Special Research Update for Fashion Week in PokÃ©mon Go
PokÃ©mon Go Fashion Week brings the third update to the Mischief Mischief Special Research Quest, which is gradually being released throughout the Season of Mischief.
Quest steps 6 through 8 are now available to be completed, and you can read more about the new challenges in our Mischief Mischief Guide.
According to the official PokÃ©mon Go blog, the next update will arrive in October as part, at the time of writing, of a currently unannounced event.
‘Fashion Week’ quest stages and rewards in PokÃ©mon Go
Below is each quest step and reward for the Fashion Week Timed Research Quest in PokÃ©mon Go. Due to the fact that this is a Timed Research Quest, you must complete this quest before the end of the event if you want to earn all the rewards on offer.
This includes obtaining the Furfrou Wig for free before it enters the PokÃ©mon Go in-game store after Fashion Week ends.

Everything you need to know about Fashion Week in PokÃ©mon Go
Fashion Week marks the release of Furfrou, the poodle-inspired PokÃ©mon Gen 6, in PokÃ©mon Go. Furfrou, once caught, will be in its natural form, but depending on your region you can give it a variety of toppings thanks to the use of Candy and Stardust.
Thanks to Finding Your Voice, players who have not purchased a ticket for Go Fest 2021 can now add the legendary Meloetta to their PokÃ©dex. If you’ve been to Go Fest this year, you’ll instead receive additional Meloetta candies for completing this special research quest.
According to Fashion Week, Butterfree, Sneasel, and Blitzle all have new forms of costume to collect. You can also catch costumed PokÃ©mon from last year’s Fashion Week – Smoochum, Kirlia, Shinx, and Croagunk – and all of those costumed PokÃ©mon will have shiny forms available.
These PokÃ©mon will appear in the wild, but you will also be able to fight in Sneasel and Shinx costumes in One Star Raids, while Butterfree and Kirlia costumes will be in Three Star Raids.
All 7 km eggs collected in freebies will also have a different egg pool during Fashion Week:
Finally, much like the Go Tour Challengers, you’ll be able to find and battle Fashion Trainers at PokÃ©Stops throughout Fashion Week. Defeating Trainers will earn you a number of rewards!
The season of mischief has arrived! Current events include Go Battle League Season 9, the addition of Raid Achievements, and the Misunderstood Mischief Research Quest. Shiny Ditto can also be found in the wild and this delicate PokÃ©mon is now appearing as new creatures! Meanwhile, the last major update saw an increase in level cap – including the addition of XL Candy, increases to some sources of XP, and the addition of Platinum Medals. Inkay and Malamar are now in PokÃ©mon Go!
The date and times of Fashion Week in PokÃ©mon Go explained
PokÃ©mon Go Fashion Week runs from Tuesday, September 21 to Tuesday, September 28 – starting at 10 a.m. (local time) and ending at 8 p.m. (local time).
This will give you plenty of time to complete the Timed Research quest, find the new Pokemon in costume, and catch a Furfrou or two.
Have fun during this year’s Fashion Week!
