Pokemon GO: Nothin’ Dull About Duskull Special Research Tasks and Rewards

Pokemon GO’s October Community Day is all about Duskull, and it features an optional Special Research story for players to enjoy. This Special Research is dubbed “Nothin’ Dull About Duskull,” and fans can unlock it by purchasing a ticket for $0.99 USD. For those players that are trying to determine if they should buy Pokemon GO’s Nothin’ Dull About Duskull Ticket, a list of all of its tasks and rewards can be found in this guide.

Before getting into the details of the Special Research, it is worth mentioning that there are several activities in Pokemon GO’s Duskull Community Day that can be accessed without purchasing the ticket. More specifically, there is some event-exclusive Timed Research and Field Research that all players are free to take on. There are also several event effects, such as increased catch Stardust and Incense/Lure durations, that everyone can benefit from.

Completing Pokemon GO’s Duskull Community Day Special Research

In general, the challenges in this Special Research story are quite easy to complete. There is one task that may give players a little bit of trouble, though, and it is the challenge that centers around evolving a Dusclops. Indeed, performing that action requires a Sinnoh Stone in Pokemon GO, and some fans may not have one of those items readily available.

Pokemon GO is available on Android and iOS.
