Pokémon Go Sizeable Surprises: all Research Tasks

Plus: World of Wonders Special Research continues

A fresh Pokémon Go event begins on April 4, 2024, at 10am local time: Sizeable Surprises is a great opportunity to hone your throwing skills, as it provides a double XP bonus for Nice, Great, and Excellent Throws – and with massive Pokémon like Wailmer, Onix, and Snorlax getting a boosted spawn rate, you’ll hit plenty of those. Add a Lucky Egg and Incense into the equation, and you’ll level up in no time.

For anyone already at the level cap, Sizeable Surprises has plenty of other things to offer – Shiny Wimpod is available for the first time, as are the Shiny versions of Kartana and Celesteela. New event-exclusive Field Research and Collection Challenges are at your disposal as well. Plus, the next part of the World of Wonders Special Research has been unlocked.
