Pokémon GO Sneasel Research Day is now live for most of the world. This limited research can only be completed Saturday and gives numerous reward encounters with Sneasel.

From 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Jan. 30, a Limited Research event featuring Sneasel will be playable. There are 20 tiers with three tasks each to complete, making for a total of 60 tasks. They're not difficult to complete if you play the game as usual. There's an increased chance to encounter a Shiny Sneasel during the event as well.

You'll get a Sneasel encounter each time you complete a task. Completing a set of three tasks gives various rewards like Stardust, XP, Berries, PokéBalls and even a Sinnoh Stone to help evolve your Sneasel into Weavile.

Weavile is one of the game's best Ice and Dark-type attacker, letting it fill two roles at once. It's indispensable for many Legendary Raid bosses. You'll end up with over 60 Sneasel by the end of the event. That should provide more than enough options for a strong Weavile candidate.

If you haven't added Weavile to your team yet, this Limited Research is a great opportunity to get one of the game's best Pokémon.
