Best Tips to Catch Elgyem During Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour

When you only have an hour, walking and hoping you run into an Elgyem can be daunting. Thankfully, there are some things you can do to increase your chances. Follow the best tips below for that:

1. Take Advantage of the Weather Boost effect

If you know about Elgyem, you might notice these Pokemon love windy weather. You can use the Spotlight Hour advantage to find more Elgyem in windy areas. A windy PokeStop or Gym will be the best place to find a lot of Elgyem and maybe even their shiny variant.

2. Lure Modules & Incense

You can further capitalize on the spawn effect through the Lure Module. Once you are in a PokeStop with windy conditions, activate the Adventure Incense to create a double lure effect and increase Elgyem encounters.

Use adventure incense to increase your chances to encounter Abra during today's Spotlight Hours in Pokemon GO

You can purchase the incense from the store using PokeCoins to have a 60-minute bonus spawn rate. However, players also get a free incense daily that attracts Pokemon for 15 minutes.

3. Use the Pokemon GO Fast Catch Method

While having the best balls in your hand is important to catch Pokemon, bringing some Great Balls will increase your capture rate, especially on the Shiny Elgyem. But to maximize the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour, use the fast catch method and gather as many Elgyem as possible. This technique skips the capture animation, saving you a lot of time while trying to gather a lot of Elgyem.

To perform a fast catch in Pokemon GO, simply hold down your finger on the Poke Ball icon and with your other finger, throw the Poke Ball at the Pokemon. As soon as the Ball hits the Pokemon, slide your finger holding the icon (the one you held initially) toward the middle of the screen and let go.

We hope you’re now ready to catch Elgyem in today’s Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour. How excited are you for this interesting Pokemon? Let us know in the comments below!
