The Pokemon Go Mountains of Power event has arrived, offering a new set of Timed Research and Field Research tasks to complete for some great rewards.

Aside from any Raid Boss changes and Shiny debuts, one of the first things Trainers want to know when a new Pokemon Go event begins is what rewards they can earn for completing Timed Research and Field Research tasks.

Working through these event-exclusive tasks is one of the best ways to stock up on important resources like Berries and Poke Balls, but they also lead to encounters with rare or powerful Pokemon like Mawile, Onix, and Beldum.
