New Pokémon GO Quests, Increased Candy XL chance and more hinted in a new text update

Hello coaches! Some updates have been sent, and there are more details on the missions to win a raid in X seconds / minutes, the pokedex entries for the Galar Slowpoke family, and more!

By now you know the drill, everything in this article is data-minded and therefore subject to change or not even published. So keep that in mind as we review submitted updates.

You can read the Pokéminers post on Reddit. here, Give them a vote in favor! Let’s get into it!

Raid missions

RESOURCE ID: quest_beat_raid_60_seconds 
TEXT: Win a raid in under 60 seconds

This makes sense.

RESOURCE ID: quest_beat_raid_10_minutes 
TEXT: Win a raid in under 10 minutes

10 minutes? Ummm… So there are a couple of different directions that could potentially go with this one.

  • This could be a limited-time mission, where you have 10 minutes from when you resume the mission to find and defeat a raid. However, I’m not sure how they would handle someone who failed the mission …
  • Or maybe it has made it through a raid within 10 minutes of hatching, or is it the first time you’ve started the timer?
  • Another option is that it is a “prank” mission in which you literally have to overcome a raid in less than 10 minutes and the reward is a Galarian Slowpoke. My money is on this one.
