The level-up research tasks for those attempting to reach level 50 in Pokémon Go contain some of the game’s hardest challenges. These challenges are meant to encourage trainers to overcome obstacles in a creative fashion. Players will need to complete all level-up research tasks to level up, alongside the massive amount of experience they need to earn. For those looking to make it to level 47, one of the tasks you need to do is win 30 raids using a team of all unique Pokémon species.

There are several ways to go about this, and many of them are easier than having to go through a five-star raid against a legendary Pokémon. Before each raid, all you need to do is optimize the Pokémon choices you take into the battle and make sure none of them are the same. That means you want to have multiple Pokémon of the same typing in your group. So having a Charizard with a Darmanitan is fine, but have two Charizards or two Darmanitans in your roster won’t count towards one of the 30 raids.

To make the process faster, you may want to tackle the lower level raids, such as the one or three-star raids. These battles are normally a bit easier, and so long as you know the type of Pokémon you’ll be battling, you can counter them fairly effectively. If you and a few friends work together to complete a three-star raid, you won’t have to worry too much about your Pokémon team as the sheer number of trainers will be able to take down the weaker Pokémon. Although, you want to make sure you don’t pick Pokémon that are weak to what you’re battling.

You’ll need to do this 30 times, so completing this task won’t happen overnight. Make sure to increase your Pokémon teams’ diversity, and don’t rely on using only a handful of Pokémon in raids.
