Pokemon Go Season of Heritage: XP Challenge Timed Research Tasks Guide

Earn lots of experience points to receive in-game rewards.

Trainers, as part of Pokemon Go’s Season of Heritage, players can complete a series of Timed Research tasks called the “Season of Heritage: XP Challenge.”

These Timed Research tasks aren’t available to all players for free. Instead, players can unlock access to these Timed Research tasks by purchasing a ticket for the Pokemon Go Tour: Johto event before January 10, 2022. (You can learn more about the Pokemon Go Tour: Johto event in our previous coverage.)

There are 15 stages to complete in the Season of Heritage: XP Challenge. Each stage will require players to earn a specific number of experience points during the month of January 2022 in order to earn in-game rewards. Altogether, these tasks will require players to earn at least 240,000 experience points in January 2022.

In addition to earning rewards for each of the 15 stages, if players earn 240,000 experience points in January 2022, they’ll receive an additional prize: a Goomy Hat for their avatar. The Goomy Hat is rewarded through a separate Timed Research task that’s also called “Season of Heritage: XP Challenge.” You can check your progress on this task at any time to see how close you are to reaching 240,000 experience points.
