong specimen for your team in Go Battle League. For trainers aiming to triumph in PokéStop Contests, this is a good opportunity to discover specimens with special size and weight properties as well.

Each Spotlight Hour also has a bonus in tow which might prove useful to you even if the star of the show during an event isn’t relevant for your needs.

Spotlight Hours are a great way to catch and evolve a specific Pokémon to fill out your Pokédex or beef up your battle team for raids and Go Battle League. They are also a fantastic opportunity to get rid of a surplus of monsters from an event or reap saved up rewards from Field Research tasks thanks to their various bonuses. 

Need to evolve ten Pokémon for a task? Wait until a Spotlight Hour arrives that doubles Evolution XP, activate a Lucky Egg, and then fulfill your mission while enjoying the extra resources gained this way.

If you’re not playing Pokémon Go regularly, these weekly events allow you to use your game time in a very efficient manner. You should also check the calendar for all upcoming 5-Star Raids in the game.
