Pokemon Go Mystery Bonus Hour has successfully concluded yesterday & it gave players Double Transfer Candy from 6 to 7 pm in their local time zone. Apart from this, Genesect has also debuted in Pokémon Go through a Special Research story event.

Speaking of Genesect, it is a dual-type Bug/Steel Mythical Pokémon which was introduced in Generation V. The Pokemon does not evolve, however, its attacks & type depend on the drive inserted on its back.


Genesect’s Special Research Event is called A Drive to Investigate & it has been divided into five parts which feature varieties of tasks. Players will also get different rewards after the completion of each task. You can check the complete list of ‘A Drive to Investigate’ research tasks down below along with rewards.
