Pokemon Go Pick a Path: Galarian Stunfisk, Drapion or Jellicent?

The Pokemon Go Team Building: Great League Timed Research quest asks players to choose a path between Galarian Stunfisk, Drapion or Jellicent – but which one is best? Let’s find out.

To celebrate the 2022 Pokemon World Championships, Pokemon Go players can unlock a Timed Research story by watching Twitch streams of the event and waiting for a limited-time code to appear.

If you’re lucky enough to redeem one of these codes, you’ll be prompted to choose a path between Galarian Stunfisk, Drapion, or Jellicent as part of the Team Building: Great League Timed Research questline.

To help you decide which path to choose, let’s take a look at the Pokemon you might encounter with each option and give our recommendation on the best decision to make.

Which path should you choose in Pokemon Go Team Building: Great League Timed Research?

Our recommendation for the Team Building: Great League Timed Research quest is: choose the Jellicent path as this leads to a well-rounded squad, including a Talonflame with the excellently recommended attack Incinerate.

The next best option (in our opinion) would be the Drapion trail. While Drapion itself isn’t that handy, you get a Swampert and Skarmory, both of which are considered top competitors in the Great League.

That said, the best way to make this decision is probably by looking at the Pokemon encounters you unlock for each path and finding out which one you need the most – there may be a Pokemon you don’t already have!

Teambuilding Galarian Stunfisk path explained

If you choose the Galarian Stunfisk path, you will earn encounters with Ariados, Pelipper and Galarian Stunfisk as well as 10 Candy for each Pokemon as a reward for completing the Timed Research quest.

Galarian Stunfisk is arguably the greatest Great League competitor of all time, so that’s an important addition to your collection. Pelipper is a pretty decent Water/Flying type, though Ariados isn’t really worth using.

Team Building Drapion path explained

If you choose the Drapion path, you will earn encounters with Skarmory, Swampert and Drapion as well as 10 Candy for each Pokemon as a reward for completing the Timed Research quest.

Skarmory and Swampert are both excellent choices for your Great League team and they work incredibly well together. Unfortunately, Drapion is probably the weakest Pokemon on offer in this Timed Research.

Teambuilding Jellicent path explained

If you choose the Jellicent path, you will earn encounters with Talonflame, Venusaur and Jellicent as well as 10 Candy for each Pokemon as a reward for completing the Timed Research quest.

All three of these Pokemon have a place in the Great League meta and together they make a brilliant team to use. In fact, Talonflame will know the Incinerate movement, which is usually exclusive to Community Day.

Ultimately, the path you choose in the Pokemon Go Team Building: Great League Timed Research quest is down to personal preference, but hopefully our recommendations helped you make up your mind!
