  • Explore for 1km: Encounter with Spritzee
  • Explore for 2km: Encounter with Spritzee
  • Explore for 3km: Encounter with Spritzee
  • Explore for 4km: Encounter with Spritzee
  • Explore for 5km: Encounter with Spritzee

To access the Safari Zone: Goyang Timed Research challenges, Trainers can navigate to the Today View category within the Event page in-app. Here, they can view all the challenges and claim each challenge’s rewards and the Timed Research event rewards. Additionally, Trainers can find the Field Research and Special Research Tasks within the Today View category from the Event page. 

Completing the above-mentioned exploration Timed Research challenges will earn Trainers unique rewards. Not only will they earn 1,000 Stardust, which is vital for powering up Pokémon in PvP encounters, but they’ll get a bonus encounter with Spritzee with a possibility of encountering its Shiny form.

Finally, should Trainers experience technical difficulties accessing the challenges or claiming rewards, they can refer to the official Niantic Support Twitter account and the FAQ Support page for the latest news and updates.
