Pokemon GO Blitzle Spotlight Hour 2023

The main draw of the 2023 Blitzle Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour will be, as is often the case, the higher chances to land a shiny Blitzle. We’ll get to that in the next section. For now, let’s get into the other details of the mini-event. First off, it’s beginning on Tuesday, January 31st at 6 AM local time and ending an hour later, at 7 PM local time. During the event, you’ll get double Transfer Candy. You should get twice the Candy for every Pokemon you send to the professor, not just Blitzle. That said, it’s a great chance to farm Candy to power Blitzle up and/or evolve it into Zebstrika.

Can Blitzle be Shiny in Pokemon GO

Yes, Blitzle absolutely can be shin in Pokemon GO, so you can use the Spotlight Hour event to increase your odds of catching one. By “increase your odds,” I mean they’ll be higher by default. Since Bliztle will be spawning way more often than normal, it stands to reason that you might have an easier time of running into a shiny one. Granted, your chances will still be really low, but way better than usual. By the way, telling a shiny Blitzle apart from a regular one is relatively easy; the former is dark blue while the latter is the usual dark gray / light black. So, if you run into the special version of the zebra Pokemon, you’ll know.
