There’s a new Timed Research to complete that only GO Fest fans will encounter – here’s everything you can earn with Pokemon GO Shimmering Strides!

If you’re a sneaker fan, you won’t want to miss out on the Pokemon GO Shimmering Strides Timed Research.

After all, completing this new bonus research will grant players the Carbink-themed shoes for their avatars! This exclusive Timed Research isn’t available to purchase by itself, but comes as an incentive to purchase the upcoming GO Fest Global Ticket early!

How to Get Pokemon GO Shimmering Strides Timed Research

To get the Pokemon GO Shimmering Strides Timed Research, you must buy a GO Fest 2023 Global Ticket before Monday, August 1, 2023. This is on sale in the in-game shop for $14.99 (or local currency equivalent).

After purchasing the ticket, the Timed Research will last until Saturday, August 26, 2023 at 9 AM local time, giving players limited time to complete their tasks.

Then, from August 26-27, the Pokemon GO Fest 2023 global celebrations will officially kick-off.

Is the Shimmering Strides Timed Research Worth Buying?

No, it’s certainly not worth paying $14.99 just for the Shimmering Strides Timed Research, however players buying a Pokemon GO Fest 2023 Global Ticket will also receive a Special Research leading to an encounter with the Mythical Pokemon Diance when the event rolls around on August 26.

They will also receive another Special Research focused on Mega Rayquaza and the new Meteorites on August 27, ensuring there’s plenty of value in the ticket.

At the end of the day, Shimmering Strides won’t be convincing many fans to buy the Global Ticket if they weren’t going to already. But it’s a nice pre-order bonus for those already looking to take part in this year’s GO Fest.

Here’s what the Timed Research has to offer:
