Enigma Week research task rewards explained in Pokémon Go

Everything you need to know about the Enigma Week bonuses in Pokémon Go.

Enigma Week research tasks are a series of limited-time challenges in Pokémon Go that are part of the Ultra Unlock bonus, which was unlocked by Go Fest 2020 attendees.

There are three Ultra Unlock bonuses in total - Dragon Week, which has already occurred, Enigma Week, which is happening right now, and Unova Week, which will run after Enigma Week.

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 might have to visit more than PokéStop!

What else do you need to know about Enigma Week in Pokémon Go?

Aside from the Enigma Week research tasks, there are a number of other bonuses that you can take advantage of during this event in Pokémon Go.

The first is that Enigma Week marks the release of Elgyem and Beheeyem, psychic-type Pokémon from Gen 5, into Pokémon Go.

You will also be able to find Staryu, Jigglypuff, Clefairy, Lunatone, Solrock, Baltoy and Bronzor in the wild. The shiny version of Staryu will also see its release during Enigma Week, so, if you're looking for a Pokémon to focus on, we recommend Staryu!

Elgyem and Beheeyem can now be found in Pokémon Go.

A number of Unown will also be appearing in both raids and the wild during Enigma Week. The Unown on offer are U, L, T, R, A and, if you're lucky, you might even catch a shiny Unown.

Normal Forme Deoxys will also be available in five-star raids throughout this week, so if you need to add this Pokémon to your Pokédex or just want its shiny version, then this is the time to battle it.

Alongside Deoxys and the Unowns, you'll also be able to battle Bronzong, Claydol and Elgyem in raids.

Remember - you can raid remotely, so you can make both Deoxys and the Unowns come to you.

Finally, you'll also be able to hatch the following Pokémon from 7km eggs:

  • Cleffa
  • Igglybuff
  • Solrock
  • Elgyem

Good luck with Enigma Week!
