Special Research: Chasing Legends
Another Special Research story will be available featuring none other than Rhi from the GO Ultra Recon Squad. Professor Willow has tasked Rhi with researching Hoenn folklore about the Red and Blue Orbs - items which are said to have some connection to Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon.

Timed Research: GO for a Spin
By spinning PokéStops, Trainers can receive Timed Research tasks that rewards with encounters with Spinda, the Spot Panda Pokémon.

Unique Field Research tasks
Trainers will be able to collect Mega Energy and catch Ghost-type Pokémon by completing new Field Research tasks. Trainers with a ticket will have a boosted chance of receiving this research.

Primal Surge Field Research

Trainers will experience the power of Primal Reversion for the first time in Pokémon GO, with Groudon and Kyogre bringing the might of the earth and the sea with them. Ticket-holding Trainers in Las Vegas will have additional opportunities to complete Primal Surge Field Research leading to encounters with Primal Groudon or Primal Kyogre.

Masterwork Research: Wish Granted
Ticket-holding Trainers in Las Vegas will be able to access the Masterwork Research with fewer steps leading to an encounter with Shiny Jirachi. Attendees with the shorter Masterwork Research will not be able to purchase the longer global Masterwork Research.

Global Event Details

Trainers participating in the global event will encounter the same Pokémon in the wild and in raids, and hatch the same Pokémon from Eggs, as in the event in Las Vegas.

In addition, additional One-Star Raids will also be available which feature the following Pokémon:
  • Treecko ⁂
  • Torchic ⁂
  • Mudkip ⁂
As with the Las Vegas event, all Trainers will also be able to pick between a Ruby and Sapphire badge, with the team picked shaping certain aspects of the event. Trainers who completed the Las Vegas event will continue with the badge they had previously selected.

Special, Field, and Masterwork Research tasks
The majority of research tasks included in the Las Vegas event will be available for Trainers worldwide during the global event. This includes the Special Research story Chasing Legends, the Primal Surge Field Research, and the Wish Granted Masterwork Research, but does not include the GO for a Spin Timed Research.
