Tips and Tricks

Niantic’s official announcement post clarifies a few things:

  • As long as you’ve collected the Limited Research during the event window, you can complete it at any time.
  • Shiny Feebas will be unlocked, but it is not guaranteed you will encounter it. Visit more PokeStops to increase your chances
  • Each PokeStop will give out a Limited Feebas Field Research task during the event
  • You can’t revisit the same PokeStop to get more of the same task

The Field Research tasks you can expect to see, where Feebas is the reward, include:

  • Earn 1 Candy Walking Your Buddy
  • Hatch 1 Egg
  • Make 15 Nice Throws
  • Make 10 Great Throws

*Shiny Feebas is not locked to PokéStops.

All Feebas you encounter via Field Research on Feebas day will be Level 15 Pokemon, which means they will be encountered in the following CP range:

Pokemon Min CP @ 15 Max CP @ LVL 15
Feebas 65 117

Unfortunately, Field research encounters are not weather boosted which means your Feebas will always be Level 15. We suggest keeping all of them and trying out your luck with Trading. Maybe the gods of stat re-rolls will be kind to you.
