Super effective research task reward explained in Pokémon Go

The reward for the sole Research Task in the latest event.

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 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!


The Season of Mischief is here! Current events include the Season 9 of Go Battle League, the addition of Raid Achievements and the Misunderstood Mischief research quest. Shiny Ditto can also now be found in the wild and this tricky Pokémon is now appearing as new creatures! Meanwhile, the last major update saw a level cap increase - including the addition of XL Candy, boosts to some XP sources and the addition of Platinum Medals. Inkay and Malamar are now in Pokémon Go!
