According to a recent Niantic announcement, Pokemon Go Feebas-themed event would take place on January 19th. The event would focus on the Water-type Pokémon Feebas and Field Research tasks. The Pokemon Go Feebas-themed event begins on January 19th at 2 PM EST (11 AM PST) and would last until 5 PM EST (2 PM PST).
“Spin the PhotoDisc at nearby PokeStops to obtain Field Research tasks that lead to encounters with Feebas. And, if you’re lucky, you just might find a Shiny Feebas,” hinted Niantic in their recent announcement, published yesterday on the official Pokemon Go site.
Even though it’s only a very short-lasting event, the gamers would have the unique opportunity to grab Feebas which is a very rare monster in Pokemon Go. Also, catching the Shiny Feebas is even much rarer so you should take advantage of the Feebas-themed Pokemon Go even of January 19th.

Even more, Feebas is a unique monster in Pokemon Go as it requires an additional step to evolve. In order to develop it, coaches have to collect 100 Feebas Candies, but also to make 20 kilometers with Feebas as their buddy.
As Niantic announced, the Pokemon Go Feebas-themed event would come with “Limited Research tasks which will be available when you spin Photo Discs at PokeStops.” Also, by completing the Limited Research missions, you will get rewards, and you’ll have the chance to meet Feebas. “You may also encounter a Shiny Feebas,” Niantic said.
“Feebas migrate quickly during Limited Research, so exploring is key! As long as you’ve collected the Limited Research during the event window, you can complete it at any time. Don’t forget: you’ll need to venture onward to many PokéStops in order to get new Field Research tasks and encounter as many Feebas as possible,” Niantic explained.
