Players who want to participate in the Pokemon GO Bug Out event can do so by working on a temporary study. This time study unfolds over three stages, and fans have until Tuesday, August 16, 20:00 local time to go through it all. For those players who would like to learn more about these steps, in this guide you can find a complete list of tasks and rewards presented in the Pokemon GO Bug Out Catch Challenge Timed Research.
It should be noted that PoGO also has a number of bug field research tasks that players must complete, and indeed, some of them overlap with the event-exclusive time study. As such, it is recommended that players spin PokeStops while they work on the bug-catching task to maximize their rewards.

The temporary Bug Out Catch Challenge study mainly consists of two types of tasks. The first type focuses on beetle-type Pokemon, and it should be fairly simple to execute. This is due to the fact that many Pokemon of the “bug” type will have an increased rate of appearance during the Pokemon GO Bug Out event, which makes them quite easy to find.
Another type of task instructs players to perform certain types of throws, and this goes well with the bonuses that are active during the event. In particular, these bonuses give extra XP and Candy for catching Pokemon with Nice, Great and Excellent Throws, encouraging players to be thoughtful when throwing their Poke Balls at PoGO.
As for the rewards that can be obtained during the Bug Out Catch Challenge temporary study, Pokemon encounters are perhaps the most exciting prizes. A meeting with a Grabbin, in particular, may attract the attention of players, since this Pokemon will make its debut during the event. The meeting with the Skeezer and the Scizor Mega Energy awarded at the end may also be of interest.
Pokemon GO is available on Android and iOS devices.
