It’s the fifth anniversary of Pokémon Go, and with every anniversary, the Jump-Start Special Research becomes available once again. It’s a research project that returns every year for new trainers to complete to earn a massive amount of XP and gain various items to help them out on their Pokémon Go journey. For those who have already completed it in any of the previous Pokémon Go anniversaries, you will not be able to repeat this special research.

The Jump-Start Special Research will be available starting on July 6 and until the 15.
