Pokémon Go Greedy Gluttons quest steps, field research and rewards

Snorlax encounters, the arrival of shiny Munchlax and more await.

The Greedy Gluttons event celebrates the "heavy and hungry hitters" in Pokémon Go in November 2022.

The headline is the arrival of a new Ultra Beast in Pokémon Go - the much teased Guzzlord - in raids.

Then, from Monday 14th November until the end date of Thursday, November 17th - there will be a new Team Go Rocket event, Ultra Beast Protection Efforts. Until then - enjoy new field research tasks and a themed quest.

Greedy Gluttons field research tasks in Pokémon Go

The Greedy Gluttons event has just three field research tasks available by spinning PokéStops in Pokémon Go throughout.

Remember - these tasks can be saved and completed after the event ends (on Thursday, 17th November) if you prefer.

Here the Greedy Gluttons field research tasks in Pokémon Go:

  • Use three Berries to help catch Pokémon: Exeggcute, Cherubi or Swirlix encounter
  • Use 15 Berries to help catch Pokémon: 1000 Stardust
  • Give you Buddy 15 treats: 1000 Stardust

Don't forget to also participate in the latest Team Go Rocket quest, Ultra Beast Protection Efforts.

Thank you to SilphScience from reddit for the help with this information.

Exeggcute, Cherubi and Swirlix can appear in event-exclusive field research tasks - and all have the (low) chance of being shiny.
