How to Complete Pokemon Go's Colossal Discovery Special Research Quest

Pokemon Go has launched a special one day mini-event that focuses on the Mythical Pokemon Regigigas. Players who purchase an Event Ticket today can participate in "A Colossal Discovery," a new Special Research Quest that culminates with an encounter with the Mythical Pokemon Regigigas. The event is controversial among fans as players will need to pay $7.99 to participate, although the event ticket does come with a Sinnoh Stone, an Unova Stone, and ten Premium Raid Passes in addition to access to the Special Research Quest.
