Nidoran Spotlight Hour Schedule & Bonuses

If you’re wanting to make sure that you’ve cleared some time off of your schedule for this event, make sure that you’re ready on August 9th from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM Local Time. There will be an enhanced spawn rate of this monster, so you’ll be able to get plenty of them, hopefully enough to evolve them to their final form, Nidoqueen.

During this event, you’ll also happen to earn yourself an extra x2 Catch XP, allowing you to score plenty of experience to level your trainer up. This can be great, especially if you’re on the cusp of hitting that next level, so make sure that you’ve gotten your hands on plenty of Pokeballs to catch as many monsters as possible!

Can Nidoran Be Shiny in Pokemon GO?

For those of you that have been playing Pokemon GO for a good period, you may have come across a few Shiny Pokemon. While they don’t offer any sort of competitive edge in a battle, you’ll be happy to find your favorite monsters with a new color palate, so you can show them off as your buddy, or even in other trainer battles.

Thankfully, for those that love Nidoran ♀, you’ll be able to find them in their Shiny Form during this event if you are lucky, so make sure you’re keeping your eyes peeled for one that looks like its male counterpart, meaning that they will have purple skin rather than their normal blue skin. You’ll also know if you’ve come across one, due to a flash of lights and stars, as well as an icon next to their name to signal that they are this rare form.
