Pokémon GO Fest 2020 is almost here. To prepare, there will be three weeks of timed research challenges. Coaches will receive great individual rewards, as well as the ability to unlock Pokémon for Pokémon GO Fest 2020.

What is a timed research challenge?

Introduced in the Throwback Challence event, a timed research challenge is a special research that must be completed within a defined period of time. If it is not completed before the time expires, it will disappear forever. There are bonuses during timed research that will make it easier to complete and the bonuses are quite impressive. For this timed research challenge, there are both individual rewards and group rewards in the form of Pokémon unlocked for Pokémon GO Fest 2020.
