Grass and Gratitude

Shaymin Special Research

The Special Research story Grass and Gratitude will be available to all Trainers for free starting during Sustainability Week, starting April 20, 2023, 10:00 a.m. local time! Trainers who complete the Special Research will earn an encounter with the Mythical Pokémon Shaymin*.

It turns out that Shaymin has been sighted in the area, but Professor Willow needs your help to track it down! Assist Professor Willow, and perhaps the gratitude you show on the way will be key to finding this elusive Pokémon.

* Trainers who caught Shaymin during Pokémon GO Fest 2022 will still be able to access and complete the Special Research, and they will have the opportunity to encounter Shaymin again.
