The Johto Celebration Event is beginning around the world in Pokémon GO and it’s time to get started on all the cool things you have to do in the game for the next five days. One of those activities is the Timed Research that will launch alongside the event.

To break it all down, here’s our Pokémon GO Johto Celebration Event Timed Research guide with all the tasks and rewards.
