Search for all kinds of mountain-based Pokemon!

January 6, 2022

Pokemon GO just wrapped up its Winter Holiday and New Year’s events and is now moving right into the new Mountains of Power event that comes with its own Timed Research for players to complete.

The Mountains of Power event revolves around Professor Willow discovering that the key to unlocking the second lock in the mysterious door is related to Rock and Steel type Pokemon.

As a result, the Mountains of Power event features those two types, as well as others you’d find in the mountains. In addition, the event will include 1/2 walking distance to earn hearts with your buddy, which will help with the new Timed Research as well.

When Is The Mountains of Power Event?

Pokemon GO’s Mountains of Power event starts on Friday, January 7, at 10:00 am local time and will run for just under a week until Thursday, January 13 at 8:00 pm local time.

During the time of this event, the Mountains of Power Timed Research will also be available in Pokemon GO, which will expire entirely on January 13 at 8:00 pm local time.

Pokemon GO Mountains of Power Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

The Mountains of Power Timed Research consists of only two steps to complete, each with three tasks. All of them are pretty basic tasks to complete, which shouldn’t take you too long.

You can see all six of the total tasks and the resulting rewards below as provided by LeekDuck.

Step 1

  • Catch 5 Pokemon – Slugma encounter
  • Earn 2 Candies walking with your buddy – Ferroseed encounter
  • Hatch an Egg – Alolan Geodude encounter
  • Rewards – Absol encounter, 1,000x Stardst, 10x Great Balls

Step 2

  • Catch 6 different species of Pokemon – Chimecho encounter
  • Earn 2 Candies walking with your buddy – Onix encounter
  • Hatch 2 Eggs – Beldum encounter
  • Rewards – Mawile encounter, 2,000x Stardust, 10x Ultra Balls

That is it for the Mountains of Power Timed Research, which features a number of different style tasks. None of these should be very difficult to complete, with the walking with your buddy ones being easier due to the 1/2 walk distance bonus.

Make sure to complete all of the Timed Research done before Thursday, January 13, at 8:00 pm so that you don’t miss out on anything.
