As a form of apology from Niantic, they’re releasing a special timed research project all about Galarian Ponyta. It’s launching right at the start of the Season of Discovery, due to Galarian Ponyta not having been shiny for a partial time during the final events of May 2021 for the Season of Legends. The timed research is available for everyone, so you won’t need to purchase anything or have access to a particular part of Pokémon Go. It’ll be available as soon as the Season of Discovery arrives in your area at 10 AM.
Make sure to log into the game and complete these tasks before the event runs out. You have until June 8 to complete it. There’s a chance for the Pokémon to be a shiny version, but we do not believe it has an increased chance of it happening.
