West Sea Shellos is having its own Spotlight Hour in Pokemon Go. Spotlight Hour events happen once per week and focus on a single Pokemon. During this time period, players are able to almost exclusively encounter the Pokemon in question. This is a great chance to build up Stardust, XP, and Candy for said specific Pokemon. The deed that makes August so interesting is that the final two weeks for Spotlight Hour are dedicated to Pokemon that have yet to be released. It’s only a matter of time before they make their official announcement. Until then, players will be able to potentially get their hands on a West Sea Shellos for the very first time. This guide will show players how they can prepare for this upcoming Spotlight Hour.
West and East Sea Shellos both have different colors depending on the region the player is playing in. West Sea Shellos is from the Western Hemisphere while the East Sea form is only available in the Eastern Hemisphere. For those players looking to capture every Pokemon available in the game, they will need to literally travel across the globe to hunt these rare regional variants. Fortunately, this upcoming Spotlight Hour will be the first time for many to encounter this alternative form. This guide will show players how they can prepare for this historic Pokemon event.
How To Prepare For West Sea Shellos Spotlight Hour In Pokemon Go
West Sea Shellos Spotlight Hour will take place on Tuesday, August 17th from 6 pm to 7 pm local time. Here are all the things players can do to prepare for this event.
- Wait To Clean Out Storage: There is nothing worst than having to clear out the Pokemon Storage than being in the middle of an event but in this case, it makes sense. Players who transfer their Pokemon during the Spotlight Hour will be rewarded with double the candy. It’s a great way to get a ton of candy until its Shiny form is released.
- Lucky Egg and Star Piece: Since spawn rates are so drastically high, this is the perfect chance to earn double the XP and Stardust. Use these items if they are readily available.
- Capture For Trading: Since West Sea Shellos is a regional Pokemon, players should always keep a few of them on hand in case players will want to trade for them in the future.
The final two Spotlight Hours have yet to be announced but they will likely reveal new Pokemon to the players. It will still take place on Tuesday but the Pokemon in question remain a mystery. It will be interesting to see which Pokemon are added to the game’s growing roster.
