Check Out All Pokemon Go Kanto Timed Research Challenges and Rewards

Pokemon Go welcomed recently a special “Go Tour” that features the beautiful region Kanto. The limited-time event comes with Timed Research and other festive bonuses.

Trainers get the chance to meet Pokemon’s original 151 monsters via the new Kanto Celebration. Such news is genuinely intriguing, and even if we don’t see new Pokemon, we still got something to celebrate! The Kanto Celebration is free-to-play, but the Go Tour: Kanto requires buying a ticket.

Here is everything you need to know.

Research Challenges and Rewards

The new Kanto Celebration comes with special Timed Research challenges, including four stages.

You can find the Timed Research in the “Today” tab. Remember that you can complete the challenges until February 27, 8:00 PM Local Time.

Here are all the challenges and rewards:


  • Power up Pokemon 5 times: Paras;
  • Catch 20 Pokemon: Rhyhorn;

More Details

All the Kanto Pokemon are now in their Shiny forms. The chances for all the Reward Encounters to be Shiny are pretty much high.

Remember that the Kanto Celebration doesn’t offer access to Pokemon Go’s first Masterwork Research, “All-in-One 151.” 

Also, even if this Rimed Research is a paid one, there are many perks worth considering! Everything will end this week on February 27, 8:00 PM Local Time. So, hurry up and complete all the tasks.
