Wintertime is here, and that means Pokémon Go Trainers can enjoy a winter event, too. However, in 2022 this comes with a stale aftertaste. About the Winter Holidays: Part 1 in Pokémon Go, the people from Niantic want your savings again and again in a short time: In order for you to get a limited research on Winter Holidays Part 1, you should buy an event ticket that costs 5 USD “(or the equivalent price in your local currency)”. That in the world of Pokemon Go 5 Dollars hasn’t been equivalent to 5 Euros for a long time, we only recently shed light on the Keldeo release.
We’ll tell you what you can do for free below in the Pokémon Go Winter Holidays Part 1 Guide, and then we’ll go into the steps and rewards of the Timed Research if they’re known – and if they interest you, given the fact that you should pay for it.
