Pokémon Go: Spotlight Hour in August 2021

Every Tuesday in August 2021, there will still be a Pokémon waiting to step into the spotlight and bring some bonuses for you. However, the makers of Pokémon Go have decided that they want to surprise players and have only announced a portion of the stage-ready Pokémon. Most likely, the Mon of August 24 and August 31 will still remain a secret, because they might reveal the contents of the previously secret Hyperbonus: Part 3 would give away.

Who is waiting behind the curtain?

While last month was all about Pokémon's roots, it might be reasonable to assume that August 2021's spotlight hour has something to do with Hyperbonus: Space. That's because in addition to Magnetilo, you can expect Shellless from the Eastern Sea as well as the Western Sea. The only difference between the two variants is the color. However, the pink shellfish from the western sea only live in the western hemisphere of the earth, and the blue shellfish from the eastern sea - who would have thought it - only live in the eastern hemisphere, and can usually only be found in their respective regions.
