Related Articles

Hello Trainers!  Some updates have been pushed, and there is some more detail on the win a raid in X seconds/minutes quests, the pokédex entries for the Galar Slowpoke Family, and more!

You know the drill by now, everything in this article is datamined, and therefore subject to be changed or not even being released at all. So bear that in mind while we go through the pushed updates.

You can read the Pokéminers Reddit post here, go give them an upvote!  Let’s get into it!

Raid Quests

RESOURCE ID: quest_beat_raid_60_seconds 
TEXT: Win a raid in under 60 seconds

This makes sense.

RESOURCE ID: quest_beat_raid_10_minutes 
TEXT: Win a raid in under 10 minutes

10 Minutes?  Ummm…  So there’s a couple different directions that they could potentially go with this one.

  • This could be a time-limited quest, where you have 10 minutes from when you pick up the quest to find and beat a raid.  Not sure how they would handle someone failing the quest though…
  • Or maybe it’s beat a raid within 10 minutes of it hatching, or you first starting the timer?
  • Another option is that this is a bit of a “joke” quest where you literally have to beat a raid in under 10 minutes and the reward is a Galarian Slowpoke.  My money is on this one.
