Catch Clamperl in Pokemon Go's Limited Research Event

Pokemon Go fans have a rare chance to catch new creature Clamperl in the game's upcoming Limited Research Event, which kicks off this weekend.


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.

There's more to the latest Limited Research Event than the fresh arrival of Clamperl. During the event, players will receive two times the Catch Stardust for all Water-type Pokemon, and Water types will appear more frequently out in the wild during the three-hour window. All of the Limited Research tasks will be made available when spinning Photo Discs at nearby PokeStops.

Here are the dates and times when the February 2019 Pokemon Go Limited Research Event will be running:

  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: Feb. 23, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. UTC (GMT +0)
  • The Americas and Greenland: Feb. 23, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PST (GMT −8)
  • Asia-Pacific: Feb. 24, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. JST (GMT +9)

If you've wondered how to earn Clamperl in Pokemon Go, this weekend's Limited Research Event is the key. Log in during the three-hour event and complete the tasks for the opportunity to add Clamperl to your Pokedex.
