Spotlight Hour on June 6th
Which Pokemon? At the first spotlight hour in June, you can expect 5 Pokemon at once. This is a special feature for these events, where otherwise only one specimen is in focus. You will meet Krabby, Kabuto, Cancer Corps, Scampisto and Krabbox.
What bonuses are active? You get triple the experience points for catching Pokemon.
Who is it worth it for? Different Pokemon are worthwhile for you depending on the use:
- Kingler, the evolution of Krabby, is a good PvE attacker. However, also a glass cannon
- Kabutops, the evolution of Kabuto, isn’t particularly strong
- Krebutak, the advancement of Cancer Corps, is quite okay as a PvE attacker. But there are many stronger alternatives
- Wummer, the evolution of Scampisto, isn’t particularly strong
- Krawell, the evolution of Krabbox, isn’t particularly strong
The triple XP bonus is especially worthwhile for players who are on their way to level 50.
Which Shinys can you catch? You can catch the Shinys from Krabby, Kabuto, Krebscorps and Scampisto. Only Krabbox does not yet have a dazzling version in Pokemon GO.
Spotlight Hour on June 13th
Which Pokemon? At the second Spotlight Hour in June, you’ll meet the Pokemon Bithora. It is from the sixth generation of the game and can evolve into Thanathora.
What bonuses are active? For catching Pokemon, you get twice the amount of Candy.
Who is it worth it for? Thanathora plays in the lower midfield of the Superliga in PvP. In the Hyperliga, the attacker still makes it into the upper midfield, but has many stronger alternatives. You will not find a must-have attacker on this date.
Can you catch Shiny Bithora? Yes, the dazzling form of Bithora is already active in Pokemon GO and you can catch it if you are lucky.
Spotlight Hour on June 20th

What bonuses are active? For sending Pokemon, you get double the amount of candy.
