Minun is the following pocket monster to get a Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour, with the fan-favorite Electric-type Generation 3 character's occasion coming this January. The Pokémon GO 2022 Spotlight Hour follows on from Plusle's Spotlight Hour, which took place on January 18, running from 6 pm to 7 pm local time.
The Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour resembles a mini version of a Community Day, in that they work similarly, yet on a smaller scale. For an hour, a select Pokémon will spawn in the wild more regularly than expected, giving Trainers a chance to add them to their assortment. Players can obtain buffs to Candy and Stardust just like Community Days, however there isn't an increased Shiny experience rate during that hour. There are also more Spotlight Hours than Pokémon GO Community Days, and together the two events can give ample chance to catch specific Pokémon.
Minun's Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour is set to begin later this January, taking place on Jan 25 from 6pm to 7pm local time (via Dexerto). The Spotlight Bonus will be Double Transfer Candy, and as Shiny Minun is already available in Pokémon GO, the variant will also be available through the occasion. Shiny Minun will not have an increased spawn rate, yet fortunate Trainers may still have the option to experience one. Minun's Spotlight will be the final Spotlight Hour of January 2022.
Along with the Minun Spotlight Hour, Pokémon GO will also soon have another Community Day featuring Bulbasaur. The Generation One starter Pokémon has been in previous Community Day events previously, yet as a fan-favorite character, its return is profoundly anticipated. Players will have a higher chance at obtaining a Shiny Bulbasaur, and Bulbasaur caught during the occasion will actually want to learn Frenzy Plant. The first Community Day of the month, Spheal, happened on January 16.
Plusle and Minun are two very much like looking Pokémon, yet Plusle's Shiny variant is hard to distinguish from its original versions because of the colorations being similar. Fortunately, there is still the sparkle impact to show that it is a Shiny, however it's still hard to differentiate when comparing them in the game menu. Meanwhile, Shiny Minun has a lot more splendid green tone compared to its normal version. Shiny Plusle is up there with Shiny Regice as one of the worst Shiny Pokémon to chase after this reason. While the Shiny odds will not be boosted for the Minun Spotlight Hour, there is still a chance for players to obtain it to pair it with Plusle.
