Pokémon GO Master Ball Special Research, Your chance to secure a Master Ball

Trainers, today marks the last day to complete the Timed Investigation: Master Ball in Pokémon GO. This Research has been challenging, to say the least, and for those who can’t complete it by the deadline, there’s an alternative option: a paid Special Research that awards a Master Ball.

The Timed Investigation: Master Ball, active from September 1, 2023, to November 21, 2023, is arguably the toughest Research ever introduced in Pokémon GO. It required players to catch 1,000 Pokémon, win 60 Raids, hatch 30 Eggs, make 120 Excellent Throws, complete 150 Field Research tasks, explore 50km, spin 300 PokéStops, and earn 100,000 XP and Stardust. To complete this on time, players needed to meet daily goals including catching 13 Pokémon, winning 1 Raid, making 2 Excellent throws, hatching 1 Egg, exploring 5km, completing 2 Field Research tasks, and spinning 4 PokéStops.

Understanding the challenge, Pokémon GO is offering a Master Ball ticket as a solution for players who were unable to complete the second Master Ball Timed Investigation. This Special Research, which offers three steps, is much easier to complete and less time-consuming and will be available starting with the Party Up! event on November 22, 2023, at 10 AM local time.

Here’s how to get the Master Ball this time. Well, it will cost you $7.99.
