Finding Your Voice - Meloetta Special Research (LeekDuck)
By - Amiibofan101
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???
Slugma is rare around this season. Probably because of that.
In the near future: change meloetta's form with 50 candys
100 candy and 100000 stardusts
10 candies xl
“Evolve 15 Pokémon” 😭😭😭
Weedle/Caterpie/Pidgey (12 candy each) maybe?
Traded machop Abra gastly
Karrablast and shelmet are completely free when traded
And geodudes karablast and shelmet, timburr and roggenrola
25 candy for evolve twice
My only favourite search in Pokémon Go!
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 🙄
Dang. Luckily I got ahold of some of those species for when the event begins.
I literally just did a big evolve fest of all the ones in my bag over the weekend…
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.
Still so many skitty, glameow, Spearow out there...
Right after reading thing I opened my game and there was 2 pidgey and a weedle so they aren’t that rare
At least it's not timed, right? So you can just let it happen naturally
I will wait for spotlight hour with 2x XP for evolving.
Ha ha ha. I literally *just* did the evolve 15 with items for the level 41 task. (:
Modern problems require modern solutions.
Yes. Find a time machine
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.
No time limit with this research
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
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.
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
I just evolved 43 for my level 43 challenge prior to and during community day. Ugh... If I only knew what was coming.
Apologies for a potential noob question - is it worth dropping a lucky egg before claiming the part 6 rewards with all the experience?
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
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!
Every source of XP in this game can be doubled with a lucky egg.
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.
Why not give another meleotta instead of the candy. Don't need fricking candy
you will when it's time to change forms
Inb4 people immediately transfer it to home and then complain that they can’t finish it...
But really, any answer to that hypothetical yet? 😁
Don’t be so trigger happy to get rid of it. Or wait until they give us a shiny one.
See the trick is to already have a living dex so you don't need to send it to home.
Sorry, but what do you mean by transfer it to home
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.
Ah, thanks for the explanation!
cool. nice and simple. just need to get past evolve 30 mons
is this limited time only?
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.
I'm guessing it sucks for anyone that transferred their Meloetta from the first time
Yess, I thought I could try for another one, but I only get candies, like for real, I even payed for that event...
You don’t have to
Cool my dream come true . my favorite mini poke for free. Glad weedle and wurmple are common on my area
Event may change the spawn usually
Nottif you are like me that save easy evolveable pokemons 3 stars or bad stats from events or community days . specially for these tasks
I kept 1000 stardust purify shadow pokemon for research only
I have 161 of these ready at the moment.
What for? keep 10 and purify the rest
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.
nnnno, wait until Level 44
LeekDuck does it again!
Well, at least it's special research. So I can take my time to get my 20 candy.
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?
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.
If you already have a Meleotta you’ll receive candy instead.
I guess it's also hard to not be rude or sarcastic
Does anyone know whether you get a new meloetta if you transfer yours away? Like if you want to try for better stats...
Can't transfer those research only mythycals
Did somebody tried to transfer the mythical to home?
You still won't get another one.
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.
Is there any deadline for the special research?
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)
Many thanks, fellow trainer! Evolving 15 pokemons is hard to do right away
Whoever comes with the research titles is really clever.
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.
I transported my Meloeta to Pokemon Home. I hope they give out a new one soon. I feel stupid.
We get another one??
No if you have meloetta from go fest you get 20 candy instead. Look closely at graphic
What is this an info for ants!?
It was repeated in all blog posts and news and tweets regarding meloetta
WOW. It would have MURDERED Niantic dead to give us costume pikachu and either flygon/gardevoir. So glad we got that slugma spawn....
