The Pokemon GO Season of Hidden Gems is kicking off in style with the Searching For Gold Research Day!

This one-day event is taking place from 2 PM to 5 PM local time on June 3, 2023, and will include Golden PokeStops, new Field Research Tasks, and a new selection of wild Pokemon spawns.

Searching for Gold Research Day Bonus

The bonus for the Searching For Gold Research Day is that Golden PokeStops will finally be returning.

This is great news for players who want to earn Gimmighoul Coins and evolve Gimmighoul into Gholdengo!

Unfortunately, Gimmighoul will not be spawning at these Golden PokeStops, so if you don’t have one already, you’ll need to know how to catch Gimmighoul in Pokemon GO.

Field Research Reward Pokemon

Spinning a PokeStop during the Pokemon GO Searching for Gold Research Day will give you one of the limited-time Field Research Tasks. The rewards for completing these Tasks include the following Pokemon:

  • Caterpie
  • Magikarp
  • Nosepass
  • Sableye
  • Barboach

All of these reward Pokemon also have boosted shiny odds! This means that you’ll be much more likely to catch shinies from completing Field Research.

Searching For Gold Timed Research

Pokemon GO players can purchase the Searching for Gold Timed Research Ticket from the in-game shop for $1 (or local currency equivalent).

This Timed Research gives players the opportunity to get more encounters with a shiny-boosted Pokemon of their choice. The five options are the same as the Field Research reward Pokemon:

  • Caterpie
  • Magikarp
  • Nosepass
  • Sableye
  • Barboach

This Timed Research expires at 5 PM local time on June 3, so players must be quick to complete it all.
