The Pokémon Go New Year’s 2022 is now underway, which means players are going to be encountering a lot of Pokémon ready to celebrate alongside them. There are even a few new elements playing out for the ongoing Season of Heritage storyline. 

The main appeal for the event will be the new set of Timed Research and increased encounters with rare Pokémon, including multiple costumed Pokémon. 

During the event, which runs from Dec. 31 to Jan. 4, players will see the return of 2020 Glasses Slowpoke and 2021 Glasses Slowbro, along with the introduction of 2022 Glasses Slowking. Other costumed Pokémon such as Party Hat Wurmple and previous New Year’s Hat Pokémon will also be appearing. 

And, in typically New Year’s fashion, players can enjoy an in-game fireworks display on the overworld map from 11pm local time on Dec. 31 to 12am local time on Jan. 2. 

But, if you are solely focused on completing the event-exclusive research, here are all of the tasks and rewards you will be dealing with.
