Paldea is coming to Pokémon Go and A Paldean Adventure kicks off the introduction of critters from the region featured in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. This event runs from September 5, 2023, at 10am local time until September 10, 2023, at 10am local time and contains the Ultra Unlock bonuses players earned at GO Fest 2023 as well as Field Research Tasks, a Timed Research, a Special Research, and some Collection Challenges.

Paldean starters Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly, as well as Lechonk – star of many memes – will be available in Pokémon Go for the first time during this event. Lechonk, unlike the starters, can be found in its Shiny version. As usual, the tasks featured in this time window will help you add them to your collection.

Here are all research tasks for A Paldean Adventure in Pokémon Go.
