Victini, a Mythical Pokémon from the Unova region, is now available in Pokémon Go for all players. By completing the Special Research Tasks, “The Feeling of Victory,” players will be able to catch Victini, as well as get a good amount of Victini candy. Our Pokémon Go guide lists out the steps for the Victini quest, as well as the rewards.

Along the way, players will be able to grab some good Pokémon, as well as a few goodies like Lure Modules and Incense.

For those who already caught Victini during Pokémon Go Fest, you’ll just get 20 Victini Candy instead of the Pokémon appearing again.

Victini is not available Shiny yet, and completing “The Feeling of Victory” will not yield a Shiny Victini.

Like the other Mythical Pokémon, Victini is not great at raiding, but it works fairly well in PvP content. Its best PvP moveset is Confusion with Psychic and V-create, according to GamePress.
