Professor Willow's Global Challenge

In addition, Professor Willow's Global Research Challenge 2019 will begin its final part with Blanche's Challenge. If and when it is completed(25 million research tasks for each team Globally and 2 million tasks at GO Fest Yokohama), players will unlock the following bonuses:

  • 3x Catch Stardust
  • 3000 Stardust per raid
  • 3x Hatch Stardust
  • 1-hour Star Pieces

This bonus will go from August 13th to August 20th, 2019. Completing this final part of the challenge will unlock Suicune as a 3-hour raid event with its shiny form available.

 An "even more exciting bonus" will be unlocked as well that has yet to be revealed yet. Last year, the bonus included regionals being included in Alolan eggs, and the first appearance of Mewtwo as the raid boss for a month. All three legendary birds were also available for a week with their shiny forms.  

Research tasks begin counting towards the event starting at 8 PM CST tonight, August 5th.
