Niantic tends to keep fresh events ready for Pokemon Go players, and this weekend's Limited Research Event is no exception. In addition to the usual bonuses to items like Catch Stardust, this weekend's limited-time event gives players their first chance to catch a Clamperl and add the creature to their Pokedex. Wondering how to catch Clamperl in Pokemon Go? Read on to learn more about the upcoming February 2019 Limited Research Event.
How to catch Clamperl in Pokemon Go
According to the official Pokemon Go blog, the latest Limited Research Event gives players a three-hour window to face, defeat, and hopefully capture a Clamperl. To get a shot, they'll need to complete the game's special Field Research tasks during the limited time frame. Assuming they do, they'll encounter Clamperl, and will stand a chance of adding the new creature to their Pokedex.
