Niantic has revealed Pokemon Go’s Research Breakthrough for April 2021, and this month Trainers will be able to catch a male Frillish. Here’s how to encounter the Gen V ‘mon.

First introduced in 2018, Research Breakthrough gave Go Trainers a weekly challenge that would lead them to a guaranteed encounter with a ‘mon after completing a set of daily tasks.

For April 2021, the title is going to back to the Unova region to highlight Water/Ghost-type, Frillish. Below we list all the Field Research tasks that can lead you to the creature.

How to get male Frillish in Pokemon Go

At the start of every month, a new Research Breakthrough is introduced to the game. Players who log in will automatically be given a single Field Research task every day that rewards a stamp upon completion.

You can only collect one stamp per day, so Trainers will need to complete these quests across a week to reach the final goal which triggers an encounter with a male Frillish.

New Field Research tasks can also be received by spinning PokeStops, although the game still limits you to receiving a single stamp per day. Below we will list the Field Research available in April.
