'Fascinating Facets' quest steps in Pokémon Go

Fascinating Facets is a special research quest exclusive to ticketed players during the Go Fest Global 2023 event in Pokémon Go.

To unlock this quest, you must log into Pokémon Go at least once during the Go Fest 2023 event hours of 10am to 6pm (local time) on Saturday 26th August and Sunday 27th August. We recommend unlocking it on Saturday 26th August and a second special research quest, which is available to all players, will be released on Day Two of the event.

Once you've unlocked Fascinating Facets, however, you can complete it at whatever pace you like since it's a special research quest and therefore doesn't have a deadline. You can even complete it after Go Fest Global 2023 ends!

Keep in mind that, if you've attended one of the in-person Go Fest 2023 events in London, Osaka or New York, you will recieve Diancie Candy instead of an additional Diancie encounter.

Below you'll find all of the Fascinating Facets quest steps and rewards in Pokémon Go, but be wary of spoilers!

How to get Mega Diancie in Pokémon Go

Your first question after catching Diancie in Pokémon Go will most likely be - how do I conduct its Mega Evolution? (Well, after you've checked its stats.)

The answer to this question is that you'll need 300 Mega Diancie Energy.

Yet, since Mega Diancie isn't appearing in Mega Raids, how will you collect this Mega Energy?

Thankfully, as you might have seen above, the Fascinating Facets special research quest offers you the chance to earn enough Mega Energy by completing its various challenges.

If you need more, however, you can earn additional Mega Diancie Energy by defeating Carbink in two-raids during the Go Fest 2023 event. Once you've Mega Evolved Diancie once, you'll also be able to collect Mega Energy by walking with the Pokémon as your buddy.

Having Mega Diancie active will, like all Mega Evolutions, give you access to a variety of bonuses, such as increasing the attack power of both Rock and Fairy-type Pokémon in raids.

How does Fascinating Facets work during Go Fest 2023 in Pokémon Go

Fascinating Facets is a special research quest exclusive to players who brought a Go Fest Global 2023 ticket in Pokémon Go. If this is the case for you, then you need to log into Pokémon at least during the event hours of this weekend long celebration.

Go Fest Global 2023 is running on Saturday 26th August and Sunday 27th August between 10am to 6pm (local hours). We recommend unlocking Fascinating Facets on Saturday 26th August as it is part of the Day One activities for Go Fest 2023 and there is a second special research being released on Day Two.

Remember - you must have a Go Fest Global 2023 ticket to access this special research quest. Like past mythical Pokémon released during Go Fest events, like Shaymin, Diancie will eventually become available via a free-to-play special research quest, but, at the time of writing, we don't know when this will be released.

If you're a free-to-play player and don't want to wait for that quest, then you can always purchase a Go Fest 2023 ticket during the event itself.

Meanwhile, if you attended one of the in-person Go Fest 2023 events at either London, Osaka or New York, you will recieve Diancie Candy rather than an additional encounter with the mythical Pokémon.

Aside from the stipulation of having a Go Fest 2023 ticket, Fascinating Facets works exactly the same as any other special research quest; tasking you completing a series a challenge so you can progress through the quest steps, rewarding you for every challenge and quest step you complete.

Good luck catching Diancie!
