What are Pokémon GO Field Research Tasks and Rewards
If you are not aware of Pokémon GO monthly field research tasks and the rewards then you must continue reading further. Every month the Pokémon GO Field Research tasks are refreshed with a newer set of tasks, rewards, bonuses, and the featured Pokémon. You can access these tasks by tapping onto the binoculars icon present on the bottom right corner on the Pokémon GO main screen. There are three sections inside the binoculars icon, and the field research tasks can be seen in the middle “Field” section. All you need to do is complete the given tasks according to your convenience, or delete it to make room for a new one.
Pokémon GO Field Research Stamps
By completing each task, you get a stamp that leads to a Research Breakthrough Reward, that can be collected after completing 7 tasks. Every time you spin a disk located at any Pokestop or Gym, you get a new task. If you are not sure if you could complete the task then you can delete it and spin another Pokestop to get a new task. Also, you can only collect one stamp per day, irrespective of the number of tasks you complete daily. So, it is wiser to only collect the stamps one day at a time, even if you have already completed the stacked up tasks.
That would make things easier for you to collect the Research Breakthrough Box and get the monthly featured Pokémon. One more thing that confuses many new trainers, is that you can collect and complete tasks all over again until the end of the month to catch the featured Pokémon again. The Pokémon that you encounter upon completing the Research Breakthrough Tasks has the flee rate of 0%, which means you will have to catch that Pokémon to be able to do the tasks all over again. Thus, you can use some Razz Berries, or Pinap Berries before throwing the Pokeball so that you do not end up wasting too many of your balls.
We discussed the Pokemon GO Field Research Tasks and Rewards of the ongoing month. We also learned about the field research tasks in detail, how you can get these tasks, and what does the research breakthrough box mean. Just remember the basic things, that is to take tasks by spinning Pokestops, do one task each day to collect a stamp daily, and after completing seven tasks, and collecting seven stamps, the research breakthrough rewards box will unlock.
