Niantic has placed a big focus on Mega Evolution over the last several weeks in Pokémon Go, giving the mechanic a major rework and now hosting the A Mega Moment event. 

During this event, players will encounter Mega Kangaskhan for the first time in Mega Raids, with other bonuses and content giving other Pokémon capable of Mega Evolving some time to shine too. This includes increased spawns for Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Slowpoke, Gastly, Mareep, Buneary, and Snover, along with an increased chance of encountering Shiny Kangaskhan. 

Running from just April 29 to May 1, the event is small but does contain a lot of things to do, including a new Special Research story with branching tasks centered around Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise. Field Research will also be available, with players earning tons of Mega Energy for some featured Pokémon. 

With all of that in mind, here are all of the research tasks and rewards you can finish during A Mega Moment, along with all of the various paths you can take in the Special Research story.
