Niantic promised us some new Special Research here in September, and man if they arenât just squeaking by at the finish live. âA Feeling of Victoryâ just went live in the game, following a long tradition of making mythical Pokemon from Pokemon GO Fest available for special research a little while later. And while Pokemon GO Fest was a little different this year, the tradition holds.
For those that havenât been keeping up with things, the research will reward Victini when you complete it. A lot of players already have it, but it never hurts to have a second one. Datminers have confirmed that there are 6 steps, but itâs a longish one and so it will take a second to confirm all of those. Hereâs what Iâve seen so far:
So while there may well be some other interesting rewards along the wayâand weâll check back once Iâve had a chance to make it through some of these more arduous stepsâwe do know what the end result will be, and thatâs a Victini encounter. Itâs a fun little creature, Victini, and like other mythicals, this is likely going to be your only chance to get it if you didnât get it at GO Fest.

Here are the changes that are staying, as per the Pokemon GO Blog:
