The Pokemon GO Starry Skies Special Research Story has two different paths to choose – Daytime Pokemon or Nighttime Pokemon. We’ve gone through the Research to tell you which of these paths is best to choose and why!

The best path in the Pokemon GO Starry Skies Research depends on when you play the game. If you play more during the day, choose Daytime; if you play more during the night, choose Nighttime.

This is because the rewards for both paths are exactly the same, including the much-requested second Cosmog encounter!

Which path you choose only changes the tasks and not the rewards you get. This means you can pick a path without any worry.

The tasks for the Daytime Path include catching Grass and Bug-type Pokemon, spinning PokeStops, and hatching Eggs. Meanwhile, the Nighttime Path requires catching Ghost or Dark-type Pokemon, completing Field Research, and winning Raids.

Of course, it is easier to find Grass and Bug-types during the day and Ghost and Dark-type Pokemon at night, but the rest of the tasks within this Special Research can be completed at any time.

If you still can’t decide which path to choose, here are all of the Tasks and rewards for Starry Skies Special Research!

Or, refer to the table below to see the differences in Tasks and choose whichever path you think will be easier.
