In Pokémon GO's most recent Exploration Challenge, for every 1km explored, trainers earn an encounter with Spritzee. The start of the event was Saturday, Sept. 24, and, since then, there has been confusion about how to explore 1km in Pokémon GO. With only a day left to get your hands on the Perfume Pokémon, look no further, all of your answers are here.

Free limited-time research has recently been made available to all players in light of the Safari Zone event at Goyang, South Korea. Ending on Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. local time, players have the opportunity to catch a shiny Spritzee.

How to Explore 1km in Pokémon GO?

Time to put on some good athletic shoes and go outside! The answer is pretty straightforward. To receive credit for exploring, trainers just have to walk. For these tasks, trainers do not need to have a Pokémon buddy by their side, they simply need to walk the distance. To complete the limited-time research challenge, trainers must do the following for the respective rewards:

  • Explore (Walk)1km: Encounter with Spritzee
  • Explore (Walk) 2km: Encounter with Spritzee
  • Explore (Walk) 3km: Encounter with Spritzee
  • Explore (Walk) 4km: Encounter with Spritzee
  • Explore (Walk) 5km: Encounter with Spritzee

This challenge will take a decent amount of time, with 5km equating to a little more than three miles, so it is best to come prepared with proper equipment. After completing all of these tasks, trainers will earn an additional encounter with Spritzee along with 1000 XP and 1000 Stardust.
