Pokémon GO Spotlight Hour January 2024 featuring Barboach

Whiskers will be everywhere, but they will not be a cat’s whiskers. Instead, it will be the whiskers of a fish-like, serpentine Pokémon.

On January 23, 2024, Trainers will be able to delve into a fan-favorite event, which is Spotlight Hour. Now, for this Spotlight Hour in January 2024, the featured Pokémon will be the Whiskers Pokémon, Barboach.

This dual-type Water/Ground Pokémon is truly unique, and the feature that catches our attention the most is the whiskers on its front, which are mostly used to wait for prey while this Pokémon is under the mud. If you secure 50 Barboach Candy, you can evolve the Pokémon into a Whiscash.

Barboach will be appearing in the wild more frequently on January 23, 2024, for one hour exactly. As you know, we all can enjoy Spotlight Hours every Tuesday of the month, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. alongside a few bonuses. So, for this Spotlight Hour event in January 2024, you can evolve as much Pokémon as you want, and for that, you will get double the XP for evolving Pokémon. Plus, you might encounter a Shiny Barboach, given that it will have an increased chance of being a Shiny Barboach.

What is your Barboach number? Do you have a Shiny Barboach?
