Julia Lee (she/her) is a guides producer, writing guides for games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Genshin Impact. She helped launch the Rift Herald in 2016.

Day one of the 2020 Pokémon Go Fest includes a Special Research Task set that rewards tons of Great Balls and Incense.

Only players who buy the Pokémon Go Fest Ticket for $14.99 will be able to participate in the Special Research. Upon logging on during the event period and starting the research, players will have an unlimited amount of time to finish it. It won’t expire when Go Fest ends, so no need to panic if you don’t finish by the end of the day.

The biomes will change between Battle, Friendship, Fire, Water, and Grass, at the top of every hour.
