If you were lucky enough to get yourself a ticket then it’s finally time for the Special Weekend May 2021 event in Pokémon GO. Select players in the US and Mexico will be getting the new Timed Research, along with some additional bonuses starting on Saturday, May 29th at midnight. They’ll then have until 11:59pm on Sunday the 30th to complete it. And with some great rewards, you’ll certainly want to get it finished up. To help, here’s the Special Weekend – May 2021 Timed Research tasks and rewards for Pokémon GO.

Special Weekend Verizon – May 2021 Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

Below is a list of all of the tasks you need to complete to finish the new Special Weekend – May 2021 Timed Research, which can be found on the Today View of the research menu. However, this is exclusive to the US, Mexico, and Japan, and only for those who were able to get a ticket. Once you have that activated you just need to wait until midnight on May 29th for it to activate. You can then start working on the tasks listed below, and hopefully complete it so you receive all of the rewards, including the two Deino encounters.
