The Season of Mischief has begun in Pokemon GO, and its special research story – the Misunderstood Mischief – is stuck at “Step 2/16”, and players are wondering what it is they need to do to unlock this. Since the Misunderstood Mischief in question is the Hoopa, a powerful and popular Pokemon, it’s no wonder that many are looking to get this Pokemon as quickly as possible. In this Misunderstood Mischief Pokemon Go Unlock Step 2/16 guide, we will see what you need to do in order to progress past the Step 2/16 screen.
How To Unlock Step 2/16 in The Misunderstood Mischief Pokemon Go
The first step in this special research is very easy. All you need to do is to get ten nice throws using one Incense and to take ten snapshots of Pokemon which are the wild Psychic-type. The trouble starts when you have finished these and want to progress to the next stage. Normally, when you complete one set of tasks, you will then receive the next batch of things you are required to do. However, instead of this, you will get a rather cryptic message screen. On this screen, instead of the next round of tasks, it will say Step 2/16 and the following message: “Professor Willow is currently performing an investigation regarding this research. Check back for more details soon!”
The cause of this is pretty obvious and basically amounts to developer Niantic not wanting players to blow through this too quickly. The next part looks to unlock September 5th, and the official blog post states that it is then that will be “Hoopa’s Arrival”. So, all that’s left to do in order to unlock Step 2/16 is to wait a couple of more days. We know that this probably isn’t the answer you were looking for, but sometimes all that’s left is to just be patient.
