The Season of Go has arrived! The 6th Anniversary is here, which includes the return of Zapdos. While Go Fest 2022 may be behind us, there are still three special research quests you might be working on - Pokémon Go Fest 2022, Rhi's Arrival and A Radiant World. This season has also seen the lowering of the requirement for Candy XL and introduced the first Ultra Beast, Nihilego.


Tips for Go Tour: Johto Battle Challenge research quest

Here are some tips which will help you complete the Go Tour: Johto Battle Challenge research quest in Pokémon Go:

  • Remember, just like Team Go Rocket Grunts, each Go Gym Trainer can be found at PokéStops. You need to fight them in the above order to complete each quest step.
  • However, know that at the time of writing, encounters with Trainers are very rare. As a result, for those with Tickets, we recommend focusing on other tasks first, especially those which add to your Collection Challenge medal progress.
  • During battle, it's worth focusing on strong type effectiveness and weaknesses. That said, you can brute force through most battles with a selection of the best Pokémon regardless!
  • If you are worried about healing items, each step rewards you with a Hyper Potion and a Max Revive. If you are running low beyond that, then spinning Stops and opening gifts for more healing items is your best bet.

Have fun during Pokémon Go Tour: Johto!
