Fans of Generation II’s Dark- and Ice-type Sneasel will be happy to hear the Pokémon’s getting a moment in the spotlight! Pokémon GO has announced a special Limited Research event centered around it on the official blog:
Sneasel Limited Research
Get ready for a Limited Research event featuring Sneasel!
On Saturday, January 30, 2021, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time, you can complete event-exclusive Field Research tasks that lead to encounters with Sneasel. If you’re lucky, you might even encounter a Shiny Sneasel! You can also look forward to event-exclusive Timed Research.
New Timed Research
From Tuesday, January 26, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Sunday, February 7, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time, you can complete a Team GO Rocket–themed Timed Research line that’ll lead to an encounter with a Ho-Oh that knows Earthquake. Good luck in completing this research challenge, Trainers!
A rather short update, but one to keep in mind as you plan the rest of your January! Let us know what Pokémon you’d like to get a Limited Research event focused on in the comments or on Discord!
