Mega Evolution Special Research Story Detailed

In order to access this Special Research story, you have to be level five or higher. Here are the steps for the Special Research story so that you can partake in Mega Evolution yourself:

• First, catch three Pokemon, which includes Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle encounters. In turn, you will gain 500 XP, 200 Stardust, and 10 Poke Balls.
• Then trainers will have the opportunity to pick an evolution of a starter. Mega Energy will be rewarded for the Pokemon that you pick.
• Catch five Pokemon, utilize five berries, and power up your Pokemon five times. Following this, you will receive 200 Mega Energy for the Pokemon you chose, along with a Premium Battle Pass and an encounter with one of the evolved Pokemon.
• Gain five hearts with your buddy, strengthen your Pokemon by powering it up 10 times, and Mega Evolve your Pokemon. From this, you will get 1,000 XP, 100 Mega Energy for the chosen Pokemon, and 600 Stardust.
• Last but not least, you must win a Raid, battle and beat a Team Go Rocket Grunt, and take a picture of your buddy. This will allow you to gain 100 more Mega Energy, 600 Stardust, and 1,000 XP.

Be careful when choosing your evolved starters, as the tasks and benefits are going to be different for each.
