Niantic has finally added Cosmog to Pokémon GO during the Season of Light. Cosmog is a special legendary Pokémon in the series because, unlike almost all other legendaries, it can evolve into more powerful forms. To get Cosmog, and its evolutions, players will need to work through and complete the Research questline titled A Cosmic Companion.

The quests for A Cosmic Companion questline are a bit different than other Research quests because they are being released incrementally. This means that players who have been playing since the release of the first quest step in A Cosmic Companion can not complete the questline fully until the final step is released, likely leading to Cosmog evolving into Lunala/Solgaleo.

Tips for A Cosmic Companion Questline

Before starting and working through A Cosmic Companion questline, players can use these tips to help make the process easier.

  • Be sure to use Adventure Incense daily to help complete the quests faster. Some quests, like the ones that require players to complete a certain number of catches, can be greatly aided by the Adventure Incense.
  • Save a smaller Egg, like a 2km or 5km Egg, to hatch during the seventh Step in the questline. Having a smaller Egg will mean players can hatch it sooner and move on to the next step.
  • Players will need to send gifts to friends, which can be a problem for many players just starting out. If you need friends, you can use our Pokémon GO Friend Code List to find other active players to help you complete this step faster.
