The Kanto Celebration Event timed research quest consists of four steps, which each contain three individual challenges and you’ll be rewarded for each challenge and full step you complete. Since this is a timed research quest, it will vanish once the questline is completed, so you need to complete it before the event ends if you wish to earn all of the rewards.

Hope you enjoy the Kanto Celebration event!
