Next weekend, Pokémon GO is launching a new 'Limited Research' event style, and things are kicking off with a particularly elusive monster to snag for your collection.
On 19th January, players will be able to complete special Field Research tasks that all focus on one particular Pokémon - Feebas. Known for its unique evolution into Milotic (in which it must be walked as your buddy Pokémon for 20km before gobbling up 100 Feebas candy) this Pokémon will become available in encounters triggered by those featured tasks; if you're lucky, you might even find a shiny version of the monster.
It would appear that this will be a new, regular thing for 2019, joining the already-popular Community Days (the next of which takes place tomorrow), and will likely play out in a similar way to last year's Squirtle Squad bonus tasks.
If you want to join in the fun, here are the times you'll need:
- Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: Jan. 19, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. UTC (GMT +0)
- The Americas and Greenland: Jan. 19, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PST (GMT −8)
- Asia-Pacific: Jan. 20, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. JST (GMT +9)
