Pokémon GO Anniversary Event 2022 - All Timed Research

With nearly six years under its belt, Pokémon GO is celebrating its next Anniversary event, and that means some brand new timed research for everyone to complete. This time around, there will also be some additional rewards tied to the Ultra Unlock bonuses from the GO Fest events.

As the 6th Anniversary Event goes live around the world, the timed research challenges have been revealed in Pokémon GO. On top of the six sections of the timed research, there will be a ton of field research rewards tied to starters from every generation. But the exclusive rewards from the event challenges are what you'll want to focus on for the best return on time.

In total, there are six steps in the timed research for the Pokémon GO Anniversary Event in 2022. Time research challenges were always confirmed, but after Pokémon GO Fest: Berlin, the Ultra Unlock bonuses were added to the list. That makes the full list of rewards far more lucrative overall.

The event itself will begin on July 6 and will end on July 12, 2022. That gives every Trainer close to two weeks to complete all of the challenges, and claim rewards such as Rotom. All of the challenges and their rewards are listed below.
