Pokémon Go Team Building quest steps, choose a path Galarian Stunfisk, Drapion, Jellicent differences

How the branching World Championships-themed quest works.

The Team Building quest in Pokémon Go is research released alongside the Pokémon World Championships in August 2022.

Available as part of a Twitch code giveaway throughout the event, the short Pokémon Go quest is designed to help you build out a strong Great League team.

Part of that is a branching path - having you choose between Galarian Stunfisk, Drapion and Jellicent in Pokémon Go.

Once you begin, the Team Building research is available until Wednesday, 31st August at midnight local time.

Team Building: Great League Step 1 of 3

Once you have begun the quest from the Twitch code giveaway, the first quest steps are as follows:

  • Catch 1 Pokémon - x500 Stardust
  • Catch 2 Pokémon - x500 Stardust
  • Catch 3 Pokémon - x500 Stardust

Rewards: x3 Star Piece

From there, you have to make a choice...

Choose a Path Galarian Stunfisk, Drapion and Jellicent choice differences

Upon completing this step, you’ll be asked to choose between the three paths - Galarian Stunfisk, Drapion and Jellicent.

Though the quest steps from here are the same, the rewards differ - giving you a different Great League team to take away:

  • Galarian Stunfisk choice: Ariados, Pelipper, Galarian Stunfisk
  • Drapion choice: Skarmory, Swampert, Drapion
  • Jellicent choice: Venusaur, Jellicent, Talonflame

This changes the encounter and Candy rewards in the second step.

Depending on your team of choice, they will appear as encounters and Candy rewards in this second step:

  • Use a Charged TM - Encounter based on your team choice
  • Power Up Pokémon 10 times - Encounter based on your team choice
  • Defeat 3 Team Go Rocket Grunts - Encounter based on your team choice

Rewards: x10 Candy for each of your team choices

Currently live is the Evolving Stars event, which includes the release of quest steps 5 to 8 of A Cosmic Companion - the Season of Light special research quest. Elsewhere, be sure to use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. There's also a new special research quest - A Mysterious Incense. Finally - don't forget about the new Prime Gaming rewards every fortnight.

  • Win 5 Trainer Battles in the Great League - x5000 Stardust
