As teased, Genesect is coming to Pokemon Go this month. The Mythical Pokemon will make its debut in Niantic’s popular mobile game as part of a new Special Research event. However, you’ll need to buy a virtual ticket if you’re hoping to catch it.
Genesect will be available as part of a new Special Research story quest called A Drive to Investigate, which kicks off at 8 AM local time on March 20 and runs until 10 PM local time on March 26. As previously mentioned, this story quest will only be accessible if you have a virtual ticket, which can be purchased ahead of the event from Pokemon Go’s in-game shop for $8 USD.
Purchasing the ticket will grant you access to various Special Research tasks that culminate in an encounter with Genesect. If you don’t buy a ticket, you’ll have a chance to encounter the new Mythical Pokemon in EX Raids beginning in April. In addition to Genesect, the Special Research story quest will lead to encounters with other Bug- and Steel-type Pokemon such as Pinsir, Scizor, Skarmory, Karrablast, Shelmet, and Durant.
