Tips for completing the quest "A Mythical Discovery"
- Set a Magikarp as a Companion as soon as you start playing Pokémon GO. Step 6/8 is without a doubt the most difficult of the entire mission, so the sooner you start accumulating Candy, the better.
- Having Magikarp as a Companion also makes it easier to complete the quests to get Candy with Companion, as the pokémon only requires 1km for this.
- The task of capturing a Ditto is also labor intensive. For help, check out our updated guide on how to catch a Ditto in Pokémon GO. Know right away that the quest will only be completed if you capture Ditto while at this stage. Capturing it before opening the quest will not work.
- Give Caxi Fruit to all Kanto pokemons that have two evolutions. Evolving them will ensure that you fill your Pokédex faster and earn the Silver and Gold Medals faster.
