Psychic Spectacular Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

Pokemon GO players can find a list of all the Timed Research Tasks for the 2022 Psychic Spectacular event here.

Pokemon GO‘s Season of Light is underway, and one of the first events that players can participate in is the 2022 version of Psychic Spectacular. The limited time event runs from September 6 to September 12 and gives Pokemon trainers the chance to catch a ton of Psychic-type Pokemon. This will come in handy for those trying to complete some Cosmic Companion questline steps, as they require players to catch dozens of Psychic-type Pokemon.

The Psychic Spectacular event in Pokemon GO features Timed Research Tasks and Field Research Tasks, and for the players out there that would like to know more about the Timed Research, this guide will go over all tasks and their rewards.

Pokemon GO: Psychic Spectacular Timed Research Tasks & Rewards

Step 1/1

  • Make 5 Curveball Throws (Elgyem Encounter)
  • Make 10 Curveball Throws (Elgyem Encounter)
  • Make 15 Curveball Throws (Elgyem Encounter)
  • Make 20 Curveball Throws (Elgyem Encounter)
  • Make 25 Curveball Throws (Elgyem Encounter)
  • Make 30 Curveball Throws (Elgyem Encounter)
  • Make 35 Curveball Throws (Elgyem Encounter)
  • Make 42 Curveball Throws (Elgyem Encounter)

Step 1 Completion Rewards: Elgyem Encounter, 30x Poke Balls, 10x Great Balls

The Timed Research Tasks for the Psychic Spectacular event are pretty straightforward, as one can tell by looking at the repeated Curveball tasks. There are tasks in total, and completing each one will grant players an encounter with Elgyem, a Psychic-type Pokemon introduced in the Unova region.

To see the list of Timed Research Tasks in-game, players can press on the binoculars icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen and then press the ‘Today’ tab.

The good thing about there being a ton of Elgyem to catch is that players should be able to gather enough Elgyem Candy to evolve it into Beheeyem. 50 Candy will be needed, and players should try to use Pinap Berries during the encounter to get more Candy from the catch.

Once players finally make 42 Curveball Throws in Pokemon GO, they’ll earn yet another encounter with Elgyem, as well as 30 Poke Balls and 10 Great Balls. The trick to doing the perfect Curveball throw is to spin the Poke Ball in the center of the screen (clockwise or counterclockwise) and then throw it in the opposite direction. Hitting the inside of the circle surrounding Pokemon will increase the catch rate, so aim carefully.

Pokemon GO is available on Mobile devices.
