The spotlight hour in Pokémon Go is always a good opportunity to grab one or the other Shiny; especially if the shiny version of the pocket monster was not previously available in Niantics. At the limelight hour in October 2020 you can look forward to Pikachu with a world travel and ash cap as well as Zwirrlicht and Shuppet as Shiny.
The spotlight hour takes place every Tuesday in Pokémon Go, a small mini-event that lasts for an hour and puts a pocket monster in the focus (i.e. in the spotlight). Meanwhile, another bonus is also active, from which the players of the Niantic collecting game can benefit. In October 2020, Pikachu will be in the spotlight of the spotlight hour twice in Pokémon Go, namely once with a world travel cap and once with the original cap.
Then, when we get closer to the end of the month and thus Halloween, it will be scary, because then you can look forward to Shuppet and Twisted Light, with the option of their Shiny variant. They've been around for a while in Pokémon Go, but apart from events, the two ghost Pokémon from the third generation are rarely seen. So use the spotlight hour! You can find out below which bonuses will be activated for the spotlight hours in October 2020.
