The event runs from June 8 to June 13, so you’ll need to get to work soon if you want to knock them all out. Here are all the research tasks you need to complete, and the rewards you’ll earn for each:

  • Catch 8 Water-type Pokemon
    • Reward: Slowpoke encounter
  • Catch 8 Psychic-type Pokemon
    • Reward: Slowpoke encounter
  • Evolve a Pokemon

The Pokemon Go Slowpoke event also includes a Collection Challenge which tasks you with rounding up a Slowpoke (available in the wild or through the field research tasks above) before evolving it into a Slowbro and Slowking. 

The first evolution will require 50 Slowpoke Candy, and the second will require 50 Slowpoke Candy and a King’s Rock. Handy, then, that you’ll earn a King’s Rock from the research tasks above. You’ll gain Candy by using Pinap Berries on all the Slowpoke you catch.

Complete the lot of challenges and you’ll gain 3,000XP, 30 Ultra Balls, and a Slowpoke Forever Shirt you can slap on your Pokemon Go character.

That’s all there is to know about the Pokemon Go A Very Slow Discovery field research tasks, meaning you can get out there and start working on completing all the Slowpoke event challenges before June 13!
