March 10, 2021

Pokemon GO’s Season of Legends continues to give trainers plenty to do. There is the rotating raids, different events and the research tasks for players to complete.

One of the events that is currently ongoing is called “Search for Legends”. This event contains a variety of new spawns and some Special Research that players need to complete.

The special research contains a variety of tasks, but there is one that is causing players a handful of issues – and we are here to help.

Here’s how to take a Snapshot of Landorus, Tornadus and Thundurus in Pokemon GO.

What is Searching for Legends?

Searching for Legends is the latest Pokemon GO event. It contains a ton of featured wild Pokemon, including Aron, Baltoy, Roggenrola and, for the first time ever, Shiny Nosepass. Alongside those, Pokemon appearing in Eggs and Raids have also changed.

The event also contains a range of Special Research tasks, with some great rewards. Some of these Timed Research tasks challenge players to take a snapshot of the Forces of Nature trio – and here’s how you can do it.

Step 1. Capture the Pokemon

To be able to complete this task, trainers first need to ensure they have the three required Pokemon. Currently, until March 11 (8 am local time) Tornadus is in raids and GO Battle League rewards. This provides the perfect opportunity to ensure you have this Pokemon.

From March 11, Tornadus rotates out for Thundurus – once again providing an opportunity to acquire the Pokemon for the task.

The only tricky one could be Landorus as he is out of raids for a while now. Your best chance, if you don’t have one yet, is to trade with another trainer.

Step 2. Take a Snapshot of Landorus, Tornadus and Thundurus in Pokemon GO.

This is the slightly trickier step. To take a photo of the Pokemon – players will need to select them from the Pokemon section of the Pokemon GO in-game menu.

After selecting the Pokemon, players need to select the camera symbol in the top right corner of the screen:

After that, you will be taken to a camera screen where you need to scan a flat surface until you see these little petals floating around:

From there, all you need to do, is click the camera at the bottom and the task is complete:

Repeat this with all three Pokemon at the right stage of the research and you have completed it!
