  3. Look for the “Call all Pokémon GO Trainers!” section under Special Event.
  4. Select the banner that says “Play Research, unlock rewards” and features Charcadet.
  5. You’ll be at the listing for the “Member Exclusive: Partner Research” and can tap the 10 Play Points button to claim the Partner Research.
  6. After spending the Play Points, you’ll be given a code to redeem via the Pokémon GO Offer Redemption page.
