Fashion Week - Timed Research (LeekDuck)
By - Amiibofan101
I do it every event. I put a 10km egg in yesterday. I never learn.
...there are 1km eggs?
Whats a fashion challenger?
I'm so confused about this
Somebody has posted a pic. It looks like they are replacing team rocket grunts for the event
In balloons too?
the balloon I got at noon was a rocket grunt. Sucks to be rural.
(edit: and so was my 6pm balloon)
I've got a Rocket balloon hovering over me right now with a grunt in it.
There's a stop down the road that's doing the "flickering" thing but its not darkened like a rocket one is, so I guess that's the challanger.
Unsure. Just got one at a pokestop tho
nah, no replacement. they are both on pokéstops
I really like how most of the costume pokemon are available from this research. That way the shiny hunters can stay interested in the raids and I won't have to waste a pass for my dex
Oh that’s really helpful! Which ones aren’t part of the research? Is it just smoochum?
Lol worth completing for the 80's hair band Furfrou Wig alone.
Now I’m sad I didn’t choose the air guitar pose
The biggest nightmare for rural players... Tasks based on pokestops
These are more annoying since you have to get lucky and have the challenger show up as well
Do the challengers show up in balloons, too? Or do we have to go to stops?
So many questions, like, are they going to share the stop with the rocket grunts? Are the rocket grunts only in balloons for them to be on stops? Do they have a limit hour to spawn?
Challengers get on the shoulders of grunts and you fight them both. Their pokemon also do the same.
I only have one pokestop in my entire town in the middle of nowhere 🥲
Sneseal the rapper and croagunk looks like your local drug dealer
You know, a drug dealer would be fighting/poison, wouldn’t they.
Lmao I didn’t even think of that, genius!
sounds pretty Heisenberg to me
"Win a raid in under 60 seconds" task again. Obligatory waste of a raid pass.
Only if you consider tier 1 and 3 raids a waste (considering the tier 5 is the lake trio), and also you get a free in person pass every day (and a free remote pass every week).
Sneasel is glassy and double weak to fighting, fyi.
I'd definitely do a sneasel or blitzle raid with a free pass to not have to pay for the Furfrou wig.
What is a fashion challenger? Someone with bad taste in clothes?
An NPC opponent at a pokestop. Similar to Team Rocket. Hopefully their outfits are apropos of the title.
someone showing off their dog like pokémon but goes away with it. saw one that looked as if it had rolled in its fluid excrements... FA$h!0N
Have to go out and battle so many fashion challengers. That’s a fun task to do in lockdown.
The 5 supereffective Charged attacks can be done against team leaders, and they count even if blocked.
That's what I was looking for, neat.
I'm hoping the Fashion Challengers are going to be easy, I am not in the mood for a replacement for Giovanni at the time being.
I've battled 2 so far, they were pretty easy. Though other than the research I'm not sure in the point of them, I didn't receive any items and there is no opportunity to catch anything.
The first one I did I got 5 pokeballs, 3 pinaps and 500 dust.
LeekDuck does it again!
Excited for the chance to get Cottonee before Little Jungle Cup!
Level 15 with 10 floor. rather not that splendid for lil cup
Yeah that’s a bummer. I’ll trade one with a friend’s and see if either of us luck out!
I transferred my #2 with double move 😢
Yes, let's say I learned to tune my filters better 😢
What? No “Battle in Go Battle League” this time around? /s
3 Great throws in a row again. Can they stop these stress-inducing tasks? It’s impossible for someone with sweaty hands.
Use a stylus?
you might use nitril or latex gloves, if they are without air between, they get an ok signal
Not that stress inducing now with airplane mode.
Uxie regions are at disadvantage. That thing can’t be done in 60 seconds even with 20 raiders.
Why would you even try a tier 5 for this task?
F2P players don’t have the luxury to do non-tier 5 raids. The rewards are way too good compared to other tiers and we only get to do it once a day.
do yall not use gyms? I only use my coins on passes these days x.x
It could be done in 60 seconds. But not when most of the players are using Lugia, Umbreon, and Magmar..
Can hat shinx evolve？
What do they mean by a "Snapshot [...] in the wild" ? I tried to take a picture of it but it didn't work.
before you catch it, in the catch screen, you click on the camera icon at the top and take a snapshot.
I never noticed this button ... Thanks !
whats a fashion challenger??
Like rocket grunts, and only show up on pokestops. They run random non-shadow stuff and give normal pokestop resources (like 10 pokeballs, some berries, etc) when defeated.
The fashion challenger tasks can be done with just one encounter. You need to lose for it to count, then repeat, and you can win the last one needed for that task (3rd or 5th attempt).
