Pokemon GO Water Festival Catch Challenge Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

Take to the water for this research!

May 12, 2022

There are many different events in Pokemon GO and this latest is a returning one after a few years with the Water Festival and this time we have a special Catch Challenge Timed Research to complete as well.

After taking place in 2017 through 2019, the Water Festival has been on a hiatus for a few years until its return this year.

Not only is there a new Timed Research to finish, but also the introduction of a couple new Pokemon as well for you to add to your Pokedex.

As for bonuses, Rainy Lure Modules will last for two hours during the event. There will be 2x Hatch Candy and an increased chance of XL Candy from hatches as well.

Water Festival 2022 Catch Challenge Timed Research Tasks and Rewards

The Water Festival 2022 Catch Challenge Timed Research is a bit different from the A Poni Adventure Special Research, as it is only made up of one total step. However, there are more tasks to complete within this one step that you can all work towards at the same time.

Thanks to LeekDuck, we know all of the tasks that will make up the Timed Research, which you can see below.

Step 1

  • Catch 15 Pokemon – 20x Poke Balls
  • Catch 50 Pokemon – 25x Great Balls
  • Catch 25 Water type Pokemon – 25x Ultra Balls
  • Make 25 Curveball Throws – Dewpider encounter
  • Catch 10 different species of Pokemon – 50x Mega Gyarados Energy
  • Rewards – Lapras wearing a scarf encounter, 1,000 XP, 1,000 Stardust

That concludes the Water Festival 2022 Catch Challenge Timed Research in Pokemon GO. The tasks are all pretty easy to pull off, though the Curveball throws one may cause some trouble for those that struggle with them.

As mentioned above, this research gives you a chance to catch one of the brand new additions in this event with Dewpider, along with some other good rewards as well along the way.

Just remember that you have a limited time to take part in this Timed Research, so make sure to get it done before it expires on Friday, May 20, at 8:00 pm local time.
