Pokemon GO has plenty of events, and Dunsparce is one of the regular Spotlight Hour features. The Spotlight Hour is a regular mini-event that runs for an hour and offers bonuses for participants. The Dunsparce Spotlight Hour event also presents a chance to encounter and catch the sought-after Shiny Dunsparce.
Pokemon GO players can participate in the hour-long event, which offers a boost to the Dunsparce spawn rate along with a bonus of extra Stardust. Dunsparce is a Normal-type monster with a stats spread comprising 131 Attack (ATK), 128 Defense (DEF), and 225 Stamina (STA). The fighter doesn’t evolve, but players can get its Shiny variant running rampant in the wild. That said, this guide explores everything one needs to know before participating in the Dunsparce Spotlight Hour event.
Pokemon GO: Dunsparce Spotlight Hour And Bonuses
The Dunsparce Spotlight Hour event starts on Tuesday, November 21, at 6 PM and runs until Tuesday, November 21, at 7 PM Local Time. The event runs for an hour, increasing the Dunsparce spawn rate for that specific duration. Players get a special Pokemon GO bonus of 2× Catch Stardust for participating in the Dunsparce Spotlight Hour event.
Lucky players also have the chance to encounter a wild Shiny Dunsparce during the Spotlight Hour event. The event’s boosted Dunsparce spawn rate may help catch up to its Shiny odds. Dunsparce is a fantastic fighter with a maximum Pokemon GO CP of 1909. The Pokemon possesses a robust move pool, and its best moveset combines Bite (Dark-type) and Rock Slide (Rock-type), resulting in a total DPS of 8.12.
Pokemon GO: How To Get Shiny Dunsparce
The boosted spawn rate of Dunsparce helps the Spotlight Hour participants to encounter numerous Dunsparce quickly. Players can also use Pokemon GO items to increase the already boosted Dunsparce spawn rate further. The more Dunsparce spawns, the faster players may catch up to its Shiny spawn odds.
Pokemon GO items like Lure Modules and Incense and the Weather Boost function can significantly boost wild Pokemon spawn rates. Lure Modules attach to PokeStops/Gyms, Incense attaches to players, and Weather Boost enhances spawn rates in specific weather conditions.
Dunsparce experiences a spawn rate boost in areas with partly cloudy weather. One can look for PokeStops or Gyms with partly cloudy weather, use a Lure Module at a PokeStop or Gym, activate Incense, and walk around. This strategy maximizes spawn rates in Pokemon GO, improving the odds of encountering the elusive Shiny Dunsparce during featured events.
After a test run via an April Fools’ joke on Google Maps, Pokemon GO was released to the public in the summer of 2016. The AR mobile app saw unparalleled success and continues to be one of the largest mobile games in the world, pulling in billions for developer Niantic.
