Zygarde has finally made it into Pokémon Go and can be obtained in a free Special Research story available to all players of the mobile game. You can claim the questline simply by logging into the game at the moment, after which you can work on the missions without any time limit.

From A to Zygarde not only allows you to get a Zygarde, you’re tasked with engaging with the brand-new Routes feature as well. Routes are paths made by players, which can be followed and completed by other users to get special rewards.

Here are all Pokémon Go From A to Zygarde Research tasks and their rewards.

You may need some patience at first, as it takes a while for a submitted Route to be approved.

Keep in mind that the Routes feature is brand-new and roll-out of it is slow, so some players may not even have access to it yet. It also takes at least 24 hours for a new Route to be approved by Niantic once it’s been submitted, so if you’re the first in your area to get access to the feature and want to create a Route you should lay your plans with some patience.
