Lunar New Year Pokémon GO 2021 Rewards are the items and encounters you can get for completing the Timed Research during this year's event. Here's what you can earn and how to get them during Pokémon GO's Lunar New Year event.

Until Feb. 14, you can take part in an event Timed Research. As it's the Year of the Ox, you'll earn encounters with Tauros and Miltank. Along the way, you'll also get some encounters with red-colored Pokémon. The cherry on top of this Lunar New Year's research is Mega Gyarados Energy, helping you get a head start with the newly debuted Mega Gyarados.
