Understanding Pokemon Go research

Understanding how field research tasks, breakthrough rewards and special quests work is essential to be a successful Pokemon Go trainer.

In addition to understanding it, it is also vital to know how to manage your research - choosing which field research tasks to complete, saving stamps, etc.

Doing this will allow you to maximize the number of legendary Pokemon you can capture in an attempt to bag one with decent IVs.
