Houndour Spotlight Hour Guide (Can Houndour Be Bright?)

Pokemon GO players can join the Spotlight Hour event today. For this week, the game is going with the Dark/Fire-type Pokemon Houndour. However, some players might not be as thrilled about it this time around.

Unfortunately, the dog Pokemon isn’t really a good choice for players to use in Raid battles, at least if the trainers are only using its evolution, Houndoom. However, its Mega Evolution is decent for attacks. If players don’t like the creature very much as an attacker, there is a possibility to get a Shiny variant in Pokémon GO.

Houndour is a Dark/Fire-type Pokémon first introduced in Generation II. The last Spotlight Hour of May begins today, May 30, 2023, and will run for just one hour, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm local time. Players who want to participate will be pressed for time, but there are some rewards fans can receive while playing during this hour.

Houndour has a Shiny variant that gives the Pokémon a blue hue against its normal brown. To give more information to players who want to catch this Shiny Pokémon, the regular approximation for a Shiny to appear is 1 in 500. This Pokémon is a rarer Shiny than others.

Unfortunately, there are no ways to increase the chances of getting a Shiny Houndour other than the chance of it being upgraded during a special event like a Community Day or Safari Zone. Sometimes they can appear in a legendary raid.

A tip for players to use today during the Hour of Focus is to activate an incense. This will attract even more wild Pokemon for a short time, which will bring more encounters with Houndour, which increases the chances of getting a Shiny Houndour. The probability of getting more than one Shiny is unlikely even during events in Pokemon GO.

Keep in mind that the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour is an event that happens every week and will feature a Pokemon where spawn encounters are higher in the wild. Make sure you claim some Houndours before time runs out.

Some bonuses that players can receive during gameplay are extra Candy, Stardust, and XP. All Spotlight events take place every Tuesday between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm local time. The event always lasts only an hour.

Pokemon GO is now available for Android and iOS devices.
