Feebas, the exceedingly rare (and kinda ugly) Pokémon, is coming to Pokémon GO in a special research event.
In an announcement made by Pokémon.com instead of the usual Niantic website, We are told about a special Limited Research Event taking place on January 19, 2019. In it, players will have the chance to capture the rare Feebas in its shiny form.
Feebas has a history of rarity. Originating in the third generation of the Hoenn region, you could only capture the Pokémon in a particular spot during a particular weather pattern. And even then, they were uncommon.
- Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: January 19, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. UTC

To get started, spin the discs at PokéStops and you may receive the first task in the Limited Research Event. Good luck!
