Psychic Spectacular Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

Completely separate from the ongoing Misunderstood Mischief Special Research, this Timed Research features five steps of three tasks each for you to complete before the end of the event.

You should gain access to the Psychic Spectacular Timed Research starting on Wednesday, September 8 at 10:00 am local time and have until Monday, September 13 at 8:00 pm local time to complete it.

To finish this Psychic Spectacular event-exclusive Timed Research, you will have to complete the 15 total tasks below that have been provided by Leek Duck, with you receiving plenty of rewards along the way.

Step 1

Catch 10 Psychic-type Pokemon – 500 XP
Transfer 10 Pokemon – 10x Poke Balls
Spin a PokeStop or Gym – 500 Stardust
Rewards – Abra encounter, 10 Razz Berries, 500 XP

Step 2

Power up Pokemon 5 times – 10x Ultra Balls
Catch 20 Pokemon – 5x Pinap Berries
Make 5 Great Throws – 1x Fast TM

Step 3

Overall, there shouldn’t be any of these tasks that should be too overly difficult for you to complete in the Psychic Spectacular Timed Research. The only one that may take a little time for you to finish is the Hatch an Egg task, but that should be fairly easy with Adventure Sync on, especially if you’re using a 2 km Egg.

Just make sure that you complete all five steps before the Psychic Spectacular Timed Research ends on Monday, September 13 at 8:00 pm local time.
