The lead-up to Pokémon Go Fest is underway, with three sets of weekly challenges about to challenge trainers while offering some rare rewards for those who complete the Timed Research tasks. 

For the first week, called the Skill Challenge, players will need to clear three stages of challenges and an Elite challenge to complete their research. 

All of these challenges will lead up to Go Fest on July 25 and 26, but players do not need a digital ticket to participate in the weekly challenges or earn rewards. 

The Skill challenges will be available from July 3 to 8, with additional incentives for players to represent their teams in the event. If one million players from any team show up and complete all of the challenges, every player from that team will unlock an additional rare encounter. 

They do not need to complete the Elite challenges, but it’s a good bonus objective.

Here are all of the Go Fest Skill Challenge week tasks and rewards.
