How does A Radiant Reunion work during the Go Fest 2022 Finale of Pokémon Go
A Radiant Return is a special research quest exclusive to players who purchased a Go Fest 2022 ticket or one just for the Finale event in Pokémon Go; you must also log into the game at least once on Saturday, 27th August between 10am to 6pm (local time).
If you’re playing through A Radiant Reunion on Saturday, 27th August, the quest will gradually unlock two steps at a time when a new habitat hour starts, beginning with Willow’s Return. All you have to do is complete the previous steps in the quest for the next set to appear when the habitat changes and, if you want to know when that is, visit our Go Fest 2022 Finale habitat schedule page.
Thankfully, you don’t have to complete A Radiant Reunion during the event, because, as long as you’ve unlocked Willow’s Return, you’ll be able to play through both special research quests whenever you like.
Good luck completing A Radiant Reunion!
