Winter Holiday Pokémon GO – All Timed Research Rewards

We hope you like Ice-types.

Winter Holiday 2022

Winter Holiday Part One has officially begun in Pokémon GO, which means it’s time for plenty of icy rewards. Instead of some Special Research this time around, Trainers can get their hands on some Timed Research challenges tied to a new ticket.

To participate in the research, you’ll have to shell out $5 for the Winter Holiday event ticket that can be found in the shop. Without the ticket, you won’t get the research challenges in the event, but you can still catch all of the themed Pokémon in the wild. If you choose to buy the ticket, you can read below to see all of the Timed Research challenges and their rewards in Pokémon GO.

There’s no surprise that most of the challenges in the latest set of research are tied to Ice-type Pokémon, and so are the rewards. Four steps make up the Timed Research in total, and some decent items like Incubators and a pose are involved. All four steps and the rewards are listed below.

Winter Holiday Timed Research 1/4:

  • Walk 2km – Snover Encounter
  • Catch 10 Pokémon – Spheal Encounter
  • Catch 10 Ice-type Pokémon – Seel Encounter
  • Rewards: Sneasel Encounter, 1 Incense Lure, 50 Mega Abomasnow Energy

  • Send 7 Gifts to Friends – Stantler Encounter
  • Catch 15 Ice-type Pokémon – Snowy Castform Encounter
  • Rewards: Galarian Darumaka Encounter, 1 Incubator, 50 Abomasnow Energy

  • Catch 8 different species of Ice-type Pokémon – Alolan Sandshrew Encounter
  • Catch 15 Ice-type Pokémon – Lapras Encounter

Because this is timed in Pokémon GO, you’ll only have until December 30 to complete all of the challenges and claim your rewards. That gives you about two weeks from the start of the holiday event in GO before the rewards and the ticket go away forever.

And that’s all. For more of the latest news, updates, and guides, head over to the dedicated Pokémon GO section of our site.
