To celebrate the Lunar New Year, a new Pokémon Go event is now live with several new pieces of content, extended trade distance, and the introduction of Mega Gyarados. 

Along with the usual increased spawns and updated raid and egg pools that come with every Pokémon Go event, you can tackle the Year of the Ox by completing some Special Research that will prepare you to tame the Water/Dark-type Mega Evolution. 

You won’t have any issue completing the Today’s View Research added in since most of it involves capturing Fire-types and giving Gifts to your friends. If you plan to even somewhat participate in the celebration, here are all the research tasks you can complete, along with their rewards for the Lunar New Year 2021 event.
