Thoughts on this research

This research is pretty simplistic. It only really has four stages to complete. The only stumbling blocks that could delay completing it are the 5 great throws in a row or finding 6 Rocket Grunts. Both of these challenges themselves are somewhat simplistic

Zarude is definitely the best reward from this research and becomes the first viable Grass type Pokemon to use in the Master league for PvP. Hopefully you get a good IV Zarude!

The Combee reward is nice for the base 750 stardust on catch.
