With the conclusion of the Astral Eclipse and Ultra Beast Arrival events, Trainers globally can look forward to the final Spotlight Hour for November. This limited-time event will feature an abundance of the owl-looking Pokémon, Hoothoot, offering a chance for Trainers to collect plenty of Hoothoot Candies, which they can use to evolve it into Noctowl. But the more important question is: can Hoothoot be Shiny during the Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO?

Is Hoothoot Shiny In Pokémon GO? - November Spotlight Hour

The answer is yes! You'll be excited to know that you can encounter a Shiny Hoothoot during the November Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO. The nocturnal Normal/Flying-type Pokémon, Hoothoot, will appear more frequently in-game and provide a unique event bonus for one hour on 29th November 2022 between 6 pm and 7 pm local time.

Luckily, spotting a Shiny Hoothoot won’t be too complicated as this Shiny variant will come boasting a different color than its Normal form. Since the release of the Shiny Hoothoot in December 2021, its feathered exterior has gained a gold hue while the rest of its body remains in its default colors.

Nevertheless, catching Hoothoot or its Shiny form shouldn’t give you any issues as long as you come prepared for the encounter. Equip a couple of Poké Balls with some Razz Berries and Lure Modules or Incense to attract Hoothoot to your location.

If you catch Hoothoot or its Shiny form, you’ll earn double the XP from evolving Pokémon. That said, you'll need 50 Hoothoot Candies to evolve Hoothoot to Noctowl and earn a maximum of 4000 XP per evolution.

Alongside the double Evolution XP you can gain during Hoothoot’s Spotlight Hour, other event bonuses from previous Spotlight Hours will be applicable. Below, we’ve listed the remaining event bonuses that will feature during the upcoming Spotlight Hour:

  • Double Catch Stardust
  • Double Catch XP
  • Double Catch Candy
  • Double Transfer Candy

That's all about Shiny Hoothoot in Pokemon Go.
