GO Fest 2022 Special Research Paths, Tasks and Rewards

Related Articles

GO Fest 2022 is in full swing and it brings with it a special research quest that is a choose your own adventure style! 

You can choose between a Relaxed, Standard, or Master difficulty to the special research and you can also choose what you want to focus on. 

Catching, Exploring or Battling.  We’ve got the details on every branch of the special research including all of the tasks and the rewards! 

Please note that while the rewards vary based on the path you choose, the rewards for each step along the way are the same no matter what difficulty you choose within that path with the exception of the sticker you get in the final step. The only difference is the background on the stickers, bronze, silver, and gold.

In other words, when it comes to rewards: Path matters, difficulty does not. Let’s dive in!

NOTE: You will be asked to choose your path after Step 1, and then you will be asked to choose your difficulty after Step 2. To make it easier to search the entire questline in one shot we have included both steps in every section.

**This page is being updated as we get more information, some sections might be missing tasks.**
