Pokemon Go A Mega Discovery is the latest special research to feature in Pokemon Go, and it's focused on the recent introduction of Mega Evolutions. While Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise all currently feature in Mega Raids, the tasks and rewards for A Mega Discovery are all about the fourth Pokemon that can Mega Evolve right now; Beedrill. Here are all of the Pokemon Go A Mega Discovery rewards, tasks, and more, so you can beeline through it... pun intended.

A Mega Discovery isn't a particularly long special research, as there are only four sets of tasks to complete in total. The rewards are more than worth it though, as by the end of it, you'll be able to Mega Evolve Beedrill.

When you complete all four stages, you'll have enough Mega Beedrill Energy to evolve it twice, since each Mega Evolution is only temporary. Later down the line, we're expecting more methods of obtaining Mega Energy to be introduced, but for now your Beedrill is limited to this special research.
