When does Step 5 of the A Cosmic Companion Special Research story unlock?

Step 5 of the A Cosmic Companion Special Research story is scheduled to be released in Pokemon Go on Wednesday, October 5, 2022. The new steps should go live at 10AM in each trainer’s local time.

How to get Cosmog in Pokemon Go

You only need to complete the first step of the A Cosmic Companion Special Research story to unlock an encounter with Cosmog in Pokemon Go. It’s a guaranteed capture, so don’t worry about it fleeing.

This makes it one of the easiest Legendaries to get in Pokemon Go, as they usually require you to defeat them in a 5-Star Raid Battle or complete a lengthy Special Research story before you can catch them.

Based on the mainline games, we already know that Cosmog will evolve into Cosmeom before evolving into either Solgaleo or Lunala, but for now, it doesn’t look like evolution is possible in Pokemon Go.
