Pokémon GO has added some easy Limited Research tasks to make up for recent bugs.

Many Pokémon GO players encountered a problem when trying to evolve a Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowking. Instead, players ended up with a Galarian Slowbro, despite following all of the requirements. Niantic has acknowledged the issue, which has since been fixed, and have implemented some easy Limited Research tasks as an apology.

These research tasks are designed to be very simple to complete, offering players everything they need in order to get their Galarian Slowking. Here's a list of all of the tasks.

What Are the New Limited Research Tasks for Galarian Slowking in Pokemon GO?

The new Limited Research tasks are as follows:

  • Catch a Pokémon: 10 Poke Ball reward
  • Catch Three Pokémon: 50 Slowpoke candy reward
  • Catch Five Pokémon: Incense reward

Completing all three tasks awards players with 1000 Stardust and a mystery Pokémon encounter. It'll come as no shock that this myster encounter is none other than a Galarian Slowpoke. This is somewhat more satisfying way to rectify a bug, allowing players to still earn their desired creature rather than just handing it over. Granted, players will still need to catch 30 Psychic-type Pokémon with Galarian Slowpoke as their buddy. With plenty to find in the wild right now, this hopefully shouldn't be too time-consuming.

These Limited Research tasks are only available to seven days, so work fast if you want to get your Galarian Slowking.
