Chasing Legends

From February 25 to February 26, Trainers can start participating in the Pokemon GO Tour: Hoenn event around the world, and that means new challenges. The main challenges are tied to the Chasing Legends Special Research that allows you to choose a branching path.

Depending on the path you choose, you will receive different encounter rewards as you progress through the research challenges. Of course, you do not want to pick the path with rewards you will not like, so we are here to cover all the Special Research branches in Chasing Legends and the rewards tied to them.
