Pokemon GO: Cotton-Winged Bird Special Research Tasks and Rewards

Pokemon GO’s May Community Day event kicks off on May 15, featuring Swablu, the Flying- and Normal-type Pokemon. Throughout the event duration, players can encounter more Swablu in the wild, and if they’re lucky, they can even find a Shiny Swablu. Evolving Swablu into Altaria during the event and up to two hours after will grant a special attack: Moonblast. We have a complete list of the Pokemon GO Cotton-Winged Bird Special Research tasks and rewards down below.

The Swablu Community Day event begins on May 15, 2021, from 11 am to 5 pm local time. Trainers can pick up the Cotton-Winged Bird Ticket ($0.99) now to access the Cotton-Winged Bird Special Research on May 15, 2021. As always, you must play during the specified time to receive all the special event bonuses.
