Chinchou’s Spotlight Hour: Can Chinchou be Shiny?

On November 9, 2021, Chinchou will be taking the next Spotlight Hour in Pokémon Go. As is the case with previous Spotlight Hours, they start at 6 PM local time and run until 7 PM, lasting exactly for an hour. Be sure to plan for it if you’re looking for a Chinchou!

During Chinchou’s Spotlight Hour, Trainers will receive double the normal amount of candy when you transfer Chinchous to Professor Willow. Trainers looking to evolve or power up their Chinchou should not miss out on this opportunity.
