Investigate a Mysterious Energy has been out for days now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t offer you a helping hand! In this Special Research Guide, you will find all the stages, as well as all the task and stage rewards! Let’s take a look at how to get your hands on Victini, the Victory Pokémon!
|INVESTIGATE A MYSTERIOUS ENERGY (1/6)|
|Catch 30 Pokémon||x3|
|Spin 30 PokéStops or Gyms||1,000 XP|
|Send 10 Gifts to Friends||x1,000|
* x30 * x1,000
Easy tasks in Stage 1, and they come with not very exciting rewards. They’re free none the less, and who knows, you may encounter a Shiny Ralts! Let’s hurry up to the next stage!
|INVESTIGATE A MYSTERIOUS ENERGY (2/6)|
|Catch 30 Psychic-type Pokémon|
|Catch 30 Fire-type Pokémon|
|Hatch 3 Eggs||x1|
1,000 XP * * x30
Finding 30 Psychic- and Fire- Types can be difficult for some Trainers, if they don’t live in a biome where they spawn often. Your best bet may be to visit a nest. The free Egg Incubator is a nice little reward though. This stage might take a little longer than the first one, but all in all, not that hard.
|INVESTIGATE A MYSTERIOUS ENERGY (3/6)|
|Take a Snapshot of your Buddy||x1|
|Earn 3 Candies walking your Buddy||x1,000|
|Power up Pokémon 3 times||x3|
x3 * * x1,000
Back to easy peasy lemon squeezy in stage 3. We recommend changing your Buddy Pokémon to one that only requires walking 1km for a Candy.
|INVESTIGATE A MYSTERIOUS ENERGY (4/6)|
|Win 3 Gym Battles||1,000 XP|
|Defeat 3 Team GO Rocket Grunts||x1|
|Win 3 Raids||x1,000|
x3 * / x20 * x3
If you are not willing to spend Remote Raid Passes or Premium Battle Passes, this stage might take a day or 3 to complete. Again, not that hard though!
It’s important to note that, if you already caught Victini during GO Fest 2020, you will receive 20 Victini Candy instead of another Victini encounter.
|INVESTIGATE A MYSTERIOUS ENERGY (5/6)|
|Take a Snapshot of Victini||x20|
|Catch 30 different species of Pokémon||x1|
|Send 3 gifts to Friends||1,000 XP|
x5 * x3,000 * x1
Woohoow, Victini Stickers! They were rare during the GO Fest weekend, but now you can get your hands on a few anyway! With an Incense and Star Piece as rewards for pretty easy tasks, this stage is one of the better ones!
|INVESTIGATE A MYSTERIOUS ENERGY (6/6)|
|Claim Reward||3,000 XP|
|Claim Reward||3,000 XP|
x1 * x20 * x1
Another 20 Candy, and you don’t even have to anything for it? We’ll take it! Easy claim, decent rewards.
SWEET SWEET VICTORY!
Victini is a cute lil’ bugger! But, apart from being one of the most adorable Pokémon in existence, it’s also quite useful thanks to its typing and its Charged Move, V-Create. While some of us already had Victini from Day 2 of Pokémon GO Fest 2020, those who didn’t now get access to the Victory Pokémon. While this Special Research could potentially take you a while, it is highly worth doing whether you already have the lil’ fella or not.
