Not open for further replies.
  • Staff
As part of its continuing Sustainability Week, Niantic has announced free Special Research for all Pokémon GO players, offering everyone who completes it an opportunity to encounter and catch the Mythical Pokémon Shaymin. A special Limited Research Day focused on the Stunfisk will also be running in-game this weekend.

Special Research: Grass and Gratitude
This Special Research sees Trainers assisting Professor Willow in tracking down Shaymin after it's been spotted inn the area. The gratitude that Trainers show on the way will be their key to finding this elusive Mythical Pokémon. This Special Research is releasing worldwide from April 20th, at 10:00am local time, as part of the continuing Sustainability Week events, and will be available to all trainers for free. All Trainers who complete this Special Research will be awarded with an encounter with Land Forme Shaymin.

Trainers who participated in the Pokémon GO Fest 2022 will be eligible to access and complete this Special Research, and will have the opportunity to earn an encounter with Shaymin even if they previously caught it during its debut at that event.
