Just a Nibble is the latest Community Day research quest in Pokémon Go.
Releasing as part of the June 2021 Community Day, it is focused around the highlighted Pokémon - Gible - and requires you buy a ticket from the in-game store leading up to or during the event hours to participate.
The quest adds some welcome structure to the event - and a handful of rewards, including Gible evolution encounters, and a Lucky Egg - as part of the ticket.

Everything else you need to know about Just a Nibble in Pokémon Go
Releasing as part of the June 2021 Community Day, Just a Nibble focused around the highlighted Pokémon - Gible - and requires you buy a ticket from the in-game store leading up to or during the event hours to participate.
As mentioned when you purchase, the bonuses are only available on Community Day itself, so be sure to finish it on the day. After all, when's the next time you'll be able to catch 30 Gible to complete the steps involved?
That said, you'll likely get through the quest quickly, as each stage is pretty straightforward. One recommendation during the second and third steps is to transfer Pokémon other than Gible, then waiting for the next 2x Candy transfer Spotlight Hour (on Tuesday, June 15th) to transfer your Gible catches. Gible is rare enough to go through the hassle of squeezing out every possible Candy!
Besides that, other Community Day best practices apply; always use a Lure, and Incense any Stops you will spin regularly; use a Pinap Berry for each catch to double your Candy; and evolve a dragon-type Mega Evolution - such as Mega Altaria, Mega Ampharos or Mega Charizard X - during the event for +1 Candy per catch. It's also recommended to apply Lucky Eggs to make use of the 3x Catch XP bonus, too.
Also, pace yourself throughout the day. Though it's an excellent opportunity to get a lot of Gible, including many shiny versions and one with a strong Garchomp moveset by evolving before 7pm local time, you may find after an hour or two's play you'll have more than enough to fully evolve and power up a high IV catch to use in battle.
So take care over the six hours, take regular rest, and hydrate!
