Pokemon Go developer Niantic has finally unveiled the AR game's Ultra Bonuses, and there are a lot of exciting rewards on the way over the next few weeks. Not only will players soon have their first opportunity to catch Gen 5 Pokemon, the Mythical Pokemon Jirachi is also making its official debut in Go through the new Special Research questline called "A Thousand-Year Slumber."
To catch the Mythical Pokemon, you'll first need to complete a variety of Research tasks. There are seven sets of tasks in total, and many of them revolve around Pokemon that hail from the Hoenn region. A few of the quests, however, will require you to do some battling, so you'll need to put in a lot of work to complete the entire line. Once you've cleared all of the Special Research tasks, you'll earn the chance to capture Jirachi.
You can check out the full list of Thousand-Year Slumber quests below. This questline was previously available at this year's Pokemon Go Fests; if you completed it while at one of those events, then you'll earn extra Jirachi Candies instead. All players who complete the questline will also receive a special Jirachi shirt for their avatar.
