Is Ledyba Shiny? Spotlight Hour Rewards and Details

Spotlight hours have been in rotation in Pokemon GO for a few years now and we’re now approaching the latest. This time, the featured Pokemon is none other than Ledyba, leaving players to wonder if it can be shiny in the game.

The Ladybug Pokemon was first released in Pokemon Gold and Silver and made its Pokemon GO debut with the release of the Johto Region in February 2017.

Now, for the first time, it steps into the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour – let’s take a look if Ledyba can be shiny during this hour-long event.

Pokemon GO Ledyba Spotlight Hour Rewards and Details

The Ledyba Spotlight Hour takes place in Pokemon GO on Tuesday, July 5, 2022. The event runs for an hour, starting at 6 pm local time and finishing at 7 pm local time.

This time out, the game will feature 2x XP for catching Pokemon, so you’ll want to catch as many as possible during this hour!

Can Ledyba Be Shiny During the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour

Thankfully for shiny hunters, Ledyba can be shiny during the Pokemon GO Spotlight Hour.

The shiny form was first released during the Mega Battle Challenge of September 2022.

Unfortunately, however, the shiny form of Ledyba isn’t a very exciting one. Rather than a vivid red ladybug, the Pokemon’s outer shell becomes more of a pale orange colour. You can check it out in the tweet below:

As you can see, there’s not much difference.

It’s also worth noting that Spotlight Hours in Pokemon GO aren’t like the monthly Community Days. While during Community Days, the featured Pokemon has a vastly boosted shiny rate, during Spotlight Hours they don’t.

This means there’s a very high likelihood that during tonight’s event, you won’t encounter a shiny Ledyba. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
