The Pokemon Go Holidays 2021 event is finally here, and that means there are a bunch of new Field Research tasks to complete with festive-themed encounters on offer as rewards.

To mark the festive celebrations going on around the world, Niantic are once again delivering a special gift to Trainers with a Holidays event featuring new costumes, the return of the Holiday Cup, and a Winter Wonderland mini-event on Christmas Day.

As always, this event also features new Field Research tasks to discover by spinning different Pokestops. Rewards on offer include Pokemon like Stantler and Cubchoo in cute Holiday Costumes, so it’s definitely worth working through them all.


Below, you’ll find all of the Field Research tasks you can unlock during the Holidays 2021 event and the rewards you’ll get for completing them.
