Wingull is a Generation III Water / Flying dual-type Pokemon. Also known as the Seagull Pokemon, this white and blue bird-like critter is set to be the star of its very own Spotlight Hour in Pokemon GO. During this SH, the Wingull’s spawn rate will dramatically increase. So, if you don’t have a Wingull of your very own, then this is the perfect opportunity for you to get it. In this guide, we will tell you exactly when the Wingull Spotlight Hour in Pokemon GO May 2022 is set to start, whether or not you can get a Shiny Wingull from it, as well as list out all of Wingull’s weaknesses so that you can easily catch it.
Pokemon GO Wingull Spotlight Hour
The Pokemon GO Wingull Spotlight Hour is set to begin this Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022, at 6 PM Local Time. It will last for an hour and conclude on the same day, at 7 PM Local Time. Besides increased Wingull spawns, during this Spotlight Hour, you will also earn x2 Catch Candy.
Can Wingull Be Shiny?
Luckily for all of you Shiny hunters, yes, Wingull can indeed be Shiny. The odds of you getting a Shiny Wingull are not particularly high (as they never are), but since so many Wingulls are going to spawn during the SH, you have a much better chance of getting a Shiny one than you normally would. The Shiny version has green stripes on its wings instead of the usual blue, so you will be able to tell it apart easily. To get Wingull to evolve into Pelipper, you will need 50 Candy.
Wingull is resistant to Fighting, Bug, Steel, Fire, Water moves (all of which deal just 63% damage to it), and especially to Ground moves (these deal only 39%). So it’s advisable that you don’t employ these when battling it. On the other hand, Wingull is weak to Rock moves (+160%), and by far the best move type to use against it is Electric, since these moves deal a whopping 256% damage to it.
