Trainers will be faced with two important decisions while conducting their Special Research.

Please note: it won’t be possible to change your selections, so be sure to make your choices carefully!

Personalize your event experience!

Choose between Relaxed, Standard, and Master difficulty levels for your Special Research!

The difficulty level you select will affect which sticker you receive as a reward, but will otherwise not change your Special Research rewards.

How do you like to play Pokémon GO?

Select the gameplay focus you’d prefer - either Catch, Explore, or Battle - and certain Special Research tasks will change accordingly.
