MASTERWORK RESEARCH

Upon completing the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto Special Research, a new kind of Research will be unlocked. Masterwork Research will be different from Timed and Special Research in that it will take a lot more effort to complete it. For instance, completing page 1 of the Masterwork Research requires you to obtain the platinum Kanto medal.

At the conclusion of the Masterwork Research, Trainers will have the opportunity to encounter shiny Mew!

Note: We will update this section as reports of the Masterwork Research Tasks/Rewards start coming in!

There is no deadline to complete either the Masterwork Research.

KANTO-MANIA

We have informally nicknamed the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto event “Kanto Fest” because of the similarities this event shares with GO Fest this past year. There is a LOT to do during this event. Hopefully, this Infopedia helps break it all down for you, and you don’t get overwhelmed.

As always, remember to follow your local health and safety mandates and stay socially distanced! Stay safe, Fam!
