  • Make sure you have enough Poke Balls to catch multiple Spotlight Hour Pokemon.
  • Make sure you have enough Berries to get double Candy or make catching easier.
  • Clear out your Pokemon Storage Box to make room for all the Pokemon you’ll catch.
  • Save up your PokeCoins and purchase an Incense for the event.

This is also the perfect time to use your premium items like Lucky Eggs or Star Pieces to increase the XP and Stardust you will earn since you will be catching a lot of Pokemon in the process.
