For a limited time during January in Pokémon Go, you’ll be able to complete the Season of Heritage: XP challenge from the start of January until January 31, ending at 11:59 in your local time zone. You don’t have to go too out of your way for this quest, but you can expect things to become much more difficult as you reach the final tasks.
