The Pokémon Detective Pikachu event has now started in Pokémon GO, and, with that, there are movie-inspired Field Research tasks to complete for rewards.
The event runs from Tuesday 7th – Friday 17th May 2019, and, as players have started to discover, the Field Research is more challenging than those that developer Niantic usually prepares.
That’s because they are riddles that relate to the upcoming movie and the trailers that have been releasing leading up to it opening in cinemas around the world this week.
These Field Research tasks challenge you to catch a Seed Pokémon, a Water-type Pokémon carried in a backpack, or the Fire-type Evolution of Eevee. And, while those that know about the pocket monster series inside and out, there are many out there that have been left scratching their heads. Well, we’re here to help!
The solutions to the four Field Research task riddles and their respective rewards are:
Catch the Seed Pokémon that is seen walking in a river
This Field Research task requires that you catch Bulbasaur, rewarding you with the chance to catch Treecko.
Catch the Fire-type Evolution of Eevee
This Field Research task requires that you catch Flareon, which will reward you with the chance to catch Arcanine.
Catch the Water-type Pokémon carried in a backpack
This Field Research task requires that you catch Psyduck, rewarding you with the chance to catch Magikarp.
Catch 10 Jigglypuff, Aipom or Snubbull
This Field Research task is self-explanatory, but will reward you with the chance to catch Ditto – who will appear as a Zubat.
