“Mythic Blade” is the first event in Pokémon Gos “Mythical Wishes” season, and it introduces mythical Pokémon Keldeo to the game — for a price. The event runs from Dec. 6-11.

For $7.99, you can buy a pass that includes a Special Research Task set, which will give you the Keldeo, along with some special Incense boosted spawns.

The Special Research will unlock on Dec. 10. If you bought the pass and you want this Special Research, you will need to open your game and claim the research between Dec. 10 at 10 a.m. and Dec. 11 at 8 p.m. in your local time. If you do not do so, you will not get the research.

Note that Keldeo will likely come to the game in some kind of free-to-play manner, but not until much later.

We list all the spawns, raid targets, and other bonuses (like the Collection Challenge) below.
