Available during the Season of World of Wonders, Niantic released another Masterwork Research. Instead of focusing on a Legendary or Mythical Pokémon, this particular research allows Trainers another chance at getting a Master Ball. Other rewards were issued during the Masterwork Research (items, Pokémon encounters, etc.), but the main prize is the guaranteed catch power of a Master Ball.

For all the details about this Masterwork Research, check out our guide below:
