Pokémon Go’s “Party Up” event focuses on the in-game Party Play feature and brings back a bunch of the new Pokémon that have made their debut throughout the season. It runs from Nov. 22-27.

During the event, you can do five special trades per day, instead of just one. You’ll also get doubled XP from raids, more candy from trading, and guaranteed XL candy from trading.

If you didn’t complete the Master Ball Timed Research, you can also buy a pass for $7.99 to get a Special Research Task set that rewards one.

Below, we list out the Timed Research Tasks, perks, and other bonuses for the “Party Up” event.
