The February pool included five of these with the addition of the legendary Kanto Pokemon, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres.

Regice, Regirock and Registeel are now available as Pokemon Go research breakthroughs...


What is field research?

Field research is one element of research quests within Pokemon Go. Field research items are obtained from PokeStops. The task itself is from a set pool but is random.

These tasks change monthly and can also vary in special events. Tasks range from catching Pokemon, using berries and making great throws.

By completing research tasks you can earn a stamp at a rate of one per day maximum. Upon receiving seven stamps you are rewarded with a research breakthrough which entails an encounter with one the legendary Pokemon currently in the pool.


What is Special Research?

In contrast to field research, special research are based upon fixed tasks across multiple stages. Furthermore, the rewards for completing them are also fixed.

Each stage of a special research quest provides lower end rewards such as Stardust and Poke balls. Once all of these are completed you get the end reward. For example, the Let's Go Meltan special research quest provides an encounter with, you guessed it, Meltan.
