Longchamp fashion event research task rewards explained in Pokémon Go

What's happening in Pokémon Go's fashion inspired event?

Longchamp event research tasks are a series of limited-time challenges in Pokémon Go that have been released to celebrate the collaboration between Longchamp and Pokémon Go.

Throughout this event you'll be able to collect and complete a series of exclusive field research tasks and catch a variety of new costumed Pokémon.

These tasks can be found by spinning PokéStops, alongside the current roster of monthly research tasks, which are currently available. If you're looking for a specific task, then you may have to visit multiple PokéStops.

Everything else you need to know about the Longchamp 'fashion' event in Pokémon Go

Since the Longchamp event in Pokémon Go is inspired by fashion it includes the release of four new costume Pokémon and, yes, they're all wearing some form of hat. Yay...

You can hatch a Smoochum wearing a bow from 7km eggs, while Croagunk wearing backwards caps will appear when you take photos using Go Snapshot. You might also encounter these cap-wearing Croagunks in the wild.

Meanwhile, in raids, you'll be able to battle Kirlia, which will know the move Draining Kiss, and Shinx - both of which will be wearing top hats.

Croagunk, Smoochum, Kirlia and Shinx all join the ranks of costumed Pokémon.

Your Pokémon Go avatar hasn't been left out of fashion week either, as, in the shop, you'll be able to collect a free Longchamp inspired avatar item.

Finally, a number of Pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild throughout the Longchamp event.

These Pokémon are:

  • Mareep
  • Skitty
  • Roselia
  • Kricketot
  • Croagunk wearing a backward cap
  • Blitzle
  • Cottonee
  • Minccino
  • Gothita

You might even find yourself catching a shiny Kricketot during the Longchamp event.
