Pokémon Go A Mystic Hero quest steps and rewards

How to get a Blanche-themed accessory Lapras.

A Mystic Hero is the special research quest released in Pokémon Go during the A Mystic Hero event in April 2023.

At the time of writing, the A Mystic Hero quest is the only way to earn a Blanche-themed accessory Lapras in Pokémon Go. Hopefully we’ll see this costume Pokémon become available through other means in the future, but, currently, if you want this special Lapras you need to complete this quest.

To help you add Blanche-themed accessory Lapras to your costume Pokémon collection, we’ve outlined the A Mystic Hero quest steps and rewards below.

'A Mystic Hero' quest steps in Pokémon Go

Below you’ll find the quest steps for the A Mystic Hero special research quest in Pokemon Go, along with this quest’s rewards.

A Mystic Hero was released into Pokémon Go during the A Mystic Hero event on Thursday 13th April 2023. At the time of writing, we don’t know whether this special research quest will be available once the event ends, so, if you want to complete it, we recommend playing Pokémon Go at least once before Monday 17th April at 8pm (local time).

Once you’ve unlocked A Mystic Hero, you’ll be able to complete it at your own pace thanks to it being a special research quest.

The Season of Rising Heroes is here! Currently, the A Mystic Hero event is running and you can complete the A Mystic Hero special research quest. A new Team Go Rocket quest - From The Shadows - has been released, along with a shake up of the Giovanni and Team Go Rocket Leaders lineups. As you continue your Pokémon Go adventure, make sure to battle in the new Go Battle League season. Don't forget to take a look at the Remote Raid Passes changes or, if you purchased it, work on the Masterwork Research: Wish Granted quest. Elsewhere, be sure to use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. This incense may also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

How does A Mystic Hero work in Pokémon Go

A Mystic Hero is a special research quest in Pokémon Go, which means you’re free to complete it slowly or rush through for the rewards.

This quest became available on Thursday, 13th April at 10am (local time) as part of the A Mystic Hero event. Due to being part of said event, we, at the time of writing, don’t know whether it will be available once it ends. For this reason, we recommend playing Pokémon Go at least once during the A Mystic Hero event to ensure you’ve unlocked the special research quest which shares its name.

Putting this aside, A Mystic Hero works exactly the same as other special research quests in Pokémon Go; you’re challenged to complete a series of tasks in return for rewards and, after doing so, you unlock the quest step’s overall rewards along with the following step. You then repeat this process until the quest is completed.

Good luck finishing the A Mystic Hero special research!
