Pokémon GO Fest 2022: Catch Special Research – All Quest Steps & Rewards

Catch the day away!

Pokémon GO Fest 2022 is giving players a new experience with its GO Fest Special Research. For this year's event, players are given the choice between three branching paths (Battle, Catch, or Explore) as well as three levels of difficulty (Relaxed, Standard, or Master) when starting their Special Research. Fans can find a full list of all quest steps and rewards for the Catch Special Research Branch below.

All Catch Quests and Rewards

When choosing between the three difficulties, players should keep in mind the rewards for these quests. While there are three difficulties (Relaxed, Standard, and Master), players will receive the same rewards for the vast majority of the quests. The only notable difference in rewards is the Professor Willow Sticker that players will receive as a reward in the seventh quest, with players getting a sticker that corresponds to their quest difficulty. Choosing the higher difficulties is really for players who want to stick their noses in and work hard over the course of the two-day-long event.
