For those unaware, the Pokemon GO Throwback Challenge is a kind of Special Research, which comes with an added difficulty of being timed. Players will be expected to complete the research challenges under a specified time period, post which anything left incomplete would disappear.

As part of the special challenge, the game will also offer doubled XP gains for catching Pokemon, raiding, and hatching eggs. In addition, there is also a batch of Field Research tasks where players will be able to encounter a number of Kanto region Pokemon on successful completion.
