  • Send 10 Gifts to Friends- Gives you a Delibird and also results in 500 Stardust
  • Earn Three Candies While Walking with a Buddy – Can get you a Meowth which also results in 500 Stardust

With these three tasks, click run and stack the tasks up. You want to complete these on a specific date, which will be December 18th at 11 am local time until 5 pm local time the same day. That date is giving out 2 x Catch Stardust, so each of these Pokemon nets you 1000 Stardust. If you use the Star Piece, you are now getting 1500 per catch.
