The Global Challenge event returns in 2019 and features challenges focused on the Team Leaders: Spark, Blanche, and Candela. Each team leader is responsible for rallying Trainers to complete research both around the world and at each of the three Pokémon GO Fest events this summer. If all three teams and the event attendees meet the research goals, a special bonus Raid Day will be unlocked during the bonus week. And if all goals are met by the end of summer, an even more exciting bonus will be unlocked.[1]
