Niantic has revealed the Pokémon Go Featured Hours schedule for August 2022. With Hisui’s Voltorbe, Nidoran♀/♂, Statitik and Poichigeon, there’s a lot to look forward to!
The Featured Hour is one of Niantic’s most popular weekly events in Pokémon Go. Each week, a different Pokémon is thrust into the spotlight, offering sky-high appearance rates and a special doubled bonus.
For one hour, trainers will have the chance to catch as many Pokémon of that specific species as they can, offering the perfect opportunity to fill up their Pokédex and earn enough candy to evolve and upgrade those Pokémon.
What’s the next featured Pokémon? Date, time and bonus
Niantic has revealed that the next Featured Hour will involve Nidoran♀ and will take place on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild for a short period of time, between 6pm and 7pm local time. This means you’ll be able to participate and catch it no matter where you play in the world.
On top of that, players will be able to enjoy doubled Capture PX with each capture thanks to the event bonus.
Is there a Shiny version of Nidoran in Pokémon Go?
Yes, there is indeed a Shiny version of Female Nidoran on Pokémon Go. It can be distinguished by its pink/purple color that is close to that of Nidoran Male.

How to prepare for the Featured Hour in Pokémon Go
Since Star Hours only last 60 minutes, there are a number of things you can do to prepare to make sure you don’t waste valuable time:
- Make sure you have enough Poké Balls
- Do you make sure you have enough Bees to get duplicate candy or to make it easier to catch
- Empty Storage box Pokémon to make room
- Save the Poképièces and purchase at least two Incense for the event
In addition to these tips, Star Hours are the perfect opportunity to use items such as Luck Eggs or Star Dust to increase the XP you will earn during the event.
Appearance rate and Shiny rate during the Featured Hour
The appearance rate of each Featured Hour Pokémon is increased for 60 minutes during these events, which means you’ll have many opportunities to catch each species.
As a result, the appearance rate of each Shiny variation is also increased. Many trainers use the Featured Hours to add to their collection.
