Pokemon Go’s Hisuian Voltorb Spotlight Hour is next in August 2022! But can Hisuian Voltorb be shiny? And what bonus is available? Here’s everything you need to know.

Pokemon Go’s Spotlight Hour, introduced by Niantic in 2020, has become one of the most popular recurring events in the title. During the first celebration of August, trainers will have the chance to catch the regional Electric/Grass-type Hisuian Voltorb.

While Hisuian Voltorb may not be the strongest addition to your squad, this Spotlight Hour provides the perfect opportunity to stock up on Candy and evolve into his final form, Hisuian Electrode.

As has been the case since 2020, every Tuesday of every month is all about hosting a 60-minute celebration for a single Pokemon. Trainers exploring the map for the set time will encounter the selected ‘mon with increased spawn rates.

Pokemon Go Hisuian Voltorb Spotlight Hour Bonus

Before the Spotlight hour on Tuesday 2 August 2022players will stick around Double Catch Stardust as part of the event bonuses.

This 2x Catch Stardust bonus applies to any Pokemon, not just Hisuian Voltorb, so it’s a good idea to catch as many Pokemon as you can while exploring – then you’ll have a good stash of Stardust in no time.

We always recommend using an XP-boosting Lucky Egg during Spotlight Hours. Since December 2020, Pokemon Go’s level cap has been increased from level 40 to 50, so you don’t want to miss this opportunity to score easy points.

Is Shiny Hisuian Voltorb in Pokemon Go?

Shiny Pokemon are incredibly hard to find, but there’s probably no better time to get one than during a Spotlight Hour when there are hundreds of Pokemon to encounter.

The bad news is that Shiny Hisuian Voltorb is currently unavailable catch in Pokemon Go, which means Hisuian Electrode can’t be Shiny either.

Does Hisuian Voltorb have an evolution in Pokemon Go?

Hisuian Voltorb kan evolve into Hisuian Electrode using 50 Candy. No special items or buddy tasks are required for this evolution process.

It shouldn’t take too long to stock up on enough candies, especially during the Spotlight Hour event, but if you need some help, make sure to use Pinap Berries when catching to earn bonus candies.

Remember you can also transfer any Voltorb you don’t need to get some extra candy – just make sure you check their stats by getting a rating first so you can be sure you’re not transferring a good one!
