Adventure Week is almost over, but thanks to Trainers during Pokémon GO Fest 2022, Ultra Unlock bonuses have been added to the event. One of these bonuses is a special Limited Research Day!

Available for one day only, you’ll still get to experience Adventure Week’s bonuses, Egg rates, Pokémon Raid appearances, and more. Yet, for this Research Day things are shaking up when it comes to Limited Research tasks and rewards, Tyrunt and Amaura encounters, and Pokémon that will be appearing in the wild. Get all the details with our guide below.
