Pokémon GO's Charge Up event is here and the rewards for the Timed Research are everywhere. For this event, Niantic has split it into four parts- short for an event like this but gives trainers plenty of time to complete.

The Season of Legends is off to a fast start this month, and the new Charge Up event is a nice easy break from last week's quick-paced Searching for Legends event.
