Pokémon Go has introduced a new Special Research task line, called “Voltorb from the Hisui Region?!” The new Special Research tasks players with learning about the new form of Voltorb.

The Special Research follows the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and goes along with the release of Hisuian Voltorb into Pokémon Go. All players will have access to the new Special Research after the Power Plant event on Jan. 30.

The task line isn’t long. There are only two tasks for the challenge, and they are fairly easy to finish. Here are all of the tasks and rewards for the Voltorb from the Hisui Region Special Research.

First task:

  • Catch 10 Pokémon
    • Reward: Kantoan Voltorb encounter.
  • Use 10 Berries to help catch Pokémon.
    • Reward: Kantoan Voltorb encounter.
  • Give your buddy 3 treats.

Second task:

  • Catch 20 Pokémon.
    • Reward: Kantoan Voltorb encounter.
  • Use 20 berries to help catch Pokémon.
    • Reward: Kantoan Voltorb encounter.
