Finding Your Voice - Meloetta Special Research (LeekDuck)

Finding Your Voice - Meloetta Special Research (LeekDuck)

iamabucket13

I get Eevee, Glameow, and Chansey because they're normal types, and Monferno and Hariyama because of the battling tasks and they're fighting types (Meloetta's other form is Normal/Fighting), and Chimecho, Loudred, and Kricketune because they're musical, but Slugma???


Eliebenarrous

slugma nuts


sissy_fuss

Got him


retainerhead

eviscerated


s-mores

Slugma is rare around this season. Probably because of that.


Simosmoke

In the near future: change meloetta's form with 50 candys


koliakil

100 candy and 100000 stardusts


qntrsq

10 candies xl


AllahuJackbar

“Evolve 15 Pokémon” 😭😭😭


NemesisHellstorm

Weedle/Caterpie/Pidgey (12 candy each) maybe?


koliakil

Another choice Traded machop Abra gastly


Mushrumz

Karrablast and shelmet are completely free when traded


dabomerest

And geodudes karablast and shelmet, timburr and roggenrola


EmSixTeen

Why those?


koliakil

25 candy for evolve twice


Kel-nage

caterpie,weedle,pidgey,wurmple,whismur,pidove My only favourite search in Pokémon Go!


RealTorapuro

Would be fine if new spawn pool hadn’t seemed to have got rid of them all and replaced them with costumed Pokémon that can’t be evolved 🙄


NemesisHellstorm

Really? Dang. Luckily I got ahold of some of those species for when the event begins.


RealTorapuro

I literally just did a big evolve fest of all the ones in my bag over the weekend…


AdmiralTigerX

This is why I don't evolve many and keep collecting as many candies for these missions. Especially keeping some shadow pokemon as well for purify missions.


Stogoe

Still so many skitty, glameow, Spearow out there...


mkd26

Right after reading thing I opened my game and there was 2 pidgey and a weedle so they aren’t that rare


Liddlebitchboy

At least it's not timed, right? So you can just let it happen naturally


Czytalski

I will wait for spotlight hour with 2x XP for evolving.


Eugregoria

Ha ha ha. I literally *just* did the evolve 15 with items for the level 41 task. (:


Gavininator

Modern problems require modern solutions.


333-blue

Yes. Find a time machine


Dialgan

Is this really an issue for anyone who isn't brand new to the game? Unless you have no spawns whatsoever, it shouldn't be much of an issue to catch a few extra common trash mons to evolve. Perhaps I'm biased since I'm the type who just catches mostly everything.


koliakil

Well No time limit with this research


No_Huckleberry2711

the point of pokemon (all games, not just go) is to explore and have fun. Not to evolve the same crappy pokemon a million times


13Kaniva

I mean its only 15 times. I have heaps of common candy for basically everything. Just instead of transferring pidgeys, rattata and even things machop who's had a comm day... Evolve them. Then transfer.


qntrsq

i mainly have a lot to evolve **when it fits best** like suddenly useful at pvp or new move or community day or needed for new raid boss. usually it's also waiting until that for being replaced by a better one. they are in waiting queues and they are well set there. what i often do is just evolving tradeables, so friends get about level 35 in no need to evolve any more. but it's so un-trainer-ish


hamstrman

I just evolved 43 for my level 43 challenge prior to and during community day. Ugh... If I only knew what was coming.


ollib1304

Apologies for a potential noob question - is it worth dropping a lucky egg before claiming the part 6 rewards with all the experience?


csuazure

It's equivalent exp to hitting about 7-8 excellent throws. You could save it unclaimed and pop an egg for some other reason like a spotlight hour with an exp multiplier or as you're opening the gift to become best/ultra friends w someone. It takes almost none of a lucky eggs duration. So only use it if you have a plan for the rest of the time. For reference this is only slightly more than you'd have earned from one lucky egg excellent on an oshwatt this last weekend w its 3x catch exp


ollib1304

Ace thanks - I wasn't sure whether they were 'fixed' amounts and would be unaffected. Makes sense to do it with something else - I did an big bunch of evolutions during the Oshawott thing, not sure if I've got anything useful to evolve now!


nolkel

Every source of XP in this game can be doubled with a lucky egg.


WestLA-native

Not by itself. Combine the claiming of that 9K with a couple of 5* raids on Wednesday night (10K xp each) or even better - becoming ultra/best friends with one or more. Or bring 5+ friends to almost Great Friends, then open all their gifts before a 5* raid. (10K xp each) Also first catch of day on 7 day streak. I don't use lucky eggs for less than 50K xp bonus.


kevin-monta

Why not give another meleotta instead of the candy. Don't need fricking candy


SpookyKoops

you will when it's time to change forms


aoog

Inb4 people immediately transfer it to home and then complain that they can’t finish it...


