Niantic Announces Marrill Limited Research Day

Submit Feedback or Error

You know, for some odd reason I get the feeling that Niantic really wants to promote Azumarill recently! 

Marill is coming with its own Limited Research line soon. Why does this feel vaguely familiar...? The goal of this event will be to complete specially assigned research tasks as many times as possible within a set period of time, with the reward for each being an encounter with Marill with an increased Shiny rate. This will be an outstanding chance for players to farm Marill Candy XL, and get ready to bring their own Azumarill into the Go Battle League.
