A Glimpse of Daylight is the first of two Special Research Story paths available to players who buy their tickets for Global GO Fest 2024 before June 6, 2024. The second part, The Rise of Moonlight, will be available later this month on May 31.

If you want to get into A Glimpse of Daylight, you’ll need to buy a ticket to Global GO Fest by May 6. Tickets for Pokemon GO Fest Global 2024 cost $14.99 USD or local equivalent. They can be purchased in the in-game shop or Pokemon GO web store.

If you miss out on A Glimpse in Daylight but purchase your GO Fest 2024 ticket before June 6, you’ll still be able to access the second Special Research Story when it releases on May 31.

All Glimpse of Daylight Special Research Story Tasks and Rewards

The A Glimpse of Daylight Special Research reward path ultimately leads to an exclusive Sun Crown avatar item. However, there are plenty of smaller rewards along the way as well. Here are all the tasks you’ll need to complete by the end of this Timed Research, and all rewards.

Timed Research does expire, and it looks like this one is set to end around the start of the Global GO Fest event on July 13, 2024. These tasks aren’t terribly difficult and mainly involve basic activities from playing Pokemon GO, so it should be fairly easy to complete the task before it expires even if you claim it on the last possible day.

Pokemon GO is available now.
