There's not much time left to complete Pokémon GO's Exploration Challenge! As a part of the Safari Zone event at Goyang, South Korea, there is free limited-time research available to all players for free. The event started on Saturday, Sept. 24 at 8 a.m. local time and ends on Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. local time.

This Exploration Challenge is centered around the perfume Pokémon, Spritzee. This generation-six Pokémon can be proven useful in battle. Though it does not have the highest CP, having a max CP of 536, its fairy typing makes it strong against powerful dragon, fighting, and dark Pokémon, rendering it only weak to steel and poison types. In order to evolve Spritzee into its final form, Aromatisse, trainers must use 50 Spritzee Candy. However, trainers are able to skip this by activating an incense after making Spritzee their buddy Pokémon.
