Investigating a Mysterious Energy - Catching Victini in PokemonGO

Investigating a Mysterious Energy - Catching Victini in PokemonGO

Victini (Gen-5, Mythical), the victory Pokemon, first became available to players who purchased a ticket to GO Fest 2020 via Special Research. A few months later, a new Special Research Quest named "Investigating a Mysterious Energy" was added to PokemonGO featuring many tasks and rewards including a Victini encounter. This Special Research Quest is available to all players, however, if you already caught Victini during GO Fest 2020 the Victini Encounter is replaced with Victini Candies. Many Trainers have been waiting long for the opportunity to catch Victini and now they can earn an encounter with Victini after completing 4 of the 6 stages of the Quest. Each stage has 3 tasks and features additional rewards. Some of these tasks require preperation and special Items so we've collected all tasks below so you'll know what to expect when starting the Quest.
