In Pokémon Go, the 2020 nostalgia challenge is currently enticing players behind the stove and employing a total of 36 steps from a temporary research to flush out a lot of rewards. The highlight of the temporary research is, however, the name already suggests that the nine steps of the research can only be completed within a certain period of time – that's why you don't get a "call" from Professor Willow for the limited research in Pokémon Go like with a special research. However, if you are doing all of the temporary research on the 2020 Nostalgia Challenge, you can look forward to the special research Champ of the 2020 Nostalgia Challenge at the beginning of June, which includes Galar-Flunschlik. Galar Meowth and Genesect brings. So there is no reason to ignore the temporary research!

The nostalgia challenge 2020 is still open until May 8, 2020 at 1:00 p.m .: Kanto is active, until then you still have time to complete the first nine steps, which you can find in our corresponding guide. On May 8, 2020 from 1 p.m. and until May 15, 2020 at 1 p.m., the 2020 nostalgia challenge is: Johto active; Another nine-step temporary research that brings you a legendary Ho-Oh with the earthquake attack, among other things. First there is an overview of the bonuses, which are also active in the meantime, then you will find the nine steps for nostalgia challenge 2020: Johto in the guide and their reward.
