Tonight Is Litten Spotlight Hour In Pokémon GO: March 2023

Tonight is Litten Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO and it will feature this Fire-type Alolan Starter with double Stardust for catching Pokémon.

Tonight is Litten Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO. From 6–7 PM tonight, Tuesday, March 21st, this Pokémon will appear throughout the hour with increased frequency in the wild. It will also be responding more frequently to Incense and will even pop up in spawn points that are not normally active. You will need to get out there and walk in order to activate that Incense buff, though. This is the third of four Spotlight Hours of March 2023 in Pokémon GO, so keep reading to see what's coming up. First, though, let's get into the details for tonight.

Unfortunately, Litten cannot be encountered in its Shiny form in Pokémon GO. Rowlet will likely have its Shiny introduced through a future Community Day, but considering we are still working through the Kalos Starter Community Days with Rowlet and Froakie still waiting in the wings, it is likely going to be quite a while before we see the release of the cute Shiny Litten.

That doesn't mean you shouldn't get out there and catch, though. First, throw on a couple of Star Pieces because tonight's bonus for Litten Spotlight Hour is double Stardust for catching Pokémon.

Next week is the final March 2023 Spotlight Hour, going down on Tuesday, March 28th, 2023. It features Popplio in the Spotlight with double XP for catching Pokémon.

Looking ahead, we also have a new event starting tomorrow.
