Lake Legends event research task rewards in Pokémon Go

Everything you need to know about the Lake Legends event in Pokémon Go.

Lake Legends event research tasks are a series of limited time challenges in Pokémon Go to celebrate Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf making an appearance in five-star raids.

Remember - these legendary Pokémon are region exclusives, so you will only be able to catch one and which is determined by where you live.

The research tasks can only 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 a number of different PokéStops.
