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

Explore your surroundings!

Pokémon GO Fest 2022 is here, and Ticket-holders are getting a whole new GO Fest experience with the Special Research tasks. Players will be given a choice of three branching paths (Catch, Explore, or Battle) as well as three difficulty levels (Relaxed, Standard, or Master) to choose from when starting their Special Research for the day. These paths and difficulties will change the tasks given to the player throughout GO Fest 2022. Below is the full list of quest steps and rewards for the Explore branch of GO Fest 2022's Special Research.

All Catch Quests and Rewards

Players should note that while different path choices (Catch, Explore, and Battle) lead to different outcomes as far as quests and rewards go, the different difficulty levels (Relaxed, Standard, or Master) will generally result in the same rewards but with much harder tasks.

The higher difficulties are for players that really want to work hard over the course of the two-day-long event. The only thing that is notably different among the difficulty choices is the sticker that players will receive in the seventh quest. Players should receive a Professor Willow Sticker that corresponds to the difficulty of the path that the player has chosen.
