We wanted to bring to your attention the upcoming Paras Spotlight Hour event that presents a fantastic opportunity to collect Stardust. Typically, Paras gives 500 Stardust, but this time all mushroom Pokemon, including Foongus and Shroomish, will provide double Stardust. This nod to the main series games is a reference to the ability to find and sell mushrooms for extra cash. Furthermore, Pokemon associated with valuable items like Sableye’s jewels or Meowth’s gold coin will also be worth extra.

This makes it an excellent event for Stardust farming, so make sure to mark the date.
