With how wild Pokémon Go’s December Community Day is, featuring 22 Pokémon from across two years of events, the event-exclusive Timed Research is actually pretty easy to complete if you are actively catching all of the Pokémon. 

Because there are 22 featured Pokémon that you will be trying to capture, most of the Special Research tasks will involve catching a set amount of each of them. Thankfully for fans, most of the Pokémon you need to catch will be appearing more frequently in the wild, and any other Pokémon that pop up will just be bonuses. 

Since it is a bigger event, there is a main set of Special Research, Today’s View Research and exclusive Field Research that you can grind and complete. If you plan on trying to get all of the rewards, here is everything you need to know about Pokémon Go’s December Community Day research.
