Deino is a rare Dark/Dragon-type Pokemon whose final evolution is Hydreigon, a powerful Pseudo Legendary for Raids and the Master League.

Don’t forget to use a Pinap Berry for each Deino capture to get double Candy and evolve it quickly. Once you get Hydreigon, use the moves Bite and Brutal Swing.

Ceruledge can evolve either into the Ghost/Fire-type Ceruledge or the Psychic/Fire-type Armarouge. If you’re not sure which one is better, we recommend going with Ceruledge.

It has a higher Attack stat of 239 and an offensively better type combination, giving it an edge over Armarouge, though the latter does fare pretty well in the Great and Ultra League.

You need 10 Google Play Points to grab the Partner Research, available to Google Play Point members in the United States, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan.

It was initially only in the US but was soon rolled out to the countries above. We’ll update this article if and when the Research is available in other locations.

You have until Monday, July 15, 2024, at 11:59 PM local time to complete this Partner Research. Most of the tasks require you to go outside and play. Finding a park or a path with plenty of PokeStops would help complete it quickly.

Once you catch Charcadet, getting Ceruledge and Armarouge requires you to beat 30 Ghost and 30 Psychic types while you have it as your Buddy. Beating Team Go Rocket Grunts is the best way to get this done.
