Pokemon Go Launching Global Challenge This Summer

Pokemon Go is unleashing a new Global Challenge this summer. Players will have to complete Research Tasks before they can unlock a new, Shiny Pokemon.

Pokemon Go Global Challenges often coincide with live events. This year’s Global Challenge will take place from June 13th to June 16th, the same weekend as Pokemon Go Fest Chicago.

“Each in-game team will be tasked with completing 15 million research tasks over the weekend, with Pokemon Go Fest attendees tasked with completing 1 million research tasks,” Comicbook.com reports. “Completing this weekend’s Global Challenges will lead to players earning 2x Catch Candy, a guaranteed 1 Rare Candy per raid, 1/2 Hatch Distance, and 2x Hatch Candy bonuses from June 18 to June 25. If all the challenges are completed, Pokemon Go will also hold a Raikou Raid Day event in which players can battle Raikou and possibly encounter a Shiny Raikou.”

Similar Global Challenges will be held worldwide this summer, including events in Germany and Japan.

“If these Global Challenges are successful, players can unlock bonuses like 3x Catch XP and 3x Catch Stardust along with Entei and Suicune Raid Days that offer the chance to encounter Shiny variants of those Pokemon,” Comicbook.com reports.

These Global Challenges allow players to participate, even if they can’t attend in-person. By completing Research Tasks this weekend, they can unlock major bonuses.
