Mareanie Spotlight Hour: Last Minute Tips!

Mareanie Spotlight Hour (May 2024): Last Minute Guide

Pokémon Spotlight Hour is a special event in Pokémon GO that features a different Pokémon and offers a special bonus for one hour at 6:00 p.m. local time on Tuesdays during the month of May. The final May 2024 Spotlight Hour is scheduled for May 28th, 2024, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm local time, with a bonus of 2x XP for catching Pokémon.

This Spotlight Hour will showcase Mareanie, the starfish Pokémon. Mareanie will be making its shiny debut during this event, which comes at the end of the Ultra Space Wonders event. Mareanie will be featured in Field Research encounters and will also appear in the wild during the Spotlight Hour.

Trainers who plan to participate in the Mareanie Spotlight Hour should come prepared with a Mega Pokémon to maximize candy gains for each Pokémon caught. Here's everything you need to know to make the most of this event:

Spotlight Hour Bonuses:
– 2x XP for catching Pokémon
– The featured Pokémon and its evolution can be shiny in Pokémon GO

Note on XP Bonus:
If you do not wish to catch Mareanie, you can still take advantage of the 2x catch XP bonus by catching any saved Scatterbug, or by opening a Mystery Box or Coin Bag. Make sure to stack 2 Lucky Eggs if you will be playing for the duration of the Spotlight Hour, or use Roar of Time to pause your timers.

Mareanie Fact Sheet:
– Mareanie is a Poison and Water-type Pokémon with a maximum Combat Power of 1099 CP.
– Mareanie's best moveset in Pokémon GO is Bite and Gunk Shot.
– Mareanie is weak to Ground, Electric, and Psychic-type moves, but takes reduced damage from Bug, Fairy, Fighting, Fire, Ice, Poison, Steel, and Water-type moves.
– Mareanie evolves into Toxapex for 50 Mareanie Candy.

Shiny Mareanie:
Shiny Mareanie features a bright pink and pastel orange color palette. If you missed out on capturing this shiny during its Ultra Space Wonders debut, the Mareanie Spotlight Hour is your best chance to obtain it.

Mega Pokémon that boost Mareanie:
During the Spotlight Hour, the following Mega Pokémon will grant you extra bonuses when catching Mareanie if they are Mega/Primal evolved:

– Venusaur (Mega)
– Beedrill (Mega)
– Gengar (Mega)
– Blastoise (Mega)
– Slowbro (Mega)
– Gyarados (Mega)
– Swampert (Mega)
– Kyogre (Primal)

Is it worth evolving Mareanie?
While Toxapex may not be a top choice for PvE content, it can be useful in PvP battles. Toxapex is still relevant in the Great League and can be a valuable addition to your PvP team. If you find a Mareanie with decent IVs, it's worth evolving it into Toxapex, especially considering its new shiny variant.

In conclusion, the Mareanie Spotlight Hour is a great opportunity to catch this unique Pokémon, earn double XP, and potentially encounter its shiny form. Make sure to come prepared with a Mega Pokémon to boost your candy gains and take advantage of the bonuses offered during the event. Get ready to make the most out of the Mareanie Spotlight Hour and enjoy this final May 2024 Pokémon spotlight!
