All Pokémon Go: Timeless Travels Special Research tasks and rewards

A full season of traveling and grinding.

With the start of Pokémon Go’s Adamant Time event on Dec. 11, players finally have access to the Timeless Travels’ seasonal Special Research that will be available to complete through the end of February 2024. This is a massive piece of research that will take weeks to complete, so make sure to keep track of every task and reward along the way.

For the season-exclusive Timeless Travels Special Research, players will have from Dec. 11 to Feb. 29 at 11:59pm local time to complete 14 pages of content. The goal this season is to help Professor Willow on a new research expedition to “uncover the legends of the Hisui region” and some new Pokémon

Because the Timeless Travels Special Research is seasonal content, it has 14 distinct pages of tasks and rewards. Several pages will include research tasks that will take a week or longer to complete based on time-locked content such as catching a Pokémon or spinning PokéStops over several days.

There is no real rush to complete it, however, as it will be available until Feb. 29 at 11:59pm local time, which is when the Timeless Travels season concludes. That means you can do a lot of heavy lifting during Go Tour: Sinnoh as long as you don’t delay the longer tasks.
