Timed research tasks and rewards for Pokémon GO ‘Tricky Pokmon’ (“Today” menu)

A new month means thanks to the Tricky Pokémon Timed Research in the Pokémon GO. The start is part of the April Fool’s Day event, but mostly because it’s now April 2021. Players need to quickly and easily complete their research on the Today menu. Just in case you need help or are curious about all of the stages (there is only one), check out all of the timed research tasks and rewards for Pokémon GO ‘Tricky Pokémon’ here.

Tricky Pokémon Timed Research Guide for Pokémon GO

Below you will find each assignment and the corresponding reward for the new Team GO Rocket Timed Research, which can be found in the Today menu. There’s only one tier as Niantic apparently wants players to get their Super Rocket Radar with little effort. So check out the tasks below and read on for help with some additional parts.

  • Defeat 6 Team Go Rocket Grunts – 100 XP
  • Defeat Team Go Rocket Leader 1 time – 100 XP
  • Catch 5 Shadow Pokémon – 100 XP

Rewards: a Super Rocket Radar, 100 XP and 100 Stardust

Minimal rewards to be safe, but the Super Rocket Radar is the real goal. You can use it to find Giovanni and beat him. But to get it you have to hit either Arlo, Cliff, or Sierra first. You can find additional help in these guides if you need it. Once you’ve defeated one of them and done the other tasks, you’ll get your new radar that tracks the Team GO Rocket boss and eventually gives you a legendary Shadow Pokémon as a prize. While the other rewards are pretty worthless, this timed research is still very valuable.

Hopefully, now that you know the Pokémon GO Tricky Pokémon Timed Research quests and rewards, you can quickly finish them and get back to the other parts of the game.
