Everything you Need to Know About Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto

First up is the Masterwork Research introduction, which will be unlocked once players have completed the Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto Special research.

“After completing the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto Special Research, you’ll unlock a new kind of research called Masterwork Research, which will take determination and skill to complete. Just completing the first page will require that you receive your platinum Kanto medal. From there, you’ll have to reach level 40, catch 30 Pokémon of each type, spin 151 unique PokéStops, walk 151 km, and more—an incredibly special encounter with Shiny Mew lies at the end of this adventure!”

This is only one facet of the event, though. There will be ten collection challenges throughout the week to complete as well. These can be done through

  • Trade
  • Raid
  • Research
  • Evolve

Players will need to collect all of the original 151 Pokemon to complete the event. You can find the event schedule below.

The event will be divided into five different location-themed hour blocks, during which Pokémon from the corresponding Collection Challenge will be appearing in the wild! Each location’s hour block will happen twice during the event. The last two hours of the event will include all Pokémon from the prior hours—this will be a great chance to look for any Pokémon you missed earlier in the day! All times are local time.
