Pokemon Go Winter Holiday Timed Research & Field Research tasks
The Pokemon Go Winter Holiday 2022 event has arrived, and there are Timed Research and Field Research tasks to complete with plenty of rewards to unlock along the way.
It’s the most magical time of the year as the Winter Holiday event returns to Pokemon Go. Alongside costume Pokemon and the debut of Mega Glalie, players can also purchase a ticket to access festive Timed Research.
The ticket costs $5 (or the equivalent in your local currency) and the rewards on offer include an event-exclusive festive avatar pose, two Incubators, one Incense, and loads of Pokemon encounters like Lapras and Delibird.
If you’re wondering whether it’s worth buying a Winter Holiday ticket, or you’ve already started the Timed Research and just want to know what’s coming your way, we’ve got all of the tasks and rewards below.
