Pokémon Go Finding Your Voice quest tasks and rewards - every step to catching Meloetta

How to catch the mythical melody Pokémon.

Thanks to the Finding Your Voice special research quest, Meloetta can now be caught by every trainer in Pokémon Go.

Meloetta can now stand alongside Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Victini, Hoopa and Meltan as mythical Pokémon, which, in Pokémon Go, are obtained by completing special research quests.

Meloetta originally debuted on the first day of Go Fest 2021 as one of the rewards for The Melody Pokémon research quest.

'Finding Your Voice' quest steps in Pokémon Go

Below you can find every quest step and reward for Finding Your Voice in Pokémon Go. Finding Your Voice doesn't have a deadline, due to it being a special research quest, so feel free to complete it at your leisure.

It's important to note, however, that Go Fest 2021 ticket purchases will receive Meloetta candy, rather than a second Meloetta, for completing this research. If you were a Go Fest 2021 ticket holder, but are yet to catch Meloetta, we recommend visiting our The Melody Pokémon guide.

  • A great way to find new friends in Pokémon Go is to visit The Silph Road subreddit and search for friend codes.

How Meloetta quest 'Finding Your Voice' works in Pokémon Go

Research quests, which are tasks players can complete for a variety of rewards, were released in March 2018 and are divided into a number of categories, such as field and timed.

Finding Your Voice is a special research quest released on Tuesday, 21st September 2021 and, since it has no deadline, can be completed at your own pace. It's also the seventh in Pokémon Go's series of mythical Pokémon special research questlines, with the others being for Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Victini, Hoopa and Meltan.

Finding Your Voice is divided into six steps and, for each step, three separate challenges that need completing for progression. You'll be rewarded for every individual challenge and overall quest step you complete, with the main reward being the mythical Meloetta.

Players who purchased a Go Fest 2021 ticket, however, will receive Meloetta candy, because they will have access to, or already completed, Meloetta's first special research quest - The Melody Pokémon.

New to the game is a long overdue Mega Evolution update, which has arrived alongside the A Mega Moment research. May 2022 in Pokémon Go includes the Water Festival, which celebrates the release of Dewpider and Araquanid. Tapu Fini has also been released alongside A Poni Adventure - the last Alola region-themed special research quest. Currently both the Ultra League and Element Cup are running in the Go Battle League. Elsewhere, we've recently seen the release of more Gen 7 Pokémon as part of the Season of Alola. The first details surrounding Go Fest 2022 have also been announced, including the event date.

How Meloetta first debuted in Pokémon Go

Meloetta was originally released as part of the Go Fest 2021 celebrations and ticket could catch the mythical Pokémon by completing The Melody Pokémon special research quest, which was released on Saturday, 17th July - Day One of the event.

To obtain Meloetta players had to complete Stage Ten of the quest and, along the way, they were given the choice between Pikachu Rock Star or Pikachu Pop Star, a Meloetta-hatted Galarian Ponyta or Galarian Zigzagoon and a Meloetta-hatted Flygon or Gardevoir.

In keeping with the musical theme of Go Fest 2021, the quest concluded with the player's chosen Pokémon and Meloetta performing as a band.

The Meloetta Go Fest quest involved choosing between various costume Pokémon.

This manner of release follows the tradition of having a new mythical Pokémon released during Go Fest, with Celebi, Jirachi and Victini all being released in a similar manner at past Go Fests.

Instead of receiving a second Meloetta by completing Finding Your Voice, Go Fest 2021 ticket holders will earn additional candy for this Pokémon. If you bought a Go Fest 2021 ticket and haven't caught Meloetta yet, then we recommend visiting our page on The Melody Pokémon research quest.

Good luck catching Meloetta in Pokémon Go!
