Pokemon Go Rowlet Spotlight Hour

Pokemon Rowlet from the anime.

A Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour is slated to begin tomorrow. During the Pokemon Go Rowlet Spotlight Hour players will get a higher chance to encounter the Grass type owl Rowlett. To learn more about this event see our complete guide below. This guide walks you through all of the details surrounding the event and how to make the most of it.

Rowlet Spotlight Hour Event Details

Spotlight Events are special weekly events held in Pokemon Go. During these events a target Pokemon becomes more widely encountered while players are out exploring in the wild. On Tuesday, March 14th, the Rowlet Spotlight Hour will occur. Here’s all of the details you need to know about the upcoming Rowlet event:

Date:March 14
Time: 6pm – 7pm Local Time
Event Bonus:2x XP for Evolving Pokémon

While the event is live players will encounter Rowlet more often in the wild. This makes it the prime target for catching as many. During the event you will want to catch as many Rowlet’s as possible to allow you to evolve it into Dartrix and then Decidueye if you don’t already have these Pokemon.

Can Rowlet be Shiny during the Spotlight Hour

Another good use for Spotlight Hour can be shiny hunting the event Pokemon. Unfortunately, for this event, that approach is not applicable as Rowlet currently cannot be shiny in Pokemon Go. This means spending the hour solely for shiny hunting is not a good usage of your time since the shiny version of this Pokemon is not yet in the game. Maybe someday Niantic will add the shiny owl. One can only hope…

Tips to Prepare for the Spotlight Hour

Before signing off I just wanted to give you some prep tips leading into the Spotlight Hour tomorrow. As always you can do a little bit of work before the event to ensure you are ready to go. The major thing to focus on is ensuring you have enough Poke Balls available to last you the full hour. You can purchase more Poke Balls or simply focus on completing tasks in-game to earn more.

Additionally you may also want to go to more high spawn areas to ensure you are getting the most Rowlets you can find during the hour. You can also improve the spawn rate by placing Lure Modules and using Incense to ensure the most Rowlets appear during the hour. See the Litten Spotlight Hour details for next week.
