Drifloon Spotlight Hour Today in Pokemon Go

  • Don’t catch any spawns around you for at least 30-45min before the Spotlight Hour begins. This is because all of these spawns will turn into the Spotlight Hour Pokemon when the event starts
  • Find out where the biggest spawn groups in your area are and take advantage of it
  • Don’t rely on Lures, unless you’re a rural player. This is because Lures can’t do much to help you grind and the spawns are limited to 1 Pokemon every 3 minutes
  • Use the fast catch trick
  • Walk around constantly
  • Excellent throws will get you a ton of XP
  • Have as much Pokemon Storage as you can
  • Have as many PokeBall as you can
  • DON’T APPRAISE JUST GRIND! You will have plenty of time, later on, to decide which Pokemon you need. Have in mind that this is ONE HOUR event
