The Pokémon Spotlight Hour (Japanese: スポットライトアワーSpotlight Hour) is a weekly in-game event in Pokémon GO that features specific Pokémon through limited-time increased spawn rates and different resource bonuses every Tuesday, from 6 P.M. to 7 P.M. local time.
This event originally featured only increased spawn rates of Pokémon. A separate event, the Mystery Bonus Hour (Japanese: ふしぎなボーナスアワーMysterious Bonus Hour) which featured only different resource bonuses, were originally held every Thursday from 6 P.M. to 7 P.M. local time. It was discontinued and integrated into the current version of the Pokémon Spotlight Hour.

An error occurred in Indonesia due to this Spotlight Hour coinciding with the month-long Waktu Indonesia Nangkep event; as a result, players do not receive the 2× Transfer Candy bonus as expected. To make up for the error, players playing in Indonesia received 2× Transfer Candy bonuses from January 5, 2023 until the end of the Waktu Indonesia Nangkep event on January 8, 2023.
This Spotlight Hour would have debuted Zorua, which would have appeared in a surprise encounter disguised as the player's Buddy Pokémon. However, due to a glitch, the Zorua surprise encounter is suspended for time zones west of GMT+13, and was reintroduced on October 28, 2022.
