RESEARCH DAY TIPS & TRICKS

  • Go to a place with a high density of PokéStops (cities, parks, …) to spin as many Limited Research tasks as possible.
  • Try to collect 3 of the same Research tasks to efficiently complete all 3 of them at once.
  • Run a Star Piece for some extra Stardust!
  • If you don’t have a lot of Star Pieces, stack your Field Research and catch all your Minccino on 1 Star Piece (preferably when a Stardust Bonus is active).
  • If you stack, remember you can only stack a total of 100 Research encounters! 
  • Enjoy your day and conduct some research!
