Here are listed all tasks and rewards for Special Research campaigns.

A Mythical DiscoveryEdit

A Mythical Discovery is the first series of Special Research tasks. It is split into eight parts with sets of three Research tasks and rewards. Each Research task, within a step, awards some XP and completing all three will reward a Trainer with Stardust or Items. The final task is to catch Mew, the Mythical Pokémon from the Kanto region.

First partEdit

The first part of the series of Special Research tasks is introduced by Professor Willow in the following dialog.

Trainer, how are you? It's been a while, hasn't it? You've become quite the Trainer!

I wanted to ask for your help. As you know, I study Pokémon and their habitats. I've learned a lot over the years, but recently, I've found some hints of something mysterious.

I was wondering if you would help me investigate what's going on.

You will? That's great!

First things first, let's calibrate my instruments to your area.

Could you please complete the following research tasks?

Task Reward
Spin 5 PokéStops or Gyms. 500 XP
Catch 10 Pokémon. 500 XP
Transfer 5 Pokémon. 500 XP
Rewards for completing whole set
10x Great Ball Great Ball
1x Incubator Limited Incubator
3x Lure Module Lure Module

Second partEdit

The second part of the series of Special Research tasks is available after the first part has been completed and is introduced by Professor Willow in the following dialog.

Great. Thanks, Trainer! Now I should be able to detect anything out of the ordinary.

I believe we need to be on the lookout for a Mythical Pokémon! Mythical Pokémon are extremely rare and unique, and many consider their existence to be mere rumor.

Could you help get my equipment set up around your local habitat? This'll be a great time to take your buddy out to explore a bit and hatch some Eggs!

Please complete the following research tasks.

Task Reward
Earn 2 Candies walking with your Buddy. 1000 XP
Make 10 Great Throws. 1000 XP

Third partEdit

The third part of the series of Special Research tasks is available after the second part has been completed and is introduced by Professor Willow in the following dialog.

Incredible! This confirms my initial suspicion. I think we're seeing evidence of Mew!

A Pokémon found in a jungle far to the south that was thought to have been extinct. It is so rare that many experts say that it is a myth. Only a few people have seen it worldwide. Apparently, it appears only to those people who are pure of heart and have a strong desire to see it.

My colleagues in Kanto, including my instructor, Professor Oak, spent a long time studying Mew. It looks like our findings match theirs!

According to our research, Mew was said to be observed using moves of all kinds. This observation has led some of us to say that Mew is the ancestor of all Pokémon!

Perhaps by studying Pokémon in battle, we'll learn more!

Please perform the following research tasks.

Task Reward
Reach level 15. 1500 XP
Battle in 2 raids. 1500 XP

Great work, Trainer! This will help point us in the right direction.

Did you know Mew is said to hold the genetic codes of all Pokémon? Mew's secrets could be a link to understanding the mystery of Pokémon growth and Evolution!

Let's study some Pokémon Evolution to learn more about Mew!

Please perform these research tasks for me.

Amazing. Just amazing! Isn't Evolution wondrous? I learn something new every time I see it!

With the data we've collected so far, I should be able to pinpoint Mew's location! It looks like...

Yes, it looks like Mew has visited your area recently! Hmm... Interesting. If that's the case, someone should have reported a sighting...

Whatever is causing it, the local park habitat here is quite disrupted by all the changes.

The local Pokémon have become confused… It looks like they’re acting more aggressive and territorial!
