What you need to know

  • On November 2, 2019 from 11 AM to 7 PM local time, players can use paid tickets to access Special Research.
  • Tickets and Special Research do not expire but will be much easier to complete during this window.
  • Upon completion, players will have the chance to catch Regigigas.

It has finally arrived. The much hyped first paid only global event for Pokémon Go is here. Announced in October 2019, a Colossal Discovery is a set of Special Research players can purchase to have an early encounter the Legendary titan, Regigigas. Leader of the Regi titans, Regigigas is a Normal type Pokémon who will be coming to EX Raids later this month but for today only, players who purchase a ticket for cash only can activate a set of Special Research that will allow them to encounter Regigigas early. These tickets cost $7.99 in your local currency (no Pokécoins!) and can only be purchased through today. Once purchased, it does not expire but completing the Special Research tasks will be much easier during the event window today.

Thanks to Reddit, we now know what those Research tasks entail:
