This year’s Fashion Week has arrived, and with it comes some new Field Research tasks. Here’s the Fashion Challenge this week, and all the tasks that come with it.

Fashion Week is an event in Pokemon GO that focuses on stylish Pokemon and will feature the debut of Furfrou, the Poodle Pokemon among other cool additions. In addition to Furfrou, Fashion Challengers, and some week-long challenges, this event also has Field Research tasks for trainers to occupy themselves with. Collect them all and complete them to earn cool rewards. These tasks can only be collected during Fashion Week, which will begin on Sept. 21 at 10 a.m. and end on Sept. 28 at 8 p.m., all times in the player’s local time zone.

Here are the Field Research challenges this time around and what they reward:

  • Take a snapshot of Butterfree, Shinx or Blitzle in the wild, rewards a Costume Sneasel encounter
  • Make 3 Nice Throws in a row, rewards a Furfrou encounter
  • Make 2 Great Throws in a row, rewards a Frillish encounter
  • Make 4 Curveball Throws in a row, rewards a Costume Blitzle

The highlights here are the Costumed Pokemon, as they don little accessories that are kind of cute. Keep in mind that these tasks can be completed after Fashion Week ends, as they can be saved into the player’s field research collection.

Fashion Week will run from Sept. 21 to Sept. 28, so players are advised to collect these missions before the event ends.
