The Pokemon Go Snubbull Limited Research event is already live in some regions and will be followed by the rest of the world soon.

The event will start on May 9, 8am in your local time and will finish 14 hours later at 10pm local time. As the name of the event suggests, research will only be available through these times.

Naturally, there will be plenty of opportunity to catch the fairy-type Pokemon, Snubbull. In fact there will be 68 chances to do so, from 80 tasks in total.

This means you'll have a 42% chance of finding a perfect IV Snubbull, assuming you complete every task and do all the encounters. You'll have to trust us on the math, the numbers are complicated!

Of course, this also an excellent opportunity to obtain a shiny Snubbull but the odds of doing this aren't as clear. Shinies are normally increased in such events however, so you do stand a good chance.
