  • REWARDS: 3000 XP, Alolan Meowth encounter

Page Six of Seven

  • Complete 7 Field Research tasks: 10 Great Balls
  • Win 1 raid: Houndoom encounter
  • Catch 5 different species of Dark-type Pokémon: Alolan Grimer encounter
  • REWARDS: 4000 XP, Absol encounter

Page Seven of Seven

  • Purify 10 Shadow Pokémon: 1 Poffin
  • Defeat a Team GO Rocket Leader 3 times: Galarian Zigzagoon encounter
  • Catch 12 Shadow Pokémon: Larvitar encounter
  • REWARDS: 5000 Stardust, Deino encounter

All right, well that seems quite substantial! We're getting some great species here including Absol, Larvitar, and Deino, the latter of which is one of the rarest and most sought after in the game… and it does come Shiny. This is far more intensive than last week's research and will take quite a lot of battling Team GO Rocket, but remember that in doing so, you will be contributing to Pokémon GO's Global Challenge to unlock Shiny Galarian Zigzagoon and triple catch XP for the second half of the event.
