Tasks For Ultra Unlock Part Two: Time Research In Pokémon GO

The Ultra Unlock Part Two: Space event is now live in Pokémon GO. It has introduced Shiny Palkia to Tier Five raids, Shiny Heracross to Tier Three raids, and has made available a selection of species that are normally locked to specific regions. One of the most prominent reactions to the event within the Pokémon GO community is disappointment over the fact that Heracross will be locked to raids and will not feature in the wild during this event. Will the Timed Research offer any otherwise raid-exclusive encounters to those who may not want to spend a pass? Let's take a look.

Unfortunately, those hoping for a Heracross encounter are going to come up short once completing the Timed Research. Overall, if I'm being honest, this doesn't seem like an impressive selection of rewards. Everything we're getting here is available in the wild or will be at a later date. While I personally don't mind raiding Heracross, including an encounter with the newly released Shiny feels like a no-brainer.
