These are the Spotlight Hours and bonuses coming to Pokémon GO in January 2023:

  • February 7th, 2023: Pidgey with double XP for evolving Pokémon
  • February 14th, 2023: Woobat with double Stardust for catching
  • February 21st, 2023: Jigglypuff with double XP for catching
  • February 28th, 2023: Slakoth with double Candy for catching

Pidgey is a terrific feature as it has become kind of rare after years of being an abundantly over-common spawn. This is going to give people who haven't gotten a chance to earn a lot of Pidgey Candy a good shot at doing just that as well as hunting for Shiny Pidgey. All four Spotlight Hour features this month can also be Shiny. They are all relatively uncommon in the wild in the past few Seasons and are actually generally strong Shinies as well. Shiny Pidgey is gold, Woobat is seafoam green, Jigglypuff has bright green eyes, and Slakoth is bubblegum pink.

Stay tuned for full Spotlight Hour breakdowns.
