It’s worth noting that, while players can encounter hundreds of Lechonk during its Spotlight Hour, the chances of finding a shiny version remain unchanged. So, the odds of encountering a shiny Lechonk are 1 in 500 or 0.2% chance.

Pokemon Go Lechonk Spotlight Hour bonus

Pokemon Go trainers can enjoy a bonus of 2x XP for catching Pokemon during the Lechonk Spotlight Hour on November 28.

This can be useful even for trainers who aren’t interested in Lechonk, so we recommend using a Lucky Egg to earn even more XP.

Can Lechonk evolve in Pokemon Go?

Yes, Lechonk can evolve into Oinkologne with 50 Candy in Pokemon Go.

Players should note that male and female Oinkologne look different from each other. So, to complete your Paldean collection, you’ll need to evolve a male and a female Lechonk by spending a total of 100 Candy.
