The Special Research A Drive to Investigate featuring Genesect is now live in some parts of the world and thanks to the Pokemon Go Community we now have the complete list of tasks, rewards, and encounters.
The A Drive to Investigate Special Research is paid to play research that offers a variety of tasks and cool rewards. That being said, only those who got a ticket are able to enjoy all the features. In addition, Genesect research is designed to be played solo and all tasks can be done while staying at home.
The A Drive to Investigate Special Research is five-stage research. Each stage offers three tasks, that’s a total of 15 tasks, which one must complete in order to earn bonuses, catch Genesect and earn Genesect Candy.
That being said, let’s take a look at the list of all special research tasks and rewards below.
