Just announced by Niantic, it’s a throwback sort of month, with the original Gen 1 starters taking center stage for most of the month. Of course, this means there will be a lot of shiny opportunities along with the big bonuses for the hour long events. To plan out your month, here’s the Spotlight Hour Schedule for July 2021 in Pokémon GO.
