Pokemon Go Spotlight Hour Tuesday, February 2, 2021: 4,000 XP per evolve and 600k XP Total

The list for the new featured Pokemon in the well-known Spotlight hours event is in, and we are sure that you will like it as much as we do.

Every Tuesday, from 6:00 p.m. local time to 7:00 p.m. local time, the Pokemon GO fans will have numerous encounters with a chosen Pokemon, accompanied by various bonuses.

Here is the list:

  • On the first Tuesday of February, which is February 2nd, 2021, will be Ekans. Together with the Snake Pokemon, we will earn twice the XP for evolving Pokemon.
  • The next Spotlight Hour event will be on Tuesday, February 9th, 2021, we will see Miltank, paired up with earning twice the Stardust for catching Pokemon.
  • On February 16th, 2021, Luvdisc will grace us with its presence and will give us twice the XP for catching Pokemon.
  • On February 23rd, 2021, the Electic Pokemon, Pikachu, will take the spotlight, and we will earn twice the Candy for catching Pokemon.

As for the first Spotlight Hour event, due to the bonus that we will have, we advise you to spend your time focusing on evolving as many Pokemon as you can, because the base XP for evolving is now 1,000 (as part of the Go Beyond update, see here) and you can get 4,000 XP per evolve with a Lucky egg. To make it easier for everyone, here is the math:

  • 1,000 XP for evolve
  • x2 XP during the Spotlight Hour (now we are at 2,000 XP per evolve)
  • x2 for a Lucky Egg (and we end up with 4,000 XP per evolve)

Now, if you evolve 150 Pokemon during the event, which lasts one hour, you can end up with 600,000 XP. This can happen and some players already have 150 Pokemon ready to evolve.

Are you guys ready for the first Spotlight Hour event in February, 2021?
