Pokémon GO Glimmers of Gratitude – Tasks and rewards

All the steps to get Shiny Shaymin.

Now Sinnoh Tour is out the way, trainers attention will turn to the new Pokémon GO Glimmers of Gratitude research.

This Masterwork research is the fourth in Pokémon GO history. Masterwork research is very hard, arduous to complete and will be 'time-gated' in several places.

The Pokémon GO Glimmers of Gratitude research is worth the grind though. It will reward a guaranteed encounter with a Shiny Shaymin.

If you don't have the Glimmers of Gratitude research then you're all out of luck. This was a paid ticket that was only available till February 25th. It might come back one day, but for now it is no longer available to purchase.
