Global Challenge 22 Pokemon GO Catch Candy

The Pokemon GO 22 Global Challenge is a part of the 2022 Water Festival, and the reward for completing is double Catch Candy, as we’ve already mentioned. Now, this challenge began on Wednesday, May 11th at 10 AM PDT / 1 PM EDT / 6 PM BST / 7 PM CEST. It will last until Saturday, May 21st at 1 AM PDT / 4 AM EDT / 9 AM BST / 10 AM CEST. So, what does the global Pokemon Trainer community have to do to unlock this bonus? Oh, not much, just catch 600,000,000 Water-type Pokemon until the time runs out. No, you did not read that wrong and I didn’t make a typo. The requirement for getting the double Catch Candy reward is capturing six hundred million Water-type Pokemon. I mean, sure, piece of cake, I’ll get right on it, bang it out in an afternoon.

So, yeah, that’s basically all you need to know about the Pokemon GO Global Challenge Catch Candy bonus in the Water Festival of 2022. Jokes aside, six hundred million is a very tall order. By comparison, back in 2017, Trainers the world over managed to capture five hundred eighty-nine million Magikarp in that year’s festival. Now, on one hand, Magikarp is very specific; your options are much wider now that all Water-types count. On the other hand, the Pokemon GO player count has dropped off significantly in the five intervening years. Sure, the numbers have picked back up during the pandemic when Niantic removed some of the limitations, but those are back in place now. So, I have no idea whether this is going to work.
