Pokémon GO Snubbull Limited Research is your chance to find a Shiny Snubbull.

The Limited Research will be available from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on May 9 in your local time. There are over 50 different tasks that could be available, with a Snubbull encounter as a reward every other page. Each task roughly involves doing three of something like catching or evolving Pokémon, and the tasks tend to repeat.

Pokémon GO Snubbull Limited Research: How to Complete

The tasks will be from among the following in various combinations:

  • Power up Pokémon 3 times
  • Give your buddy 3 treats
  • Catch 3 Pokémon
  • Make 3 Nice Throws
  • Make 3 Great Throws
  • Make 3 Curveball Throws
  • Battle another Trainer
  • Use 3 Pinap Berries while catching Pokémon
  • Use 3 Nanab Berries while catching Pokémon
  • Evolve 3 Pokémon

Doing three will complete a page, and every other page will reward you with a Snubbull encounter. There is an increased chance to get a Shiny Snubbull during the event as well.

Evolving Snubbull into Granbull gives you a surprisingly strong Fairy type attacker. It learns a good mix of attacks, able to use Dark and Fighting moves as well to cover a variety of threats. Granbull is one of the less memorable Pokémon. Give it a try, as there's a bit of style to use an underdog.
