A Troubling Situation Special Research


How do I catch a Ditto? I can’t find it.

Ditto disguises itself as other Pokémon and the Pokémon it can be disguised as changes over time. For the most up to date list of ditto disguises click here.

I need 400 Candies to evolve a Magikarp. What’s the best way to get candy for Magikarp?

Evolving a Magikarp is probably the most challenging task in this set of Special Research. The most consistent way to earn Magikarp candy would have to be to walk one as your buddy.

Alternatively, you can try hunting for Magikarp in a nest or near the water. Both of these methods aren’t guaranteed to work for everyone as it’s difficult to find a nest and there are a heck of a lot of Water-type Pokémon.

So, my best advice would be to just take it easy and eventually you’ll get it.

How do I get a silver/gold Kanto medal?

The Kanto medals require registering a certain number of Kanto region Pokémon in the Pokédex. The silver medal requires 50 Pokémon and the gold medal requires 100 Pokémon.

If you haven’t played for long this might be even harder than evolving a Magikarp. Again, you’ll get there eventually.
