The Water Festival Catch Challenge Timed Research has arrived in Pokemon Go, with a brand new set of tasks to complete and rewards to unlock.
Niantic are bringing the Water Festival back for May 2022. As well as boosted Water-type spawns and the Legendary Tapu Fini appearing in Raids, there’s a new Catch Challenge Timed Research to complete.
It’s a good idea to check what rewards you’ll be earning before spending time completing a Timed Research quest like this one, especially as you’ll need to use a lot of Poke Balls to tick off every single task.
Fortunately, we’ve got details of every task and reward – including the newly-debuted Dewpider and Lapras wearing a scarf – featured in the Pokemon Go Water Festival Catch Challenge Timed Research below.
Pokemon Go Water Festival Catch Challenge Timed Research tasks & rewards
Here are all of the tasks you’ll need to complete in the Water Festival Catch Challenge Timed Research, as well as the rewards you can earn along the way:
- Catch 15 Pokemon – 20 Poke Balls
- Catch 50 Pokemon – 25 Great Balls
- Catch 25 Water-type Pokemon – 25 Ultra Balls
- Make 25 Curveball Throws – Dewpider encounter
- Catch 10 different species of Pokemon – 50 Mega Gyarados Energy
Rewards: Lapras with a scarf encounter, 1000 Stardust, and 1000 XP
As there’s only one step for this Water Festival Catch Challenge Timed Research, it hopefully won’t take you too long to complete the whole thing. Then you’ll have a Lapras wearing a scarf to show off!
Having said that, each task requires quite a lot of catching, so you’ll need to get out and explore if you want to meet those goals. Using a Rainy Lure Module can help, as they’ll last for two hours during this event.
