The Tour: Kanto event in Pokémon Go is a celebration of Pokémon Go’s 25th anniversary. The Pokémon appearing in this event are from all over the Kanto region, and with a little luck and determination, you’ll be able to find all 150 to add to your collection. There are several shiny Pokémon appearing in the event, and if you’re looking to add a shiny Ditto to your collection, you need to reach the end of this special research task. The special task you need to complete to capture the shiny Mew is called the All in One 151 Masterwork research.

You won’t be able to participate in this research task unless you purchase the Tour Kanto ticket. You can do this in the Pokémon Go application, and then you’ll need to select the Red or Green versions of the ticket, each with exclusive Pokémon for you to capture and trade with other players.

You want to make sure you complete this special research task to gain access to the Masterwork Research that gives you access to a shiny Mew.

All Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto special research tasks and rewards to catch shiny Ditto

These are all of the tasks you need to complete to finish the Tour Kanto special research and all of the rewards that go along with them.

Silphroad redditors have confirmed that the rewards for the tasks vary on the ticket you purchased. If you have a Red ticket, then you will receive Charmander encounters and Charmander candy. If you purchased a Green ticket you will receive Bulbasaur encounters and Bulbssaur candy. No love for Squirtle here, though.

These will be the only differences. Everything else should remain the same, and yes, everyone on task 7 should have the opportunity to capture a shiny Ditto.
