Just like the Pokemon Makuhita, the Wingull Spotlight hour is similar in time and approach. The Pokemon GO Wingull spotlight hour begins on 11 June 2024, from 6 PM to 7 PM local time. So, when you log in to Pokemon GO, you’ll see tons of Wingull suddenly appearing around the map, ready for you to capture.

And yes, you stand a chance to capture a shiny Wingull during these times. You’ll have a chance of encountering one of the shinies since their spawn frequency is boosted. However, remember that their shiny spawn rates are still the usual, so it all boils down to how lucky you are.

Regardless, if you play in the Spotlight Hour, you can get some good rewards in Pokemon GO. For the Wingull Spotlight Hour, you can get yourself 2x Trainer Candy. So, if you want to grab the Pokemon or the item, this is the best choice to consider pursuing in-game tomorrow.

Pokemon GO Wingull Spotlight Hour: Best Tips to Catch

So, now you know the timings and the rewards for catching Wingull in Pokemon GO, let’s take a look at some suggested tips by yours truly and the community to increase your chances of catching a Wingull:

1. Walking Spawns Pokemon

I guess we all know Pokemon GO is all about walking. The more you walk, the better the spawn chances of Pokemon. As always my best suggestion for the Pokemon GO Wingull spotlight hour would be to walk a lot. Seriously, walk as much as you can. Since this is Spotlight Hour, you taking even seven steps should spawn a Wingull right in your vicinity. So, take this time to put some walking distance, while catching the Pokemon.

2. Fast Catching Is Your Friend

Now this method is specifically for the trainers out there who want to catch as many Wingulls as possible. It takes approximately 16 seconds for you to complete a catch encounter. We don’t want that, as we only have an hour. So, the best thing to do here is to use the fast-catch method.

Thankfully, it’s simple knowing how to use it. You use one of your fingers and hold either the berry icon or the Pokeball icon, and use another to throw the Pokeball. Once you see the Pokeball hitting the Pokemon, release the icon button and immediately click the run button on the top-left. You’ll see the Pokemon getting added to your roster. It will take you some time to get used to it, so I’d suggest practicing a little bit before the Spotlight Hour begins.

3. Use Berries During Encounters

Use Nanab Berry as it increases the chances of catching a Pokemon in Pokemon GO

Berries are your best friend in any Pokemon encounter. They increase the catch candy output, improve your catching chances, etc. So, when you encounter a Wingull during your adventures, use a Razz Berry on them. This improves your chances of catching the Pokemon immediately, without letting it escape.

4. Stock up on Poke Balls

Stock up on some Great and Mega Balls in Pokemon GO for today's Spotlight Raid

As you would expect, Poke Balls in Pokemon GO are the game’s soul. While you can use as many as you want, they come in a limited quantity. So if a Pokemon escapes, you have pretty much wasted that chance.

As such, I suggest visiting Poke Stops and stocking up on as many Poke Balls as you can. Great and Mega Poke Balls are even more helpful, allowing you to catch a Pokemon with lesser escape chances. So if you find that the monster keeps escaping the red Poke Balls during the Pokemon GO Wingull Spotlight Hour, use a Mega Ball instead!

5. Incense Yourself up to Attract Wingull

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

The final tip I can give you to increase your Wingull shiny encounter chances in Pokemon GO is to use your available incense. The Daily Adventure incense attracts all wild Pokemon to your location for 15 minutes. As is the name, the game gives one free incense to players daily. However, you can buy more incense with a better duration by getting PokeCoins.

Well, I hope you’re now prepared for the Pokemon GO Wingull spotlight hour! Let me know if you manage to capture a shiny Wingull in the comments below.
