Pokemon Go is holding a new Limited Research event starring Sneasel. The event takes place this Saturday, January 30, from 8 AM to 10 PM local time and features limited-time Field Research tasks that lead to encounters with the Sharp Claw Pokemon. Developer Niantic also says that players will have a chance to encounter Shiny Sneasel during the event.
Additionally, Niantic has announced it is rolling out a new line of Timed Research tasks. This line will be available from January 26 to February 7 and is themed after Team Go Rocket. If you’re able to complete the Timed Research while it’s available, you’ll earn a chance to catch a Ho-Oh that knows Earthquake. You can read more details on the official Pokemon Go website.
Trainers, we’ve got some news that’s nothing to sneeze at!
