The Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours for May 2022 shine amidst all the big events, as it's one of the most dependable and useful for dedicated players. Spotlight Hours in Pokemon GO take place every Tuesday from 6pm to 7pm local time. They'll feature a particular Pokemon, which will spawn in significant numbers, and a small bonus. Here are all the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours being featured in May, along with the bonuses for the events. 

Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours are a good way to find some Pokemon you might not typically see, including potentially the rarest Pokemon in Pokemon GO.

Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours [May 3]: Wingull

The first Spotlight Hour in May will feature the Flying/Water-type from Hoenn, Wingull.

During this Spotlight Hour, you'll receive double candies for catching Pokemon.

Wingull evolves only once, into Pelipper, who is also Water/Flying. This takes 50 Wingull candies. Additionally, Wingull's shiny is available in Pokemon GO! 

Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours [May 10]: Numel

Also from the Hoenn region is Numel, a Fire/Ground-type. 

Numel's Spotlight Hour is May 10 and will have a double transfer candy bonus in effect. 

Numel is not available shiny at the moment, but its evolution, Camerupt, also a Fire/Ground-type, will eventually receive a Mega Evolution. To evolve Numel into Camerupt, it just takes 50 Numel candies.  

 

Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours [May 17]: Magikarp

A classic 'mon, Magikarp is a Water-type from the Kanto region. During its Spotlight Hour on May 17, there will be a double XP bonus for evolving Pokemon. 

Ironically, evolving Magikarp itself is quite the task, as it'll take 400 candies to evolve one into Gyarados, who is a Water/Flying-type. Luckily, Gyarados' Mega Evolution (Water/Dark) is available in Pokemon GO, and the entire family is available shiny. 

 

Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours [May 24]: Seel

Another Water-type from Kanto, Seel will be featured on May 24. During this event, you'll receive double Stardust for catching Pokemon. 

Seel is available shiny, and will evolve into Dewgong with the use of 50 Seel candies. While Seel is only a Water-type, Dewgong is Water/Ice. 

Pokemon GO Spotlight Hours [May 31]: Pikipek

The final Spotlight Hour in May will take place on the 31st, and it'll feature Pikipek, who was just recently introduced into the game. This Normal/Flying-type is originally from the Alola region. 

Pikipek's Spotlight Hour comes with a double catch XP bonus. 

Pikipek can evolve twice — first, into Trumbeak with 25 candies, then, into Toucannon with 100 more candies. All are Normal/Flying.
