Pokémon Go has a new Special Research Task set, titled “Let’s Go,” which is the same name as the event that brought it to the game (confusing!).

The research is free, and you have until June 1 to claim it. Once you log in and begin, it’ll stick around forever, so there’s no rush in completing it.

The rewards are completely free, and sees the debut of the Master Ball. Thankfully, tasks are easy enough to complete, so it’s worth completing as you play your usual amount of Pokémon Go. In other words — no specific need to grind!
