Week 3: Friendship-based challenge

In the third Pokémon GO Fest weekly challenge, it’ll be time to celebrate what Pokémon GO is really all about: friendship. This challenge will ask you to take a moment to appreciate your pals, like your Buddy Pokémon and fellow Trainers! Send Gifts to friends, and don’t forget to attach a Gift sticker, too—it might make your friends’ day. This challenge’s Timed Research will be available until July 22—just a few days before Pokémon GO Fest 2020 starts!

The Timed Research will be accompanied by an event that celebrates summer! Summer Style Pikachu will be appearing in the wild and hatching from Eggs, and Petilil, the Bulb Pokémon, will be making its Pokémon GO debut.
