Go Fest Global research task rewards explained in Pokémon Go

The various rewards for the latest set of Research Tasks.

Go Fest Global research tasks are a time limited series of quests available in Pokémon Go to coincide with Pokémon Go Fest in Yokohama and the latest Global Challenge dates.

These tasks are available at PokéStops, replacing some of the current roster of monthly Research Tasks currently available.

Go Fest Global research task rewards explained in Pokémon Go

The Go Fest Global tasks are live in Pokémon Go from August 6th as part of the latest Global Challenge, introducing new spawns as well as special Research Tasks.

These Go Fest Global tasks are available until August 12th, 9am BST / 1am PST, although tasks can be completed and rewards can be claimed at any point after that if you've picked up the task before the event ends and keep hold of it.

Go Fest Global research tasks list:

  • Evolve 3 Pokemon
  • Land 2 Curveball Throws in a row
  • Hatch 1 Egg
  • Win 1 Raid Battle
  • Win 3 Gym Battles

All Go Fest Global research tasks rewards you with one of the following Pokémon:

  • Lotad
  • Poliwag
  • Snorunt
  • Swablu
  • Tailow

Thanks to Calder027 on reddit for fleshing out the above.

The Season of Rising Heroes is here! It began with the first Gen 9 Pokémon - Gimmighoul and Gholdengo - appearing in Pokémon Go. As you continue your Pokémon Go adventure, make sure to battle Giovanni, the Team Go Rocket Leaders or in the new Go Battle League season. Don't forget to keep an eye out for Kecleon or, if you purchased it, work on the Masterwork Research: Wish Granted quest. Elsewhere, be sure to use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. This incense may also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

What else do you need to know about Go Fest Global research task rewards?

First of all - all the above Pokémon have the potential to be Shiny, and though not knowing exactly which one at a glance you'll get isn't great for completionists, it's good to know there's a chance you could get something really valuable from it.

There is, however, a way to know what the Go Fest research task reward is. Though offering a Pokémon from a pool instead of one known creature is new for research, it should be known that the Pokémon given from that specific tasks and PokeStop is the same for everyone.

This means, if you know someone who has collected a Lotad from one of the above tasks, everyone else will do too until the end of the day, when the task will reset as usual. (Thanks to azurelatios on reddit for confirming this!)
