The surprise Special Research quest for Pokémon Go’s Sustainability Week 2023 event is called Grass and Gratitude. This Special Research gives you a chance to catch Shaymin, the Gratitude Pokémon. The Special Research will appear during the event but won’t be around for long.
You’ll need to complete several steps throughout the Grass and Gratitude Special Research. Thankfully, it shouldn’t be too much trouble to encounter Shaymin, and if you’ve already caught them for Pokémon Go Fest 2022, you can do so again. This guide covers all tasks and rewards in Pokémon Go’s Grass and Gratitude Special Research.
