The final in-person Pokémon Go Fest event of 2022 is finally here, with players gathering in Sapporo, Japan to battle, catch, and trade Pokémon—including several new inclusions that are only available at the event, as of now.

Xurkitree is making its first appearance in Pokémon Go at Go Fest: Sapporo, though it will also be available to players around the world during the Go Fest Finale on Aug. 27. Along with the Ultra Beast, players can earn an encounter with Shaymin (Sky Forme) by competing Special Research. 

Shiny Pansage and Swirlix are also available for the first time to encounter, which is a nice bonus since you will need to catch both of them as you work to complete the various Collection Challenges throughout the event too.

There is also a tie-in event for players globally, which will help everyone complete the ongoing Global Challenge and achieve Ultra Unlock bonuses for upcoming events. 

If you plan to take part in Go Fest: Sapporo, the Special Research is only available at the in-person event and is split between a park and city experience, meaning you will need to finish the various content as the goals become achievable.

Here are all of the research tasks and rewards involved.
