There are a lot of things happening right now with Pokémon Go. For instance, Cobalion, part of a Legendary trio, is set to arrive in raids on November 4. Even before that, trainers get a chance to go against three returning Pokémon.

Tomorrow, November 2, is just as exciting with Colossal Discovery. This Special Research story event is available between 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM, in your local time zone.

This Colossal Discovery introduces a Pokémon that is originally from the Sinnoh region. Known as Regigigas, this Pokémon is closely related to Regirock, Regice, and Registeel.

To get access to this unique limited-time experience, you need to purchase a ticket. Since the event doesn't have a set location, it means that you can be part of the event regardless of where you live, as long as you have a ticket.

Getting access to this event gives you:

  • An early-access encounter with Regigigas.
  • A Colossal Discovery medal.
  • As much as 10 extra Raid Passes at no cost during the Special Research story event time period when you spin a Photo Disc at a Gym.
    • The Raid Passes are not going to be available once the event period is over and trainers are not allowed to hold more than one Raid Pass at once.
  • Special Research Rewards:
    • Unova Stone
    • Sinnoh Stone
    • Exclusive Avatar Pose
New rewards.

Small Tip

There's a chance that you won't want to access the event alone. To complete the Special Research, you need to take down Regirock, Regice, and Registeel in five-star raids. That's right, you need to defeat and capture these three to get a chance to fight Regigigas. The good news is that if you're unable to get Regigigas, this Pokémon is going to be available next month through EX Raids.
