The Super Effective research task is a time limited quest available in Pokémon Go to coincide with, you guessed it, the Super Effective event, which has seen a boost to competitive rewards - from double Stardust in Trainer Battles to increased spawns of creatures that might be useful against in the fight against Team Rocket.
These tasks are available at PokéStops, replacing some of the current roster of monthly Research Tasks currently available.
The Super Effective research task reward explained in Pokémon Go
The sole Super Effective task is live in Pokémon Go from November 19th to November 26th, 9am BST / 1am PST, although tasks can be completed and rewards can be claimed at any point after that if you've picked up the task before the event ends and keep hold of it.
Super Effective Global research tasks list:
- Use a super effective charged attack in a gym battle reward - Tentacool
What else do you need to know about Super Effective research task rewards?
That's right - this event only has a single research task, so you only have to remember just the one reward over the coming week.
That reward is Tentacool, with is the newly added Shiny for this event, so for those who want to track it down, farming this research is a great way to do so.
Increased Tentacool spawns also appear in the wild, too, so however you prefer to play, hopefully you'll be in with a better chance of finding one!
November features a string of events, the latest of which is Friend Fest week. We've recently seen the first Gen 5 Pokémon arrive - these include new regional exclusive Pokémon, Egg charts, and the introduction of the Unova Stone. Elsewhere this year we've also seen new Adventure Sync rewards, a Jirachi quest, Team Rocket Invasions and freeing Shadow Pokémon, as well as monthly Field Research rewards. Complete the Looming in the Shadows special research quest line to fight against the invading Team Go Rocket Leaders and Giovanni! Finally, we have details on the next Pokémon Go Community Day.
