Every Spotlight Hour event takes place on a Tuesday from 6:00-7:00 PM Local time, but will always feature a different Pokemon and bonus. This week, you’ll be able to take advantage of 2x Catch Candy for any Pokemon that you find during this hour frame, so you’ll be able to work towards evolving any Pokemon that you’ve been wanting, as well as an enhanced spawn rate for Nosepass.

Can Nosepass Be Shiny?

If you’re looking for a shiny Nosepass, you’ll know when you’ve come across one due to visual cues that will arise when you encounter them, as well as a completely different color pallet, with Nosepass appearing Golden instead of the blue they normally are.
