Greetings, Trainers! During Rhi’s investigation of Professor Willow’s disappearance, they discovered “an odd device among his belongings.” It’s a curious thing, really. On the surface, it looks like a regular Incense device, but it’s blue instead of green or orange. Well, Niantic announced that this device is called Daily Adventure Incense.

This new feature will allow Trainers to explore their surroundings for 15 minutes. Similar to regular Incense, you have to move to get Pokémon to appear (if you don’t, no Pokémon will appear). As for what you may find, Trainers have reported encounters with Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres.

To get Trainers used to the new feature, there are some Special Research stories to partake in. Here are the two Special Research quests that Rhi has issued:
