After recently unveiling the Psychic Spectacular event earlier this month, Niantic’s back with more events. Besides the Test Your Mettle event, Trainers will participate in this month's Pokémon GO Community Day, featuring Roggenrola, the Mantle Pokémon.
Alongside catching Roggenrola, Trainers can also participate in a limited-time event during Community Day. Titled Rock ‘n’ Roll Special Research Story, this exclusive, unlockable event features missions Trainers can complete acquiring resources and even a fully evolved Roggenrola.
Pokémon GO Rock ‘n’ Roll Special Research Story Challenges
Trainers eager to participate in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Special Research Story can purchase a ticket for $1 in the in-game shop during this month’s Community Day, which kicks off on 18th September 2022, and lasts from 5 pm to 10 pm local time.

The Roggenrola Special Research Story is divided into four challenges Trainers need to complete to make the most out of the event.
The first three challenges comprise nine challenges that seem reasonably easy to finish for Trainers cruising their neighborhood during the Roggenrola Community Day.
The last step only requires Pokémon GO players to claim the rewards after completing the other challenges.
