Pokemon Go Adding Mew Through New Quest System

Share

Pokemon Go is asking players to help with "field research" to find the Mythical Pokemon Mew. Special Research tasks are story-driven activities that may be requested by Professor Willow himself, and they will unfold as the Trainer completes more objectives. These will "take [players] on a journey to make important discoveries!"

Research tasks will go out beginning this week, bringing new activities and challenges that offer in-game rewards when completed. The research tasks have a range of difficulty, and there's no limit to how many you can complete in a single day.

Firefighter Michael R Davidson was assigned to the nozzle and was to use the hoseline to suppress the rapidly spreading blaze. He was devoted husband and father of four who became the 1,150th firefighter to make what they call the "Supreme Sacrifice".

This is a huge addition for Pokemon Go and potentially solves numerous issues that players have complained about for months. You'll be getting these tasks by spinning nearby PokeStops, each time you want new research missions. Your first project completion each day will give you a stamp, and seven stamps are good for a research breakthough that could potentially lead you to an encounter with Mew or another legendary Pokémon. Legendary Pokemon encounters were previously limited to players who could participate in raids (which meant finding both a raid and other players), so this opens the game up to those who don't have easy access to gyms. Throwing the legendary Mew into the mix is sure to get players excited, too, as the little pink Pokemon has a lot of mystery surrounding it, including its ability to learn any move (assuming Niantic sticks to the classic games).
