Throwback Challenge Champion Special Research Guide

Throwback Challenge Special Research is a 5 part Research quest line that rewards players with a chance to encounter Galarian Meowth, Galarian Stunfisk, Genesect and Audino. This guide applies to both Throwback Challenge Champion Special Research and to Throwback Challenge Celebration Special Research. The steps are the same for both quest chains.

In order to pick up the research, you need to have completed all 4 Throwback challenges in May, or you can buy an in-game ticket starting at 01:00 PM local time. The ticket costs $7.99.

We’ve included the Champion special research and the current raid bosses infographics. You are required to do 15 raids to complete the quest line, so better to be prepared.
