A new Pokémon Go Special Research set has launched now that we’re in a new season. Named after the season, “Timeless Travels” will be available to anyone who opens the game and starts the research during the season, which ends March 1, 2024.

The research is meant to be completed over the span of the season, so you don’t need to rush. (You won’t need to rush in general, since it’ll be permanently available after unlocking.) That being said, there’s some pretty good rewards in here and the tasks just involve you pretty much playing the game as you would normally anyway.
