Pokémon Go is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a big event that will highlight many of the new features added to the game over the years, including the new real-time sky mechanic.

From July 6 to 15, Flying Pikachu with a five-shaped balloon, Shiny Darumaka, and Shiny Meltan will all be available for the first time, alongside all of the starter Pokémon currently available in Pokémon Go.

Niantic has also launched a new Item Bag expansion, letting players expand their inventory to 3,500, which is perfect timing, since a new Collection Challenge and a mix of new and old research will be featured during the fifth anniversary event. 

The“Jump-Start” Special Research from last year’s anniversary is making a return, while new event-exclusive Field Research is also going to be available. So if you plan to take the challenge and complete both, here are all of the research tasks and rewards that will be live during the event.