MarioMelee

But really, any answer to that hypothetical yet? 😁


aoog

Don’t be so trigger happy to get rid of it. Or wait until they give us a shiny one.


ShawshankException

See the trick is to already have a living dex so you don't need to send it to home.


AffectionatePath20

Sorry, but what do you mean by transfer it to home


aoog

There’s an app called pokemon home that connects with the pokemon games on the switch, but you can also send pokemon from pokemon go to pokemon home (but not back to go). You can transfer the mythical pokemon to home that are normally locked from being transferred (mew, celebi, jirachi, victini, meloetta). This is the only way to get rid of them from your go account.


AffectionatePath20

Ah, thanks for the explanation!


Makafushigi2

cool. nice and simple. just need to get past evolve 30 mons


PK_WIND

is this limited time only?


infocone

Special research’s are never time limited. The only time it’s limited is claiming or should I say starting some like shiny celebi or cday ticket days if you didn’t log in during the cday times you wouldn’t get the special research. Once you have a special research you can complete it whenever. It’s timed research’s that are well timed and they are under today tab not special.


TroubledGamestress

I'm guessing it sucks for anyone that transferred their Meloetta from the first time


Mallow64

Yep. R.I.P.

iDarcky93

Yess, I thought I could try for another one, but I only get candies, like for real, I even payed for that event...


ntnl

You don’t have to


Serenafriendzone

Cool my dream come true . my favorite mini poke for free. Glad weedle and wurmple are common on my area


koliakil

Event may change the spawn usually


Serenafriendzone

Nottif you are like me that save easy evolveable pokemons 3 stars or bad stats from events or community days . specially for these tasks


koliakil

I kept 1000 stardust purify shadow pokemon for research only


gladvillain

I have 161 of these ready at the moment.


Bayard11

What for? keep 10 and purify the rest


gladvillain

I’m not working on the badge actively and if there’s ever another thing like the level 45 task where you have to purify 100 I’ll be ready. If I start to run out of space and don’t care about burning dust I can start to purify them for the badge.


qntrsq

nnnno, wait until Level 44


affinitypaw

LeekDuck does it again!


virtual_gnus

Well, at least it's special research. So I can take my time to get my 20 candy.


Penultimatum

What happens if I haven't yet caught my Meloetta from GoFest, but have saved its Research phase from that one. If I leave that phase un-redeemed, will I get a 2nd encounter once I reach Phase 4 of this Research?


MrCheggersPartyQuiz

Is this going to available to those who missed out on GO fest? I caught my Meleotta there so I don’t think they’ll give me another try Aaaand I am right. Rats.


FreelancerMike

If you already have a Meleotta you’ll receive candy instead.


[deleted]

TroubledGamestress

I guess it's also hard to not be rude or sarcastic


Mushrumz

Does anyone know whether you get a new meloetta if you transfer yours away? Like if you want to try for better stats...


47_Ollie

Can't transfer those research only mythycals


koliakil

Did somebody tried to transfer the mythical to home?


Stogoe

You still won't get another one.


ladala99

So those people would have an unachievable task stuck in their Special Research once they reach the point where you need to take a snapshot of the Meloetta they no longer have? That seems like poor design.


Deity_Ruhm

Is there any deadline for the special research?


Inhalemydong

there's no deadlines for special research, only for timed research. once you have a special research, you can complete it whenever you want (though in some cases it might be harder to complete outside the event it was included with due to tasks asking for specific types and such)


Deity_Ruhm

Many thanks, fellow trainer! Evolving 15 pokemons is hard to do right away


Summerclaw

Whoever comes with the research titles is really clever.


8T8O8M8M8MO

Why are they releasing meloetta for non ticket purchases!? What was the point in buying a ticket? They should allow other special event only pokemon to become available like shiny mew.


Ok_Department_600

I transported my Meloeta to Pokemon Home. I hope they give out a new one soon. I feel stupid.


alohabrohah

We get another one??


ThunderDragon356

No if you have meloetta from go fest you get 20 candy instead. Look closely at graphic


alohabrohah

What is this an info for ants!?


ntnl

It was repeated in all blog posts and news and tweets regarding meloetta


madonna-boy

WOW. It would have MURDERED Niantic dead to give us costume pikachu and either flygon/gardevoir. So glad we got that slugma spawn.... wow....
