All Season of Legends Special Research tasks and rewards for Pokémon Go

Searching for legends, but not just in the event.

The first event of March is rolling out in Pokémon Go and with it comes a compass that players can use to search for legends—or at least that’s what Niantic is pushing as the theme. 

The Searching for Legends event will run from March 9 to 14 and feature an increased number of Ground, Rock, and Steel-type Pokémon, including the Compass Pokémon, Nosepass.

There isn’t much directly linking the event to the overarching Season of Legends, but you can encounter several rare and shiny Pokémon—and there’s new Special Research, too. So if you want to prepare in the next Season of Legends event, here are all the research tasks you can complete, along with their rewards for the new Special Research.
