The December 2021 Spotlight Hour has arrived in Pokemon Go with Snover, and many people are wondering if they can use the chance to catch a shiny Snover. This grass and ice type Pokemon arrived with generation IV. It can evolve into Abomasnow at later levels. A very strong Pokemon, this may be the best chance to get these two in your Pokedex. Below, we give our essential guide on the Pokemon Go Spotlight hour and how to catch a Snover.
Pokemon Go Snover Spotlight Hour
Every Tuesday between 6 pm and 7 pm local time, the Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour takes place. This puts the focus on one particular Pokemon, increasing spawn rates and offering special rewards. December 21st, 2021 is the turn of Snover, the grass and ice type Pokemon.
As well as bountiful amounts of Snover, you can also gain a 2 x Catch XP boost during the Spotlight Hour. This means it is worth getting your hands on as many Snover as you can during the event for the boost. For many people, the allure of these spotlight hours is to get the elusive Shiny Snover.
Can Snover be Shiny?
Snover can be shiny in Pokemon Go, though you need to keep your wits about you. The only major difference is that his green arms turn to blue. It can be quite easy to overlook this if you have been facing off against many Snovers in a row.
It is also worth noting that during the Spotlight Hour, the number of shiny Pokemon does not increase per the amount of regular Pokemon spawned. Your best tactic to meet a shiny Snover is to get as many encounters as possible. This can involve catching the amount of Snover you need, then fleeing later encounters until you reach the next Snover. If it is not shiny, then flee and go to the next one.
