Pawmi Spotlight Hour (March 2024): Last Minute Guide

Pokémon Spotlight Hour will feature a different Pokémon and a special bonus for one hour at 6:00 p.m. local time on Tuesday during the month of March. Pawmi Spotlight Hour takes place on March 5th, 2024, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm local time, with a bonus of 2x XP for evolving Pokémon.

This Spotlight Hour is the first March 2024 Pokémon spotlight. It’s a great time to evolve any trash ‘mon in your storage before you transfer them.

Trainers who plan to participate should be prepared with a Mega Pokémon to maximise candy gains per Pawmi caught. Here’s everything you need to know!

Note on XP Bonus

If you do not want to catch the featured Pokémon or do not have enough Pawmi candy saved, you can make use of the 2x Evolution XP bonus by evolving any saved Scatterbug, or opening a Mystery Box or Coin Bag and evolving those! This is a great opportunity to evolve any Pokémon caught during the Charged Up event for XP before clearing out your storage. The old-school grinders will remember the days of saving Pidgey and other low cost evolutions for this sort of spotlight hour, and it can be a good way to grind XP with a lucky egg on.

This event takes place just after Charged Up Research day, Pawmi and Pikachu are the cheapest evolution costing 25 Candy a pop. Let’s face it, you probably have lots of Pikachu candy too!

Mega Pokémon that boost Pawmi

The following Pokémon will grant you extra bonuses when catching Pawmi if they are Mega/Primal evolved.

A Note on Mega Catch Bonus

While a Pokémon is Mega-Evolved, additional XP and Candy is granted when catching a Pokémon that shares a type with it, or for any raid boss caught. These do not stack with each other. Additionally, High and Max Level Mega-Evolved Pokémon grant an increased chance to obtain Candy XL when catching a Pokémon that shares a type with it.

Is it worth evolving Pawmi?


Pawmot is an Electric and Fighting type mon. It gets access to Spark right after the recent nerf, which is a little unlucky, and all its best moves cause it to nerf its defence, hurting its ability to stay in battle for long. It’s hard to get too excited about it in its current state, but it could be decent in the future Electric Cup!


Pawmot is good as a budget attacker for newer players. In fact, I’d say really good in terms of cost to performance. Pawmot is 6th overall in terms of performance on our own database not counting megas and legendaries. And second overall if we ignore those expensive to power-up shadow Pokémon as well. Only really being outclassed by Magnezone. But still, due to a lack of power-up cost friendly competition, Pawmot is very decent and I’d say definitely worth getting if you’re in need of more solid Electric types.

Pawmot’s potential as a Fighting type raider is a bit lacking though. So I’d say stick to using Pawmot as a purely Electric type raid attacker.
