Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet Eevee.

In Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet there are seasonal and monthly raids that the Pokemon Company holds. These special raids are called spotlight events and they focus on a sole Pokemon for players to fight against. If you are wondering what the past, present, and future Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet Spotlight Raids are, this post is for you.

Every Spotlight Raid in Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet So Far

Spotlight raids work a bit differently than the endgame centered 7 star raids. Instead of fighting a Pokemon that is Level 100 and has a set Tera Type you will instead fight a Pokemon with different Tera Types that is Level 75. This means you are able to secure a Pokemon of more rare Tera Types than you would normally get in-game.

Additionally to the Tera Type change you can also capture as many of the Spotlight Pokemon as you want. This means you are able to easily secure as many of these Pokemon as you want while the event is running. So far the Spotlights that have occurred are as follows:

As you can see from the list above the Spotlight events happen fairly regularly. One thing you may also notice is that different events feature different version exclusives. This makes the Spotlight weekends very good for players that are struggling to complete their pokedex.

Each time there is a Spotlight event we put together a brief guide to help you complete it. Be sure to check back in to this page or the homepage for the most recent Spotlight guide we have available.
