'April Fools' 2-Oh?-22' quest steps in Pokémon Go

If you want to unlock the April Fools' 2-Oh?-22 special research quest in Pokémon Go, you need to play the game before 11:59pm (local time) on Friday, 1st April. Once you've unlocked this special research quest, you'll be able to complete it at your own pace.

We do, however, recommend finishing it on April Fool's Day 2022 itself, because some of the challenges will be easier to complete.

Tips on how to complete April Fools' 2-Oh?-22 in Pokémon Go

Here are some tips which will help you complete the April Fools' 2-Oh?-22 special research in Pokémon Go:

  • 'Catch 3 of the Transform Pokémon' means catch three Dittos. Due to this, we highly recommend completing this special research quest before April Fools Day ends, because Ditto will be appearing more frequently throughout this event.

Catching Ditto in Pokémon Go
  • If you're having trouble finding Pokémon, then try using an incense to make them appear in your current location.

Good luck completing April Fools' 2-Oh?-22!
