Pokemon Go Hoenn Research Tasks and Rewards

Trainers, the Hoenn Timed Research is underway and players are reporting of seeing new tasks and rewards.

From Friday, May 15, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. to Friday, May 22, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. local time, you’ll have access to the Throwback Challenge 2020: Hoenn Timed Research.

The events of Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire were epic! Catching a Fire-type Pokémon will be like taking a nice, warm soak in the hot springs of Lavaridge Town, while catching a Normal-type Pokémon might remind you of battling against your dad at the Petalburg Gym! Complete all eight sets of tasks in the Hoenn Timed Research to earn 10 Rare Candies and a reward encounter with a Groudon that knows the event-exclusive attack Fire Punch.

While the Throwback Challenge 2020: Hoenn Timed Research is available, you can look forward to the following features.

  • Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region—such as Skitty, Zangoose, and Seviper—will be appearing more frequently in the wild.
  • Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region will also be available to battle in raids.
  • The following Pokémon will be hatching from 7 km Eggs: Lotad, Slakoth, Nincada, Skitty, Sableye, Mawile, Trapinch, Feebas, and Clamper
  • In honor of Rayquaza being chosen in the Pokémon of the Year vote as the number-one Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, Pikachu wearing Rayquaza hats will be appearing in the wild!
  • If you’re lucky, you might find a Shiny Skitty!
  • Event-exclusive Field Research tasks will reward encounters with Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region.
  • The distance needed to hatch an Egg once it’s been placed in an Incubator and the distance needed to earn Buddy Candy will be halved.

The Hoenn Timed Research is nine-stage research, just like the previous Kanto and Johto Research. We’ve made a list of quests, rewards, and encounters and you can find it below.
