Pokemon GO New Year's 2022 Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

Ring in the New Year with Pokemon GO.

December 31, 2021

2022 is finally upon us and Niantic is celebrating with the Pokemon Go New Year’s 2022 Timed Research and we know what tasks you will have to complete and the rewards you will get in return.

This is far from a first in Pokemon GO, as we’ve had a number of New Year’s related events so far in the game.

For New Year’s 2022, players will enjoy 2x Hatch Stardust, 2x Hatch Candy, and 1/2 Hatch Distance, as well as plenty of event exclusive Pokemon and the aforementioned Timed Research.

When Is The New Year’s 2022 Timed Research Available?

The Pokemon Go New Year’s 2022 Timed Research is a fairly limited event across only around four days starting on Friday, December 31, at 10:00 pm local time and running through Tuesday, January 4, at 8:00 pm local time.

During this time, you will have access to the exclusive Timed Research that will go away on January 4 at 8:00 pm local time.

Pokemon GO New Year’s 2022 Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

The Pokemon Go New Year’s 2022 Timed Research consists of four steps worth of three tasks each for you to complete.

There are some good rewards mixed in here too, including event exclusive Pokemon encounters and a Poffin. We have the full list of tasks available courtesy of LeekDuck, which you can see below.

Step 1

  • Catch 10 Pokemon – 10x Poke Balls
  • Walk 1 km – 250x Stardust
  • Make 5 Curveball Throws – 5x Razz Berries
  • Rewards – 2,022 XP, New Year’s Hat Hoothoot encounter

Step 2

  • Catch 7 different species of Pokemon – 5x Great Balls
  • Hatch an Egg – 1,000 Stardust
  • Evolve 3 Pokemon – 5x Nanab Berries
  • Rewards – 2,022 XP, New Year’s Hat Pikachu, 500x Stardust

Step 3

  • Power up Pokemon 5 times – 5x Pinap Berries
  • Use 5 Berries to help catch Pokemon – 500 XP
  • Earn 5 hearts with your buddy – Party Hat Wurmple encounter
  • Rewards – 2,022 XP, 1x Poffin, 500x Stardust

Step 4

  • Make 5 Great Throws – 5x Ultra Balls
  • Earn a Candy walking with your buddy – Party Hat Wobbuffet encounter
  • Send 5 Gifts to friends – 1x King’s Rock
  • Rewards – 2,022 XP, 2020 Glasses Slowpoke encounter, 500x Stardust

As you can see, this is a lot more involved than the accompanying Mega Steelix Energy Timed Research that is also available. Still, none of these tasks should be overly difficult to complete.

Really the only ones that can’t be completely in a few minutes are walking 1km, Hatch an Egg, and Earn a Candy walking with your buddy. The good thing with the Hatch an Egg task though is that there is 1/2 hatch distance mentioned above, so it won’t take as long.

Just make sure that you get all of these tasks complete in the next few days, as this Timed Research will not be available for long as the New Year begins.
