Pokemon Go: All Keeping Sharp Special Research Tasks & Rewards

The Keeping Sharp Special Research has several unique tasks in Pokemon Go, and this guide covers every reward you can earn from it.

The Axew Community Day event for June 2023 has arrived in Pokémon Go. During the event, Axew will spawn in the wild at an increased rate, and there’s a good chance for you to encounter a shiny version of this Pokemon for the first time.

For those who bought the Keeping Sharp Special Research, the ticket will activate when the event starts in your respective timezone. There will be a handful of tasks that appear and specific rewards for each of those tasks. This guide covers every task you’ll need to complete and what you get for finishing them in Pokemon Go.

This Special Research will not be available to every Pokemon Go player. You will need to make a separate purchase before the Axew Community Day event starts on June 10, 2023, at 2 PM and ends at 5 PM in your local time zone. To make sure you have time to finish up each task, purchasing it right before the event starts and participating throughout the day is the best idea.

Because this is one of the few Pokemon Go Community Day events featuring a Dragon-type Pokemon, it is a worthwhile investment to grab the Special Research ticket. Axew is a decent Pokemon, and its final form, Haxorus, gets an excellent boost from the exclusive Community Day move: Breaking Swipe.
