There are some great rewards on offer for completing the event-exclusive Field Research tasks during the Festival of Lights, with the most exciting being Dedenne, which just made its debut in Pokemon Go.

Two other standout rewards are Magnemite, which will get you closer to evolving a Magnezone, and Electabuzz, which will help you get an Electivire. Both of these are brilliant attackers in PvE.
