Players will soon have the chance to get their hands on a shiny Ledyba in Pokémon Go. It's probably the main reason you'll want to take part in this week's Spotlight Hour.
There are many other reasons to look forward to the Pokémon Go event. You'll be given the opportunity to catch as many Ledyba as you can, with the possibility of catching a 100% perfect IV stats Ledyba.
Ledyba's Spotlight Hour falls on a fairly quiet day in Pokémon Go. It's just before this year's Pokémon Go Anniversary Celebration however, which will have plenty for trainers to do that week.

Ledyba 100% perfect IV stats in Pokémon Go
This week’s Spotlight Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Ledyba with perfect IV stats.
Once you’ve caught a 100% IV stats Ledyba, you’ll have the choice of evolving it into a Ledian with perfect stats. While they don't exactly hold much sway in the Go Battle League, they can be useful in battling Team Go Rocket Grunts or in raids.
The CP values that correspond to perfect 15/15/15 values are as follows:
- Level 30 (wild CP maximum) - 624 CP
- Level 35 (weather boosted CP maximum) - 676 CP
The wild CP value aligns with your trainer level until you reach Level 30 and, due to the majority of the player base now being above this level, we’ve kept to these values for the sake of simplicity. These values will, however, be different if you’re currently below Level 30.
Is there a shiny Ledyba in Pokémon Go?
Good news - there is a shiny Ledyba in Pokémon Go.
Shiny Ledyba, along with the shiny version of its evolution Ledian, was Ledyba was released as part of the Mega Battle Challenge on September 11th, 2020.
If luck is on your side, you may find a shiny Ledian in the wild, but, if not, then you can obtain one by evolving a shiny Ledyba using 25 Ledyba candy.
Remember - Spotlight Hours only increase the number of Ledyba spawning in the wild, not its shiny rate. This means that, unlike a Community Day, the shiny rate for Ledyba will not increase during this event.
The Season of Timeless Travels has arrived in Pokémon Go! The Along the Routes event is here, bringing Gift Exchange and the A Route to New Friendships quest with it. During it, take the time to try out Routes and Party Play while you're hunting down rare Pokémon, fighting in the Go Battle League or competing in PokéStop Showcases.
What does shiny Ledyba look like?
As you can see in the picture below, shiny Ledyba has a yellow/golden covering. This same look then applies to its evolution.
Other reasons to catch as many Ledyba as possible
- This Spotlight Hour’s bonus is double catch Candy, which means you’ll be rewarded for every Pokémon you catch. Alongside Ledyba, it could be a good excuse to cue up a Mystery Box for catching more Meltan candy.
- If you’re a newcomer, this Spotlight Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Ledyba candy to fully evolve this Pokémon into Ledian.
- Thanks to Ledyba being a Bug-type, catching a bunch during this Spotlight Hour will add progress to your Bug medal. It is Flying-type too, so you'll also work towards your Flying medal.
Spotlight Hour events only last for an hour - 6pm to 7pm (local time) - but don’t worry if you can’t partake in this week’s event. Next week sees Machop take the spotlight on 12th July, with the very useful double catch bonus.
