Not only that, but there are plenty of other rewards to earn during this event as well, so it’s well worth your time to take part.

When Is the Holidays Part 2 Event?

Following up on the beginning of the overall Pokemon GO Holidays Event last week, Part 2 is now starting on Thursday, December 23 at 1`0:00 am local time and will run for over a week until Friday, December 31 at 8:00 pm local time.

This is the time to celebrate the holidays in Pokemon GO, which includes two brand new sets of Timed Research that will reward you with Galarian Mr. Mimes.

Pokemon GO Holidays Catch Challenge Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

The focus of this Timed Research is to catch lots of Pokemon that are available in this Holiday event. A number of these Pokemon are Ice types, which also come into play.

While there is only one step to complete, there are five total tasks to complete that have been provided by LeekDuck.

Step 1

  • Catch 10 Pokemon – 10x Poke Balls
  • Catch 25 Pokemon – 25x Poke Balls
  • Catch 10 Ice type Pokemon – 10x Great Balls
  • Catch 40 Ice type Pokemon – 25x Great Balls
  • Catch 9 different species of Ice type Pokemon – 25x Ultra Balls
  • Reward – Galarian Mr. Mime encounter

And that will do it for the Pokemon GO Holidays Part 2 Catch Challenge Timed Research. It may only be six total tasks within one step, but there’s still plenty to do here.

The most taxing of the tasks is to catch 40 Ice type Pokemon, but the good thing is that there will be no shortage of them spawning during this event. This includes the newly added Bergmite, as well as others like Holiday Spheal and Holiday Cubchoo.

After completing all of these, you will get the rare Pokemon Galarian Mr. Mime. This was previously only available in a controversial paid event, so it’s good to be able to get not only this one, but the other free one during this event as well in the Friendship Challenge.
