Pokemon Go Feebas Research Tasks, Event Start Time, Date, Shiny Feebas

There’s a brand new type of research for Pokemon Go trainers to complete. The first run of limited research centers around fish pokemon Feebas. Here’s everything you need to know.

Pokemon Go is host to a selection of Research Tasks each month, challenging players to complete specific objectives for XP, Pokemon, Stardust and Candy. Niantic has just added in some more Research in the form of Limited Research, timed Research events centered around a specific Pokemon. The first run of Limited Research focuses on the fish pokemon Feebas, with a chance to catch a Shiny Feebas offered on the day. In this Pokemon Go Feebas Limited Research Guide, we’ll outline all of the details you need to know. From start date, to info on availability, we’ve got you covered.

For more on Pokemon Go, be sure to visit our Pokemon Go Guides Hub. It’s full of useful info on the game, from info on current events, to a breakdown of this month’s research tasks.

Pokemon Go Feebas Event

Niantic is taking a slightly different tact with its latest Research event. While previously pokemon event encounters have been based on spawns, the new limited research revolves around research tasks. The first of these Research events focuses on Feebas, the water-type pokemon from gen 3. Let’s take a look at the key info we have so far.

Pokemon Go Feebas Event Start Date and Time

Pokemon Go players will get the chance to bag themselves a Feebas on Jan 19. We’ve listed the full schedule for the day event below:

  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: Jan. 19, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. UTC (GMT +0)
  • The Americas and Greenland: Jan. 19, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PST (GMT −8)
  • Asia-Pacific: Jan. 20, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. JST (GMT +9)

Pokemon Go Shiny Feebas

The main blog post over on the Pokemon Go website (https://pokemongolive.com/post/fieldresearch-jan2019) mentions that players who complete the Feebas Research tasks will get the chance to encounter a Feebas. This means that Shiny Feebas will also be up for grabs. You’ll just need to keep facing Feebas until you draw a shiny one, though it’s likely that the odds will be upped slightly on the day. You can check out Shiny Feebas in the image embedded below (via Chrales)

How to Start Pokemon Go Feebas Research

The Pokemon Go Feebas event runs on Jan 19, 2019. On the day, players will need to spin Photo Discs at Pokestops to obtain the Research Tasks required to get a Feebas. Any Pokestop will do, so it should be pretty easy to start.

Feebas Research Will Stay in Your Quest List

While the Pokemon Go Feebas event is limited, you will have a fair bit of time to complete it. You only have to spin a Pokestop on the day to get the research, after which you can complete it whenever you want.

Pokemon Go Feebas Research Tasks

Thanks to serial leaker @chrales over on Twitter, we have some idea as to the exact research tasks you'll need to complete to earn a Feebas encounter. We've listed the Feebas Research ^Tasks we know about so far below, though due to the fact these are datamined from the game, be aware that they are subject to change for the actual event.

  • Make Great Throws
  • Hatch 1 Egg
  • Earn 1 Buddy Candy
  • Make Nice Throws

That’s all of the info we have so far for the Pokemon Go Feebas Limited Research Event. For more on Pokemon Go, why not check out this month’s Field Research. You should also head over to our Pokemon Go Community Day Guide for info on upcoming events.
