Best Path to Choose in the Pokemon GO Battle Weekend Challenge

Both paths have the same rewards so you’ll want to pick your path depending on what you prefer to do in the game as well as what other Research you’re currently completing

If you want to catch Rotom by completing the Anniversary Event Timed Research we recommend going for the Raids, Grunts, and Gyms! path.

This is because that Research also involves Raiding and Gym Battles so you’ll be able to progress both at once.

However, it’s worth choosing the GO Battle League! path if you prefer battling. These goals should also be easier to complete thanks to the Pokemon GO July Battle Weekend bonuses!

Good luck completing the Battle Weekend Research in Pokemon GO! Also, make sure you know how to complete the new Field Notes: Team GO Rocket Research and track down Giovanni with his new Shadow Pokemon!
