August 2021 may be almost over, but there’s one last thing for Pokémon GO to do and that’s prepare for Wooloo Spotlight Hour. This final hour long celebration is all about the newly introduced Galar Region Pokémon, giving players a chance to catch a ton of them and gather all the Wooloo Candy they may ever need. But to get the most out of it, you need to know how to prepare. So we’re here with the full Wooloo Spotlight Hour guide for Pokémon GO, including the all imporant answer to can Wooloo be shiny in August 2021.

Wooloo Spotlight Hour Guide

Below we break down everything you need to know about how to prepare for Wooloo Spotlight Hour in Pokémon GO by answering the most important questions you might have.

When is Wooloo Spotlight Hour

Wooloo Spotlight Hour will start at 6pm local time on Tuesday, August 31st and last until 7pm. During this hour there will be various bonuses to enjoy, so keep reading to find out what all is going on.

What is the Wooloo Spotlight Hour Bonus, How to Prepare

The biggest bonus for most players will be the boosted spawn rate of Wooloo in the wild. They’ll be appearing anywhere and everywhere during the hour long event, especially if you use an Incense or are near a PokéStop with a Lure on it, so get some Poké Balls ready. Since they were just introduced to Pokémon GO, most players won’t have enough Wooloo Candy to evolve just yet, but if you get enough then you can also enjoy the second bonus.

Double evolution Candy will be active throughout the Spotlight Hour event. If you have any common Pokémon to evolve now is a good time to do it, perhaps with a Lucky Egg active. This will be a great chance to get tons of extra XP and level up. But will that be a distraction from catching Shiny Wooloo?

Can Wooloo be Shiny

Nope, you can evolve and catch all you want during Wooloo Spotlight Hour since there is no shiny to hunt in August 2021. Wooloo cannot be shiny yet, so you’ll need to wait for a future event to track that one down. For now, you can enjoy all of the bonuses of Wooloo Spotlight Hour without worrying about hunting for Shiny Wooloo.

And that’s our Wooloo Spotlight Hour guide for Pokémon GO, including the unfortunate answer to can Wooloo be shiny. If you want to get a head start on next month you can check out the September 2021 Spotlight Hour schedule right here.
