Tips on how to complete the Masterwork Research: Wish Granted in Pokémon Go

Here are some tips which will help you complete Masterwork Research: Wish Granted:

  • Since you’re going to be catching a lot of Pokémon for the Step 1 of Wish Granted, make sure you use your Daily Adventure Incense, Lure Modules and Incense to find a wide range of Pokémon from the first three generations.

How Masterwork Research: Wish Granted in Pokémon Go works

Masterwork Research: Wish Granted is the third Masterwork Research quest to be released in Pokémon Go and offers you the chance to catch a shiny Jirachi.

Like the previous Masterwork Research quests - All-in-One #151 and Apex - it is a pay-to-play quest. Unlike these quests, however, you only need to purchase a ticket for the quest itself and not for a Go Tour event, which, in 2023, is free for all players.

Tickets for Masterwork Research: Wish Granted cost £4.99, $4.99 or the equivalent price for your local region. These tickets are nonrefundable and can not be purchased using PokéCoin.

Tickets will also be on sale until Monday 20th March at the following times:

  • UK - 5pm (GMT)
  • Europe - 6pm (CET)
  • East Coast US - 1pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US - 10am (PST)
The Wish Granted quest can be purchased by selecting the Jirachi banner in the in-game shop.

Once you’ve purchased a ticket, you’ll be granted access to the Masterwork Research quest and will be able to complete it at your own pace since it has no deadline.

It’s important to note that players who attended the Go Tour: Hoenn Las Vegas event will have a different experience completing this research quest. This is because they will have to complete fewer quest steps to encounter shiny Jirachi compared to other players.

Finally, while Masterwork Research quests are designed to take a good amount of time to finish, progressing through one works exactly the same as a traditional special research quest. This means you will still have to complete a set of challenges to earn the quest step’s reward on repeat until you’ve finished the quest itself.

Good luck catching shiny Jirachi!
