In the Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale Event, learn all about the new Special Research challenges and their rewards.
Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale - All Special Research

The Pokémon GO Fest 2022 Finale Event is finally going live worldwide, and now we know which Special Research challenges to expect. In conclusion to the biggest event in the mobile game for the year, the tasks and rewards are set to be the most lucrative to date.

After the initial GO Fest 2022 event ended in June, Ultra Beasts started to appear in the game, beginning with Nihilego. Since then, three more Ultra Beasts have been featured for in-person GO Fest events but were exclusive. Now, Trainers will have access to them all through Special Research raids.

There are two sets of Special Research that Trainers can complete in the GO Fest 2022 Finale event. To participate in the major research, you'll need to purchase a ticket costing $10.99. If you bought the ticket for the initial GO Fest in June, you're all set to participate in the Finale.
