August 2021 Spotlight Hour Schedule (Via LeekDuck)

NOJ711

Getting the other Shellos would be great! Will mark the date in the calendar


reegstah

I got the other Shellos when they muffed the release lol.


somedepression

Sooooooo the unannounced is not basculin? I thought I remember them saying we’d have a chance to catch both color basculins. Did I imagine that?


divdax

They will be available during Ultra Unlock 2! Don't remember if they will be on the wild or in 7km eggs though


somedepression

Thank you!


sijam24

That is about the only think during these two weeks I need, the opposite color ones. Exciting times....................................


Nervous-Weird-7784

Who is unannounced and why do they have 2 spotlight hours


2cat_2curious

the evolution of Unown


MegatronsDanceParty

Ultra Unlock 3 includes two weeks of Arceus spotlight hour. It’s the least that they could do after two weeks of Shellos.


ShiroTenshiRyu77

Wait is shiny Shellos not in the game yet?


chiipotle

No, but I could see them releasing it as an unannounced shiny next week. There were 2 new shinies for part 1 of the unlock, but only 1 announced for part 2. Plus it’s strange that they would feature the same Pokémon during a spotlight hour 2 weeks in a row, and a region specific Pokémon that will only be in raids during the rest of the event.


dogecoin_pleasures

It's possible they could do basculin shiny too/instead. As far as I knew shellos wouldn't be in the wild, so I'm hyped it gets a spotlight hour


faulty_thinking

What was the last unannounced shiny, can anyone recall? Was there one as part of this year’s GoFest? (Didn’t get a ticket myself)


Heroneman

I wanna say it was noibat when this gen released tbh. Could be wrong


faulty_thinking

Noibat shiny hasn’t been released... as far as I know...?


Heroneman

Oh huh, my b i thought I had seen it but honestly could be wrong about it. Not like i see a ton of noibat to begin with lol


Shiranui85

It's not yet in the game


burntphantrash

So wait, I’m in Australia, will I be able to get the west shellos? Probably a dumb question


faulty_thinking

Yes, I believe you should be able to. Both shellos are also wild spawns as part of Ultra Unlock 2; ie region unlocked for the duration of the event. Quite underwhelming for those of us living near the Meridian, I have to say...


mikebellman

I’m must also add that I absolutely love the LeekDuck “generic plushie” monster. Edit: I’ve never played the MSG and didn’t know. It’s still adorbs. Substitute! I choose you!


TheKingofHearts26

That's the substitute doll


CaptLemmiwinks

It's from the main series games for the move substitute.


MarkusEF

What are you talking about? The placeholder next to Unannounced? It comes from the move Substitute.


mikebellman

Oh. I’ve never actually played the MSG. I still adore it


arjhek

It's popular enough to have plushies!


whotookthenamezandl

Fun fact: The moment Shellos went live in Pokemon Go, I mean like 1pm on whatever day it was, I was walking around a local park in Arizona and a blue one spawned. "Oh, sweet, new Pokemon time!" Apparently the blue ones don't spawn in this hemisphere. lol Never saw one again. Still have the little dude. Named him Blue 😎


whotookthenamezandl

Does anybody like 2x Transfer Candy? It's like Diet Catch Candy.


impulsenine

I have a bunch of things I've traded for that were bad, but that candy is very hard to come by—Dialga, Axew, that sort of thing—that I hold onto for those. I have to purge them early sometimes to make room, but I try to take advantage.


Riftis

Funny, I feel the opposite! 2x transfer candy is a great chance to get extra candy for rare stuff which is always good, while 2x catch candy can be a total waste of a spotlight hour depending on the Pokémon, it's the only spotlight hour that doesn't have a bonus that's consistently useful.


Maserati777

Its interesting to note that blue Shellos hasn’t been available in the main series game since gen 5.


Mystic39

Blue, East Sea Shellos is available on Sword & Shield.


GrindtheTeef

He was in Sun and Moon.


FalloveroutNicktatto

Lol petition to make the ? Mark pokemon in this image a actual pokemon lol


leicanthrope

It's Missingno!


FennekinPDX

What are the two mystery ones? I wouldn't be surprised if it was Pikachu, since it's been in spotlight hours more than once, but I really hope not.


ModsCantHandleMe

As dumb as that would be, I would really like that. Easy platinum medal for those who still need it like me.


Kevsterific

It won’t be something as common as pikachu or they would’ve just told us. It’s obviously going to be something special and/or new to warrant the mystery aspect


Serenafriendzone

Bored month for spotlights. Why not riolu or garpchomp


GrindtheTeef

Garchomp just had a community day, and riolu is too popular for spotlights. Those are just kind of b-side pokemon they rotate around.


leicanthrope

Off the top of my head, I can recall when I was last all that excited by one of the spotlight picks. I *am* happy to get a regional ticked off the list, so it's a smallish win IMO. ¯\\\_(ツ)_/¯


affinitypaw

LeekDuck does it again!
