Pokemon GO: All Mega Discovery Special Research Tasks and RewardsAdrian IglesiasGame Rant – Feed


Pokemon GO has finally introduced Mega Evolution, and with it comes a new set of Special Research tasks designed to give players a running start on the new features. “A Mega Discovery” is available in-game now, and offers players a crash-course on Mega Pokemon and Evolution.

The Special Research challenge is titled “A Mega Discovery,” and is split up into four stages. Players may be tempted to think that this “discovery” somehow leads to Victini, the next Mythical Pokemon, but that is unfortunately not the case. Completing this set of research tasks will simply equip a player with the tools necessary to Mega Evolve a Beedrill in Pokemon GO.

As stated above, “A Mega Discovery” consists of four stages, which present Pokemon Trainers with the following Research Tasks:

  • Send 3 Gifts to Friends – 10 Poke Balls
  • Catch 15 Magikarp – 10 Super Potions
  • Catch 15 Pokemon – 25 Beedrill Mega Energy

Rewards: Weedle Encounter, 3 Rare Candies, 5,000 XP

  • Power up Pokemon 5 Times – 20 Weedle Candy
  • Evolve 1 Weedle – 2,000 Stardust
  • Defeat 3 Team GO Rocket Grunts – Premium Raid Pass

Rewards: 100 Beedrill Mega Energy, Charge TM, 5,000 XP

  • Win a Raid – 6 Revives
  • Battle in a Mega Raid – 2 Silver Pinap Berries
  • Take a snapshot with your buddy – 6 Hyper Potions

Rewards: 25 Beedrill Mega Energy, 3 Rare Candies, 5,000 XP

  • Claim Reward – 1,500 Stardust
  • Claim Reward – 1,500 Stardust
  • Claim Reward – 1,500 Stardust

Rewards: 25 Beedrill Mega Energy, 1,500 Stardust, 5,000 XP


Thankfully, this set of tasks is on the simpler side, and can realistically be completed within a day or two without spending coins, or having to consider a potential Pokemon GO subscription service. Players who act quickly will be able to add a powerful Mega Pokemon to their battle teams without much trouble, but, anyone hoping to get their hands on a flashier Mega Pokemon, like Charizard X, will have to put in some extra scout work.

Players should also note that only one Pokemon can be Mega Evolved at a time in Pokemon GO. Once another Pokemon is Mega Evolved, the already-evolved Pokemon will revert to its normal state, which is analogous to usual Mega Evolution mechanics. And although the pool of available Mega Pokemon remains rather small, players can at least celebrate the fact that Shiny Mega Pokemon were introduced from the get-go, rather than later on as some part of cumbersome event. If there’s anything that holds true across the board of Pokemon fandom, it’s that Shiny Pokemon are never unwelcome.

Pokemon GO is available now on the App Store and Google Play.
