Pokemon Go: November field research tasks rewards and encounters - full list

by Paul Cotton


The full list of Pokemon Go November 2019 field research tasks and rewards has been revealed.

Field research tasks, obtained by spinning Pokestops, are refreshed every two months, resulting in different rewards for completing them.

The Pokemon encounters they award players are a great chance to find a specific species, in addition to increasing your chances of finding one with good IVs. Pokemon encountered by completing a field research task have an IV floor of 10, which gives you a much better opportunity of finding that coveted perfect IV.

Seven stamps will get you a research breakthrough reward...

The likes of Chansey, Dratini, Magmar and others can be difficult to find in the wild. Using field research tasks is a great way to find these species and even get their shiny forms.
