Pokémon GO Fest 2019 Yokohama attendees had the opportunity to experience the Special Research that was first unveiled at Pokémon GO Fest Chicago 2019. Professor Willow greeted the player upon entering the park and asked for their help in investigating the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi! By making friends, sending Gifts, and returning lost Pokémon to their habitats, Trainers were able to wake up Jirachi from its slumber and catch it. Niantic has been teasing Jirachi’s addition to Pokémon GO. The Mythical Pokémon is now available for all Pokémon GO players via Special Research.
Congratulations to all Trainers who contributed to the third part of the Global Challenge! Pokémon GO Fest Yokohama attendees and Trainers around the world alike worked hard throughout the seven-day time frame and successfully completed Blanche’s Stardust Research Challenge. Professor Willow noticed that Blanche was smiling more and seemed more relaxed as the results came in. Blanche isn’t the type to express emotion, but Professor Willow knows that the Team Mystic leader is feeling immensely proud of you all right now, Trainers.
