The Mythical Pokémon Shaymin arrives in free Special Research!


After initially appearing during Pokémon GO Fest 2022, it seems that the Mythical Pokémon Shaymin, the Gratitude Pokémon, is now featured in global Special Research! This Special Research is free and will be available to all Trainers—complete it to encounter Shaymin in its Land Forme!*

*Trainers who caught Shaymin during Pokémon GO Fest 2022 will still be able to access and complete the Special Research, and they will have the opportunity to encounter Shaymin again.

Shaymin’s global debut

Shaymin, the Gratitude Pokémon, will make its global Pokémon GO debut in its Land Forme!


Gratitude is spreading globally!

The Special Research story Grass and Gratitude will be available to all Trainers for free starting during Sustainability Week, starting April 20, 2023, 10:00 a.m. local time! Trainers who complete the Special Research will earn an encounter with the Mythical Pokémon Shaymin.

It turns out that Shaymin has been sighted in the area, but Professor Willow needs your help to track it down! Assist Professor Willow, and perhaps the gratitude you show on the way will be key to finding this elusive Pokémon.
