A Thousand Year Slumber is a special research quest line in Pokemon GO that unlocks the mythical Pokemon Jirachi. Jirachi Special Research was made available on August 20th 2019, following players successfully completing the 2019’s Ultra Unlock research challenge. This page lists all Jirachi special research stages, tasks and rewards. After completing the challenge, players can pick up a special Jirachi T-shirt in the in-game shop. In order to get the quest, you need to complete at least Stage 3 of A Mythical Discovery.

Wow! That sure was loud, but it did the trick! Loudred worked just like an alarm clock for poor Snorlax. I should make up for the rude awakening with some Berries… Well, we’ve learned something important here, and I think this method could work to awaken even the deepest of sleepers. If mg calculations are correct, the wish-granting Mythical Pokemon might be ready to awaken soon, and we should be prepared to do the waking! The text says that the Pokemon is a Steel- and Psychic-type, so I think a good next step is to catch a few Pokemon with similar characteristics. We’ll need a few extra hands to get this done, too. Could you get some fellow Trainers to help out?
|Catch 50 Psychic- or Steel-type Pokemon||2500 XP|
|Power up Pokemon 10 times||2500 XP|
|Send 10 Gifts to friends||2500 XP|
You can use Magnetic lure to attract more Steel types.
Good work, PLAYERNAME. With the help of your research, I’ve been able to decipher more of this ancient text. It says that when the Mythical Pokemon awakens, it will grant any wishes written on notes attached to its head. Another interesting tidbit: If this Pokemon senses danger, it will fight without awakening. Up for a Trainer Battle, PLAYERNAME? If the battle causes any reactions nearby, I have sensors set up to detect them. It might seem like a long shot, but I have a good feeling about this!
|Battle a Team Leader 3 times|
|Win against another Trainer 7 times||3000 XP|
|Win 5 raids||3000 XP|
It worked! I’m picking up some vibrations nearby. I think we’re on the right track. Maybe the Mythical Pokemon is close to awakening. Since what we’re doing is working, let’s keep it up. We need to pull out all the stops, though, and the timing has to be just right. I’ll hold things down here with Loudred while you keep focusing on encountering Steel- and Psychic-type Pokemon. If you can do that, I think it’ll help the Mythical Pokemon see that you’re a worthy Trainer!
|Take 5 photos of Steel or Psychic Pokémon|
|Make 3 excellent curveball throws|
|Spin a Pokéstop 7 days in a row||4000 XP|
Simply astonishing! We encountered the Steel- and Psychic-type Pokemon Jirachi! That was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Well, once in several lifetimes, if Jirachi truly only wakes once every thousand years. You’ve become such an accomplished Trainer, PLAYERNAME. Thank you for going on this amazing adventure with me. You can bet I’ll be in touch whenever another exciting research project comes up. Until then, let’s get out there and GO!
Trainers who have already received Jirachi will be rewarded with x20 Jirachi Candy and Jirachi T-Shirt.
Upon completing the A thousand-year Slumber, players will be able to pick up a special Jirachi themed T-shirt from the in-game shop. The shirt is exclusive for players who complete the quest line, similarly to the previously released Mew and Celebi shirts.
